No it's not Christmas yet!

I thought I should add some more of last year's cards so these are some easy Christmas ones I made during the year but I didn't manage to send many out!  Maybe this year.

Cards from 2016

I've been challenged to add some more of my cards.....  These are some of my favourites from last year.

Sometimes you just need the right inspiration to get up and do something immediately.  That happened when I saw Lin's card.  I embossed one piece of 'wood' patterned paper and also a piece of what that had had some ink swiped over it.  I sanded the 'wood' piece and inked the other with a coordinated colour (the yellow).  I finished the lighter card with some other patterned paper, stamped on the reverse of a label from some washi tape and some ribbon from a the label of a top I bought recently.


 Thanks, Lin.  Looks like you managed to get me blogging again, too!

CAS(E) this Sketch #44

So, it's been a while.....

I made this card yesterday and today realised it fits the challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch #44 which I had seen the night before making the card.

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger: Ready for Red

When I saw the photo prompt last week I decided it was one I'd like to use and although I missed the deadline to enter the comp it was fun to do.

Update and a couple of challenges

Wow, it's been ages since I posted here!!

We have become grandparents again, to Chloe Jade, born 30 August to Erica and Dave, and celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary yesterday.

I've just completed some cards for a friend and thought I should add some here.

This one was made using the sketch challenge 209, from clean &simple stamping.  I loved it so much I made a few others as well.

Using pti packaging
 I seem to have given my Epic6 a real workout with all the embossing I've done lately!

It seems that I have been seeing so many gorgeous cards with butterflies lately so my Pinterest page is full of them!  I saw a simply stunning card here and had to make my own version.
The new challenges for May are now up on the Chook Scraps forum.  I made a card last night for one of the card challenges and the non-sketch challenges have even had me thinking about what photos I could use!
