With a Flourish

Ok so I'm getting better only two weeks since my last post. Not that I've not been making cards. I have been beavering away I've just not had time to show you. But today is your lucky day. What with the clocks going back my tummy is telling me it's lunchtime but the clock is saying hold on you have an hour to go. So with time on my hands I have time to post this card for my entry into this weeks Corrosive challenge 136 which this week is with a Flourish.
This is an acceptance card I was asked to make for someone in response to a wedding invitation they had received in the shape of a passport as the bride & groom are getting married in Las Vegas next year.The flourishes do have black stickles on but unfortunately it isn't showing in the photo.
This is also for Inky Impressions Challenge 30 - Anything Goes

So Sophisticated




Can you believe this wonderful weather we are having at the moment, who would think it's October. At least the balmy weather is giving hubby and I a chance to catch up on some very neglected gardening duties. Well hubby is working under instructions from me.
I manged to get to the Knitting and Stitching show last week with friends and what a lovely day it was too. I could have brought lots of goodies but was very refrained and only brought some wool to make a felt bag, so I was very pleased with myself for being so good.
This card was inspired by a card a friend made. Hopefully if they are looking they may be inspired to get back into crafting now the last few months are over with and they are feeling better. I have certainly missed their inspiration the last few months.

This card is for the following challenges.
Anything goes Challenge Blog challenge 51 die cuts/punches or both.
365 Cards challenge 229 - So Sophisticated
Crafty Cardmakers - anything goes

Time to put your feet up.

Hello bloggers I'm finally back. Can it really be August since my last post. Things have finally calmed down at home and a girl can at last concentrate on the important things in life like crafting and having fun. I even managed a trip to the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show in September and of course came back with a few goodies.This little fella being one of them. I just love Lili of the Valley stamps and have been itching to stamp him up for the last few weeks.
This card is for Sketch Saturday 176 which was a great sketch to follow.
