Tea Break Collection

Good morning to all my blog friends. Do trust you are all well and happy.

As we have had quite a traumatic time here over the past couple of weeks, I have been unable to get to my computer to put up a new post. Sorry ladies for the delay. Back to normal now, I hope!

Today I would like to share some cards that have been published in Kaisercraft's Workshop Magazine for the month of November. Tea Break is quite a fun retro collection with rather unusual colour combinations. What are your thoughts ladies?

This card is made using Fiskars Advantedge punch system. On my last visit to Australia, with a bit of "persuasive talking" from Stephen Kaiser,  Fiskars  decided to sponsor me - now isn't that exciting! Since receiving the box of goodies, I have been enjoying trying out all their systems and punches etc. Thank you Fiskars.

The base of this card has been patchworked using various papers form the 6 X 6" pad. A great way to use up scraps.

That's it today ladies - must go and catch up with some work around here. Over the past week we have just about lived in our car, doing an awful lot of travelling, so it is lovely to just have a day at home to recuperate.

Happy crafting to you all, enjoy what you are doing and God bless,

Kaisercraft's Hidden Treasure Cards

Greetings again, at the beginning of another week.

A very busy week is ahead of us but I must add to the blog before we get swamped!  It is the busiest weekend of the year coming up for our little town - it really does come to life! Just hope the weather holds, as most of the stalls etc are in the domain and it can get a bit uncomfortable, if wet. We also have our usual patchwork display with quilts etc, that have been made over the year. Some stunning work has been completed again, this year.

Now I must share another collection, that I did, for the Kaisercraft Workshop Magazine for October. It is Hidden Treasures. Navy and mustard would be the dominant colours in this range. I think it is lovely. Love to know your thoughts.

Thank you all so much for taking the time to check this out and for your emails and comments. Again, I do appreciate you all and do hope you get some ideas for your cards, from what I show here.

Happy crafting to you all, enjoy what you are doing wherever you are.

God bless,

Kaisercraft's Take Note Cards

Greetings ladies from beautiful South Canterbury, New Zealand. Spring has sure sprung, and what a fabulous day it is.

Today I am sharing with you some cards I made for the Kaisercraft Workshop Magazine, for October.
It is the Take Note collection which has been very popular and I did enjoy making these cards. Hope you enjoy seeing them! Again plenty of sepia ink round the edges, I love the aged look.

Short and sweet today - I have a binding to attach to a quilt which I have made for my grand daughter. We are having a patchwork exhibition here over the next week, hence the hurry to complete the quilt.

A lovely day was had by all, at Timaru, on Saturday, with a great group of ladies.Thank you all so much for the opportunity to be with you. I did enjoy myself - just coming for the afternoon tea was well worth it!!

Do keep checking on Artfull Crafts blog - there is some exciting things happening there, this month.

Enjoy your day whatever you are doing, happy crafting and may God bless you all.
