Two New Cards!!

As I add this post, I am feeling rather ashamed of myself for not having been in touch before now but Mondays seem to have been very busy lately. No excuse I know, but thank you all for not having given up on me. To be very honest, I have been totally obsessed with my patchwork and have just spent another weekend with my patchwork friends. A fabulous time was had and I did accomplish quite a bit. Will share at a later date ladies.

Today I thought I would showcase a couple of cards which I have recently made. Yes, I am still making cards on the sideline! Hope you enjoy the viewing .

I really enjoy putting these 3D cards together and the response to them is amazing. Becca Feeken excelled when she designed these dies - just fabulous. For those of you who are interested, they are Spellbinder's Dies, The main card is S6-136 and for the insert happy birthday, S5-345. I do hope Jean liked her birthday card and had a wonderful birthday.

The next one was made for our super cute grandson. I have been thinking of all the cards I have made for him over the years and all the various images used. This year was snow boarding as you can no doubt guess. It is called a Kite card, very simply made and it folds flat for posting. If wanting to make this card, Sam, at Mixed-Up Crafts  has a You Tube which is very easily followed. Do click on the photos to get a clearer image - think I may need to renew my glasses as things are looking a bit blurry.

Well thanks so much for sticking with me, I will try and do better in the future! We have a beautiful day here, which we are really enjoying after a rather heavy frost. My husband has gone to a bull sale today ( once a farmer always a farmer!!) and I have reneged, so all's peaceful here. Maybe I'll get a bit more quilting done!

Trust all are well and dodging all the bugs that are floating round at the moment. Happy crafting ladies until next time and may you all know God's blessings.

"This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it," this verse just came to mind!
