Hi Everyone,

I am back from a lovely week's holiday at Lake Garda (Italy) and all raring to get crafting again.  I breathed a sigh of relief to see my scheduled posts had worked ok for the given dates.

I have a card to share which I made a little while ago which I would like to enter into the Challenge at Cheery Lynn  which is entitled 'Die-cut Flowers'  It basically consists of a square card with a diagonal pocket inside which houses a bookmark which is decorated on both sides.

I had such fun playing with an assortment of Cheery Lynn dies making this card.  You will see there are border dies, Flowers, leaves and butterflies, flourishes and part doiley and heart dies too.  There is a lot going on on this card but it really is predominently made of Cheery Lynn dies.  I loved making the flowers which are inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink.  A lot of work but so rewarding.

  2. So awesome, I love seeing you create it! Awesome!

  3. Hi Judy, bet you could have stayed in Italy another week.
    Love your card hun. Those dies are super, fab flowers and love the centres and of course it's pink, my fave.
    I've tried scheduling a couple of times and it hasn't worked for me so I must be doing something wrong.
    Hugs Sue W.
