Winter is upon us!!

Well ladies, haven't we been having some cold weather the past few days? Makes one really look forward to Spring, doesn't it.
Apart from the weather, I have had a lovely weekend as I was tutoring some very special ladies in Christchurch. Thank you all so much for having me at your place - loved every minute of it and do hope I was able to leave you all with some worthwhile tips. I got home safely on Monday and I must admit I was very pleased, after quite a slow trip. As I have said before, I'm not all that fond of snow!

Now I must put up a couple of new cards.

This first card was made for a very special friend who has reached 90years young - and she truly is! This was made with " Blae and Ivy" collection which is from Kaisercraft. It is one of my many favorites, of course as well as Kaisercraft!! The large flower is made using Kaisercraft paper flowers, crushing them up after putting them together with a brad and them spraying with glimmer-mist. I love this look. The sentiment is one of their rub-ons which are very handy.

Card number two was made for one of my grand-daughters, Jade. Artfull Crafts very kindly gave me a Grand Calibur, as a thank you ( I'm not sure what for!!) and I am having a lot of fun with it. I love shaped cards, I love Lemon Flower Stack papers and I love Tilda!! So it really is a wonderful combination, wouldn't you agree! My copics were used to colour Tilda which of course is a Magnolia stamp.

Well that's all for now, hope you are all keeping warm.
You may find it is easier to leave a comment now, as Liz has kindly opened it up for me. Do love your comments, makes blogging all worthwhile!

May you know God's blessing,
