What a collection

CARD NUMBER ONE

There are a few so please bear with me........


Over at Christmas Card Challenges there is a photo to inspire us.....


......very colourful isn't it.....here is my interpretation......


It is a joyfold style card (or my attempt at one) with a gorgeous Lili of the Valley image 'Trimming the Tree' have added satin ribbon, lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.



CARD NUMBER TWO

Over at Dream Valley Challenges the challenge is buttons....


Here I have not one but two card with buttons added, yes again I have used those Lili of the Valley images.....I find them so easy and versatile and they are quick makes for cards.

NUMBER THREE

Over at Craft a Scene it is all about 'Fowl Weather'. so I couldn't resist this tag I made....I hope it meets the challenge requirements....I have to admit that my husband coloured the bird in for me.....I have just inked with distress inks and added lace, ribbon, imitation pearls, feathers and flowers



 CARD NUMBER FOUR

Over at Flutter By Wednesday you have to have a butterfly or fairy on your creation......here is my effort.....


I am looking at the card on the left hand side for this challenge, again another Lili of the Valley image......I have soooo many......

 CARD NUMBER FIVE

Glitter n Sparkle are having a 'Monochromatic' moment......I thought this might fit this challenge.....and yes! it is another Lili of the Valley image....i have gone for Black and White here.


That's the lot from me

Flowers with Friends........

Apologies for my abscence but ever since I became unwell earlier this month, i have been in such pain with my back and joints that i lost my MOJO......still have, but I had to complete this card for the fantastic team over at Forever Friends.

The theme over at Forever Friends Challenge this time around is 'Flowers'..........once again I was fortunate to be Guest Designer for the second time running....so thank you once again to the fantastic team for choosing me again.

The fabulous sponsor this fortnight is Michelle's Scrapbooking a great place to visit so pop on over and take a look at what's on offer.



My little card is very simple. I have used these gorgeous Spring Time papers from Forever Friends and the gorgeous little bear holding lovely daisies......the sentiment is also from Forever Friends. The frame is a die cut and i have just added ribbon and lowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.......simple but pretty.





Happy Crafting
