Monday morning is here again

Good Monday Morning to you all,
Thank you all again for the wonderful comments you have left for me recently.  I was thrilled to see that you enjoyed the CAS cards as much as I enjoyed making them.
Well, tidying is underway at home, but there is a long way to go to make it easier for me yet.  I am confident we will get there.   One good thing came out of my need to tidy and that is that my daughter ended up with 3pairs of Jeans that I was going to give to charity.  Jeans are a no-no for someone with my spinal problems as they put too much pressure on the back, so I had a few pairs that were like new just sat in the wardrobe.  I used to be alot slimmer than I am now so they were small enough to fit my daughter, who is 6ft and slim.  I was a bit green for approx ten seconds and then my sensibility took over and I was just glad she could make use of them (luckily she and I like similar jeans -bootcut or flared). LOL!! 
I am sorry to say, I have been too busy to make a card to show today, but it is not a bad thing as it gives me the opportunity to do a Showcase instead.

Todays Showcase is the lovely, Christine Hussey and she has created some stunners;  take a look:-

This is fabulous and I think with snowflakes in the corners it would make a wonderful Christmas card.  The embossed background really sets off the white diecuts and adds lots of lovely texture.

 This is so unusual in its colour scheme and very modern.  I adore the  Spellbinders flower centers used as flowers themselves, they are just the right size for this layout and everything about it says classy!

A very stylish inside to the card and using the 'waste' pieces from the border diecuts is inspired and I think the shapes give the card a Moroccan feel (especially with these colours).

I fell in love with this one the instant I downloaded it as Christine has used one of my favourite manufacturers,  My Minds Eye.  This particular paper is from one of my all time favourite sets by MME too.  Plus, anything with butterflies on and I am happy.

Well there you have it, some beautiful cards with a variety of styles and colour schemes.  I think you will agree with me, Christine has done a wonderful job with these and I, for one, can't wait to see what comes next.

Thank you so much Christine for letting me showcase these on my blog.   I hope you have enjoyed seeing them here.  Maybe one day you could do a blog of your own and then we can all come and follow you!
Have a great day all.  Hugs Linda xx

  4. Hi Linda,
    what wonderful cards they are all so very different. Just love the butterfly die used. Thank you Linda for showing them and thank you Christine for sharing them with us. Well dear lady I've taken a leaf out of your book and de cluttered my craft room.
    Thank you for the inspiration to do this as I now have far more room in my craft room. Yippee, and it looks better for when my family visit form your neck of the woods. Have a great sunny crafty day everyone.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L

  11. I know what you mean about jeans! It's elastic waists for me now, I had a fractured sacrum and severe soft tissue and nerve damage. That's what you get for being thrown of a bucking horse, but every day I am greatful I can still walk (well soft of limp and hobble!) I hope you are not too upset with your daughter making the most of your unused garments - could be worse, my daughter has her hands on my crafting items LOL!!!

    big hugs Vicky x x x
