Kaisercraft's Pickled Pear Cards

Good morning all.
Another week has flown by - I haven't a clue where they are going to!!! Christmas seems to be looming up with all it's associated business, but it is great to get with family at this time of year. I am looking forward to that.
I am sharing the cards today that I made with Kaisercraft's lovely Pickled Pear collection, for their Workshop Magazine, for this month. I really love this vintagey range of papers so did have fun working with it.

Would love to know your verdict on these ladies!!!
For the month of November, I have also used the same collection and made the " Miss Betsy Kit " for Artfull Crafts - that cards are all different to these ones and the kit is available at Artfull Crafts. I know you'll enjoy making it up, as I did.
Do hope you get some inspiration from seeing these.
Happy crafting or whatever you have in mind for the day and may you all know God's blessings.

A Thank You Card

Good morning ladies.

Another Arts and Plants weekend is behind us and what  a busy weekend it has been! There are so many people converge on our little village for the three days, and there is so much hype and excitement! The patchwork display is a priority, there really is such a build up all year to get projects etc completed - it is all well worth it when the lovely work is viewed by so many people and the comments are always very positive.
Well done again, to all my patchwork friends.
The weekend before last, I had the privilege of tutoring an amazing group of ladies at Timaru, making Christmas cards. I really can't understand why they needed a tutor, as you will agree when I show you the lovely thank you card, that was presented to me. Thank you so much Wilson Street Baptist ladies.

It is beautiful and someone even knows my favourite colour combination!!
The photo seems a trifle out of focus but do click on it for a clearer image. It is well worth it.
All from me today, do remember to check out Artfull Craft's competitions etc as it is always a fun time of the year there and lots of prizes can be won.
Happy crafting to all and may you know God's blessings,

Kaisercraft's Periwinkle Cards

Oh, what a beautiful morning, Oh, what a beautiful day - well ladies can you hear me singing?
It sure is a stunner here in Geraldine today, I should really be outside enjoying it but have work to do inside!! As I have just put a blog post up for Artfull Crafts, thought I would add one here as well. My daughter rang last night as she had been checking my posts and found I hadn't added one for a while and just wondered if all was well. It's great that they keep an eye on the oldies!!
Well, here are the cards I would like to share today.

This collection is Kaisercraft's lovely Periwinkle - the colours are just perfect! A very simple 5 1/4" square card. I find I am making more of this size now as they seem to be easier to embellish. Kaisercraft have brought out packs with cards and envelopes to match, for this size card. Great buy!

What would one do without Martha Stewart punches?

Don't you agree with me about the colours in the collection? Just lovely. More Martha Stewart punches, Tim Holtz Rosette die, bakers twine ( can't get enough of that!), and the resin flowers from Kaisercraft.

Lucky last!  The main shape was cut out with a Spellbinders Labels 8 die, the trellis is a Cherry Lynn die FRM115, Martha Stewart monarch butterfly punch and Kaisercraft's blooms. The seam binding was tied using my bow easy which I wouldn't be without!
Well ladies all from me today, hope you enjoy what I have to offer.
It is lovely receiving all your comments and emails and I thank you for them. I appreciate you all.

Enjoy your day, happy crafting and God bless,
