Beautiful day - summer is here!!

I see it is a week since I last blogged, so here we are again. What a fabulous day it has been today - it really does feel like Spring is here and I do hope it is here to stay!
It has been patchworking today and I do enjoy the time spent with my friends. I am busy working on a wallhanging, almost completed so my brain is busy working out what to do next!! This weekend it is Craft Creators, so all day Friday and Saturday I will be tutoring cards, now there's a change for you!!
Here are some more cards I have been busy making.

This card was made for my grandaughter Danielle, very much a teenager. She has legs about as long as this girl on the card, which is a photo I managed to get off the computer. She's delightful and we love her dearly. The roses I made using Cherry Lyne rose die - they are so easy to make and I think they are lovely. The punched border was made using a Martha Stewart punch and my bow easy was used to tie the double bow.It was made for me by a special friend's husband - thank you Noel.

I have used the lovely Blae and Ivy papers by Kaisercraft for this card. The colours in the collection are absolutely lovely. Another Cherry Lyne die was used for the trellis background, Martha Stewart punch for the borders, and Spellbinders Label die for the label. A Kaiser rub-on sentiment.What would we do without KAISERCRAFT!!

The last card is made with Pink Geleto, again from Kaisercraft - anyone would think I am promoting Kaiser, wouldn't they!! A recessed window card with a photo off the web - I do spend a considerable amount of time on the computer, as no doubt you have already guessed. There are some very clever ladies out there in blogland, as well as an awful lot of resources.

Well ladies, thank you all for checking this out - do hope you have had a lovely day where you are. Also thank you for all the kind comments. I do appreciate you all.

God bless each and every one of you,
