Make It Monday #80

 Finally got this weeks Make It Monday card done. The challenge was to make your own garland. I used the ticket border die and added some flowers to the little tickets. I'll add a sentiment later.
These garlands are easy to make and a great alternative to a banner if you don't have a banner die.
Thanks for looking!

Retro Sketch #26

 For Retro Sketch Challenge #26. A pretty simple sketch (posted below) but I had some trouble with my card after I embossed it. I didn't want to lay flat so I backed it with some cardstock on the inside which helped a lot. Thanks for looking!

Case Study #105

This week's Case Study Challenge was to case a card of one of their players. I chose Maureen and her beautiful card posted below.
I love her flower border and the colours she chose. I didn't have exactly the right colours for my card so I switched things up a bit. Thanks for looking!

Colour Q 151

 This weeks Colour Q card. Colours are at the bottom of this post. Kind of a summer/fall combination.

Make It Monday #79

 Here's my card for Make It Monday #79 using fabric die cuts. The Teapot, Fillable Frames #1 and Flower are all fabric die cuts. I stamped the Teapot onto some die cut beige fabric.
Here's a closer look at the Teapot. I'd never stamped on fabric before. Thanks for looking.

Make It Monday #78

 For Papertrey Make It Monday #78 stitching on die cuts. The leaves were pretty easy as there was a line down the centre of each one to follow with the stitching. I decided to try some French Knots, something that I haven't done in decades. I like how the bottom flower turned out better than the larger one. Less busy. I used three stands of thread for the small flower and six strands for the larger one. Thanks for looking!

Another Make it Monday #76 Card

I needed a Wedding card and had these bits and pieces, including the card base, left over from the
Make It Monday challenge this week. The Kraft card base is bleach stamped and so are the flowers. Its actually almost the same as my other MIM card, just different colours. I hope its not too plain for a Wedding card.
Thanks for looking!

Colour Q 148

 For this weeks Colour Q challenge. Nice bright sunny colours to go with the weather. Hope its sunny where you are too. Thanks for looking!
