Multi folds

Well thank goodness I had this one already made !!! Isabella had her immunisations this week and reacted badly so I have been sat cuddling her all week !! I am now fed up of daytime TV !!! roll on next week when I can get card making again !

It was my turn to set the challenge this week for the Christmas gang and it was more than two folds .......... I used a prefolded card with a LOTV image and a computer generated greeting. I left it plain and simple as I felt it really didn't need much more on it !

Have a great weekend, leaving Chris at home with the baby and I get to take my eldest bowling for her birthday today ........... great !!! Not sure who got the short straw !!! hehe !!
Happy crafting

You have the key to my heart.

Wow another week has breezed by !!! Half term too so its been a a busy busy one !!!
This week at C4E the challenge is to use a lock and key on your creation ! I used them as charms on my card. The papers are from a pad called Spring Fiesta .............. I am just loving it !! Image is a LOTV one. I used a Spellbinder die to create the border (its the square die and I cut it into pieces to make the effect of a border punch !! I also used the die behind the image but on an angle. The paper really sets this card off so it didn't really want too much fuss adding !!!

Well best go as I am off visitng friends today and have a long drive ........ I hope there is no snow due today !
Happy crafting everyone

Snowflake, snowflake come down from the sky and flutter on by ........

Hehe well we may have had enough of the snow this week !!! Our Christmas card club challenge is "Snowflake" so I got out my snowflake Christmas dec's, my snowflake paper and charms ............. This little girl is looking out the window for the snow ........ I just love the holly swirl die cut, its a Cheery Lynn die and just so scrummy !!! The snowflake charm is hung from the white snowflake so it has movement, I tried to hang it from the bow but it just didn't work !!!

If anyone would like to join us getting our cards ready for Christmas them just email anyone from the gang, you can find us all on the sidebar !!!

With love ....

This week at C4E the challenge is a sketch (as below). Well ............. this one really did make me think. The rectangle across the card got me stumped. In fact I ended up with a headache after making it !!!

I used a LOTV image and the papers are by Nitwits, border is a Martha Stewart deep punch and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I just had to use my new purchase the spellbinder die; Circle of hearts. However having said that the  stamp I used to make the rectangle is VERY old and never used till now !!! Its PSX stamp of a definition of love, a  lovely stamp that will get used more I know !

Pop over to the C4E website and check out the rest of the DT cards, they are lovely !!!
Happy crafting !!!
