HIYA, It does not seem like a week ago that i posted that i was off work for two weeks and here we are nearly one week gone!! been out and about a little craft shopping here and there on the way on my journeys, also done a little Xmas shopping...
Had time to make a few cards , here is one of them...this is my DT card for C.R.A.F.T. challenge our theme this week is "Fancy floral"




Our sponsor this week is die cut dreams

Rainy day time to play!!!


Evening to all, wow is it raining where you are... never stopped all day, but that means stay in doors and do some card making..lol and that's just what i have done.
This card is for my sisters MIL, which she just told me today, she would like a card made for Friday, thought best to get it done and finished.
I have used some new papers i have just bought yesterday while out and about, they are paper mania, flowers have been embossed and then coloured with ink. Images i have had these stamps along time now but come in very useful for a lady's Birthday!
I thought i may as well add this card to a few challenge, but i think it's hard to find the challenges to fit the card, i like it the other way round, choose the challenge then make the card!
Incy wincy designs......anything goes
Wild orchard crafts........ribbon and bows
abc challenge.......E for easel
If the shoe fits.....Flowers
Fab N Funky....black N white + 1

Thanks for stopping by again.....Hope you pop back again tomrrow for my DT card fror Craft challenge oh and not forgetting BIRTHDAY celebraton over at Craftycatz on Friday, i have a prize to give away too.
Hugs carol x
