Another Two Cards

Well ladies here we are again - sorry we're not very regular but time does seem to slip away at an alarming rate! The past few weekends we have enjoyed having our lovely families stay with us, as well as having the Arts and Plants weekend. I had my other hat on for this as I am involved with the patch work show. Again another very success exhibition. To add to the excitement we have just welcomed another stunning little great grand boy over the weekend, so we are looking forward to heading South to see the newest addition to our family. Finding it hard to exercise patience!!

For your viewing today I thought I would add another couple of cards which I have recently made. Enjoy the show ladies!

My, I do love these Spellbinder's 3D  Die and I must say it sure makes a hit with everyone who sees the cards. It really is stunning and I so enjoy working with them. As a warning, you may get sick of seeing these cards!! This morning I have just put together another three of them, all orders. 49 and Market papers and flowers have been used here.

The collection I have used for this card is perhaps my favourite at the moment. The green is so fresh. Mintay, Secret Place is the name of the collection. A very simply made 5 1/4" square card.for an order. Do hope Judith enjoyed her card and had a wonderful birthday.

Thanks again ladies for checking this blog out, I do appreciate you all and your patience with me. Do trust you are all well and enjoying accomplishing what you set out to do. With much love until next time and many blessings.

Back In Production!

Good morning to all you lovely ladies and what a beautiful morning it is. It's great to be in touch again after a few weeks of silence, but I have been so busy with various engagements that time has just flown. Weekend before last we had our patchwork camp and it was so lovely being with a fabulous group of friends ( I did manage to complete what I set out to do, so that was a bonus.) I am receiving a block of the month from America and the months had caught up on me, so was great to get the ones I had on hand completed. Last Saturday we had our card making day at Ashburton - again an enjoyable day with like minded ladies.

Today I am going to share another couple of cards that I have recently made.

This is one of my recently acquired dies and I absolutely love it!!  Spellbinders's Grand Cabinet 3D die, S6-139, designed by Becca Feeken. It certainly makes a WOW card. The orders are coming in thick and fast for this card or similar. Rose gold mirror card was used to cut this out as it needs a reasonably heavy card stock. It was made for my special patchwork friend Eileen -and she loved it.

A very special card this time made for our lovely grand daughter Ella who has reached the grand old age of 20. For this card I have used the stunning Mintay Collection, called Secret Place. It is a gorgeous range and I so love the colours as it is very fresh. The door was cut from the collection and our beautiful Ella's photo was put behind. It was a lot of fun to make. Do click on the photo for a clearer viewing.

Our big weekend here at Geraldine is coming up in a fortnight and as I am involved with the Patchwork Group it will be rather busy. We have a display of our quilts etc that we have made over the year which seems to have quite a following. Have yet to complete one when it arrives back from my special friend Ali, who is quilting it for me on her big machine. Should keep my out of mischief for a few days.

Thanks so much for stopping by, trust you are all enjoying good health and whatever you are keeping busy with. With special blessings to you all.
