Love is in the air!!

Hello blogging friends. Do hope you all had a lovely weekend. We had a great day over at Fairlie, making cards of course, with a wonderful group of ladies. Thank you to Kaye for organizing the day, also to Liz for her tuition. It was a beaut day ladies.

Here is a card I made, for an order, for a friend. As the proposal was made in view of the Eiffel Tower, it had to be on the card. Now don't you reckon that's romantic!! It made me think back many years now, to the time I was proposed to - in a woolshed, skinning smelly opossums! I had no highfalutin ideas of what being married to a farmer was all about!! Anyway, I did say yes and have never regretted it.

Now back to the card. I will have to keep the papers, I have used a secret as yet, but I will say they are from Kaisercraft and absolutely lovely! Keep watching this space! It is a very simple card but I was really pleased with it. I have taken to making a lot of 5 1/4" cards lately which I think are a nice size. The main flower is again Kaiser's paper flowers, stacked up, crunched, then glimmermisted. The small roses are from Artful Crafts. They carry a great range of flowers and of course many other goodies!

My grand calibur was used to cut this card out. I can't praise it too highly! The papers are Basic Grey, Sweet Threads, and are beautiful colours. Kaiser flowers and sparklets add to the card, and the Cherry Lynn Flourish die for cutting out the flourish - it is so lovely and fine. Do hope Janis is happy with her card!

Well blessings to you all, catch you again soon,



  1. Love that paper on your first card Betsy! You are certainly making good use of your Grand Calibur. Well done on your beautiful cards.

  2. As a daughter of Betsy I can testify that once she got her man she never set her eyes on the woodshed, or on an opossum, again!!...actually that is not true - she provided many a meal for very grateful shearing gangs. She is a very good cook as well as card maker... xxx

  3. Thanks Shells, No wonder I love you so much.Bets XXX
