Summer floral


Today I am show casing my Summer card 
made using Crealies Create-a-card no CCAC 07
It creates this beautifully shaped card.
 I used pretty pink card with a lovely lacy pattern
 and added Crealies die cut flowers and butterflies
to different sections on the card.
    A sentiment and organza ribbon finished it off perfectly.

I used the following Crealies items.

Crealies Create A Card stans no. 7 / Crealies Create A Card die no. 7


I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

What a poser!


My son and granddaughter have been staying with us for the week. My granddaughter loves to do her Catwalk pose for camera shots. We had a busy week and I now need a holiday to get over it! 
On a day out, my husband and granddaughter had got ahead while I was lagging a bit behind walking with the aid of my stick. Noticing I was getting further away from them, my granddaughter shouted back at me " Nanny I wish you were not so old so you could walk quicker"
Don't you just love them to bits.

Penny Black and SU


I recently won a huge parcel of SU goodies and this is the first card I have made using some of the papers in the stash. The paper is lovely to work with as it has a substantial weight to it ( thin card really ). The colours are rich and gorgeous too.
The Penny black stamp I used is one of my favourite stamps.  She looks so cute on her Bicycle.
A quick reminder too that it is midway of the Penny Black and More challenge this month. A nice and easy "Anything goes" challenge. Remember to use a stamped image (no digis allowed) and not a sentiment for your main image. Pop over to the blog to see the lovely work made by the PB DT.

For my card I used pretty Lilac card with a small floral print.
I stamped the edge of the circle stamp in lilac ink
along the edge of white card. I then cut out the stamped border
and added it to the edges of my card.
I die cut two coloured circles and my image and
added them to the centre of the card.
The embellishments of flowers, leaves, butterflies,
pearls and a sentiment were added to finish off the card.

Summer daisies


Another month and another challenge at Penny Black and More. The theme is Anything goes. A nice easy one for you all and this month I made a nice and easy card as you can see. I  used purple, turquoise and white together as they are one of my  favourite colour combination.  I love the die cut, I think it looks like a trellis. I added some pearls and a sentiment for a bit of dimension and there you have it. If you want to see the beautiful creations from the DT and check out the rules pop over to the blog using the link above.
Happy crafting.

Dressing Up


I haven't used this Penny Black image for a long while and she is so cute. Many of us will recall dressing up and having fun clip clopping around in high heeled shoes. This image reminds me of those times so this card is to celebrate childhood fun which sadly many children miss out on these days.
This bright and cheerful card is for this month's challenge at Penny Black and More which is Dies and Punches.
There are several prizes up for grabs and the sponsors are Penny Black, FlonzCraft, Nicecrane, Marianne Designs and Craft Bag. If you want to be in with a chance of winning something crafty pop over to the PB blog to check out the details.
I used Marianne flower dies and a Fiskars  floral border punch. The flowers dies have been gathering dust for years and the pretty floral punched shape is from a set of three dies which I used for the first time although I have had them a while.
