Although I haven't blogged for a while, I have been making cards, but some I can't really show you yet. Jill at Cardinal Colours has asked me to demonstrate some cards at her shop next Wednesday showing embossing, glitter, decoupage and stamping, so I've been preparing the cards. I don't think I should show you yet, do you? But I promise I will after I've done the demonstration (provided I survive!!).
However I have done some things I can show you. My friends Linda (see her blog at Linda's Cards and Pages) and Lynn (A Moment in Time) who run Scrapology asked me to be a guest DT for month of April so I proudly prepared a page which has still to be shown. A week later I received an email from Linda asking me if I wanted to try a challenge from Quixotic Paperie using charms, so I did. I was very pleased with my layout and finished it quite quickly. I emailed it off to Linda asking if it was OK. Linda came back straight away saying it was fine but could I stand it up and take a picture so it didn't look like a layout!!!! I emailed back saying wasn't it meant to be a layout and ......... no, it should have been a card! Ooops! Still I've now got an additional layout I hadn't been planning to do. And this is the layout I shouldn't have done!! Its a picture of my grand daughter at the Bluebell Walk in Arlington.
Anyway when I went to our crop that weekend Lynn very kindly gave me some more charms (I'd used them all up on my layout!!) and so I made these two cards for Linda's challenge!!
Both the cards used decoupage from the Crafter's Companion Flower Fairy CDs with their backing paper. The butterfly charms on the above card actually were from a pair of earrings and necklace I had bought a while ago and couldn't wear them.
These are the two charms Lynn kindly gave me.
Thank you for looking. x
