Vintage Wedding

Hi Crafters,

I'm popping in today to share a card for the challenge at Frilly & Funky - 3 is Not a Crowd.
I have included 3 flowers and 3 pearls in a group on this vintage wedding card to qualify for the challenge.


Recipe
Patterned Papers - Anna Marie Designs
Tonic Studio Veranda Die
Joy Crafts 6002/0172 Corner Die
Cottage Cutz Wedding bells Die

Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

I'd also like to enter these challenges:
Noor Designs - #38 ATG
Unicorn Challenge - #28 ATG

It's been very windy throughout the night and in to this morning but not as bad as some have had it on the West coast and further up in the North. Things have been flying around in the garden which I thought were secure so several trips to pick up stray plant pots etc, I've decided to lay the wooden bird table down on the grass as I don't think it will take another battering. I hope you are all ok where you are.
See you soon,

Lorraine

For Mum...

Hi Crafters,

This was the Christmas card that I made for my mum this year, she loves poinsettias and has quite green fingers when keeping them successfully from one year to the next.



I thought I'd make an easel card to show off this lovely Craft Creations decoupage image.
I layered the tartan paper from Craft Sensations on to glitter card for a beautiful sparkling border and used metallic gold card for the rest of the mats and to cut my Britannia Die sentiment. Grossgrain ribbon from stash.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #447/8 Seasonal Flowers
Crafty Creations - #357 ATG
Fussy & Fancy - #202 Christmas

Bye for now,
Lorraine

Snow Globe Trio

Hi Crafters,

Third time lucky, I've found time to pop in again today!

I'd like to enter my snow globe cards in to these challenges:

Double D Challenges - Baby It's Cold Outside





Recipe
Snow Globe Die - Hunkydory Cardmaking collection issue 2
Yvonne Creations - Holly Jolly Nesting Frame
Wplus9 Banner Die
Stampin' Up Sentiment Stamp
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder
Tonic Scalloped Square Die

As this die cuts all the elements in one go I cut it from silver mirri, glitter and white card then mixed and matched the elements to create three cards.

That's all for now,

Lorraine

Quick Male Cards

Hi Crafters,

Get me! My second post for today, that's unheard of :)

I bought this gorgeous Docrafts paper pad before Christmas called Time To Sparkle and set about creating a few designs with it.
The papers are in a black, gold and white combination with glitter and foil too, very luxurious.


Recipe
Black and Gold Time To Sparkle Papers
Tonic Studio Sentiment die

I'd like to enter this in to the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz - #185 Last Minute Christmas.


Here are a couple more designs that I made 


The Strip going across with the trees and Santa on his sleigh is a glittered ribbon and the sentiment is a Sue Wilson Die.


An Apple Blossom sentiment die teamed with a Find It Trading Christmas Ornament die.

Well that's a few more cards shared, only another couple of hundred or so to go, lol :)
How did I get this far behind? Perhaps I'd better try to stick to a New Years resolution of blogging every day to get through all the cards that I make.

We'll see about that one,
Bye for now,

Lorraine
