So cute

Am racing to make enough cards for Christmas
even though I have been making them all year I am lagging behind.
I have started helping some of the ladies at the aged care facility
to make cards and this is the one we made this month.

I have adapted it slightly to fit Merry Monday's theme 

Also sharing this with Rudolf Days Challenge.

Don't know where spring went except for a few hot days it has been
wet and very windy and so many people with allergies as the
wind has spread the pollen far and wide.

Summer starts next Thursday so hopefully the wind will abate.
Then I will be complaining of the heat.
Just cannot win can we?

Lovely to see you pop in any time.

Happy Birthday

Just popped in to share my daughters birthday card with you.

This is SW Floral Meadow that I have backed with a 
lovely green although it looks yellow there.
The border Die Namics is in silver and the flowers are SW Camellia.

This daughter has taken to colouring in just with Faber Castell pencils
so I stamped up a background stamp and gave her and this is the result.
I have made them into 4 very different cards.

This is mounted on silver which really brings the pink out

 This one has lots of smooch and stickles on it.

Am really happy with the colour combo here.

But this is the all time favorite.

Am sharing the top card with Flower  challenge

Must dash like the White Rabbit 'I'm late I'm late'.

Me use Grey...... You're Joking

This is the very first time that I have used grey on a card
and I was horrified too when I saw how dark the grey was.
However what is the use of a challenge if you don't challenge your self.
So here is the card .

and I have just seen the centre of the Poinsettia
which will probably disqualify me.
I am loving the flourish which is
Memory Box Madera Corner.
Me thinks I will be using that again.
Am sharing this with

Life is extra busy and I don't know why but at least the weather is 
supposed to stay fine over the weekend.
Hope you all have a pleasant weekend.

Special occasion

Oh we have had so much wind and wild weather
with a few hot days thrown in.
Yesterday was 26 with strong cool gusty winds.
Today 14 with showers and there was a chance of snow too.
The weather has gone mad.
It is no wonder that I have been suffering a sinus infection.

This is a card for one of those very special occasions.

This has been made entirely with Sue Wilson products.
EF Art Deco Fanfare
Dies Stockholm, and Blushing rose.
Cosmic shimmer Diamond sprinkles.
I love this as it just gives a sheen.
I have used a very pale pink card on this although it looks peach in some areas.
This is for the 
Simply paper craft - Always anything goes
Alphabet challenge blog - Use 3 ingredients.

Megan hope your weather is improving and I love you red wine card
sorry I am unable to leave a comment.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.
