MC 121 x 3

Well Hi Folks,

I'm back, hopefully refreshed but what miserable weather, mind you did not let it stop us as we went to several seasides over the week and at the weekend we went blackberry picking even though we had got caught out with several showers. But am pleased to say the two of us picked 7.5kg of blackberries which are now jam, yummmy.

Down to business then, I have made 3 quick cards using this layout. I have used white card stock to make the square cards, 2 different coloured card stocks for each card, 3 different patterned papers for each card, gem stones, card candy, sentiments, spectrum noir pens and 3 lovely digi images and these are all for 3 males, yeah!

I hope you like these and hopefully I will be back later in the week with the next MC, fingers crossed, until next time do take care and happy crafting, lol

Week 45 Challenge - Ribbon inspired by Creative Coops

Hi Folks,

I decided that this challenge I would use a layout that inspired me so much by another crafter called Creative Coops but sadly I could not do it justice but I tried my best.

I have made 2 cards I can not decide which is best, I suppose each to their own. I have used white card stock to make the square cards, 3 patterned papers per card, 2 coloured card stocks per card, ribbon, cuttlebug, embossing folder swiss dots that I so love, flowers, gem stones, sentiments, card candy and a lovely rubber stamped image called Bat Wings and Boots, what a fab image it is too.

Perhaps folks you could tell me which one is best as I got a bit frustrated with these especially the pink one as part of it stuck sky whiff which is rather annoying but then is it more the stripes and spots with my eye sight, I just dont know.

Anyway until next time, do take care of yourselves, happy crafting, lol
