Good morning dear blog friends.
I am sorry but I didn't manage to get to the craftroom again. My grandson is full of beans and I get so tired that when he leaves with mum or dad, I normally sit on the sofa and nod off within 10mins...LOL!
Anyway, it is not a waste of another day, I have some beautiful cards to show you that were sent to me some time ago. I was waiting for the right time to showcase them and then, unfortunately, I became ill and they have sat on my laptop just waiting.
The lovely Christine Harrop created these cards and I think you will all agree with me she definitely has an eye for layout and a lovely style indeed.
No. 1 is made using the largest motif from the Damask Motifs and Accents sets of Spellbinders dies. This is such a delicate and pretty card. This is a 'Me' card.
No.2 is (I believe) Labels one with Martha Stewart punch for the borders. The background looks like the new M-bossibilities design, but I am not sure. Christine you will have to help us here, is it letterpress effect with inks or a printed paper. Whichever, it is beautiful.
No.3 is ........just gorgeous!! Forget which dies have been used, I just love the whole thing.... and what a fabulous colour. Christine this is so elegant and the delicacy of the backing paper is beautiful and perfect for a Wedding Anniversary.
No.4 is a CAS (clean & simple) card and what a stunner it is. I love the flourish diecut used here, it is also very delicate and in no way overpowers the design or layout.
All in all I think you will agree, Christine has a created four different cards that show us the versatility of using diecuts. They don't always have to be big central pieces, sometimes delicate smaller pieces are ample.
Thank you Christine, for letting me showcase your work. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to do so. I hope you will let me show more for you as you find time to send them.
Well that's it today, except again, to say a big THANK YOU to everyone for all the words of comfort and best wishes, I have been completed blown away by the amount of care shown to me and it still brings a tear to my eye. You are all so truly generous of spirit.
Tomorrow I hope (again) to have a card for you but I will definitely have two wonderful cards to show you that I received in the post yesterday (Carole and Jenny you are stars and the cards are amazing!! They are already up in the craftroom on my wall of fame.)
Have a good day dearest blog friends. Keep smiling and keep crafting.
Hugs and best wishes Linda xx
