Hi everyone,

It has got around to another challenge at Fussy and Fancy !  This challenge is hosted by Pat K

The theme is entitled 'Pastel Colours'  and we are sponsored byPaper Shelter

I used the Sponsor's image and used the coloured version.  Actually it is a lovely and versatile Vintage teacup image.  There is lots of sparkle and glossy accents to give the effect of china.

The  lovely embellishments from my stash.

I do hope you have time to pop over and take a look at the very talented Design Team's work on the Fussy and Fancy  blog.  It is a fabulous Challenge, it would be great if you could join in.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!

Hi everyone,

This was part of an easel card Imade some time ago and which I recently took to pieces and made two Gift bags from.

The die is a JOY die from Noor Designs UK and the flowers are from Live and Love Crafts.  Everything else is from my stash.  I think the papers could be from a Prima pad.  I am really enjoying using up old papers and stash.

As always, thanks for looking,

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card I made to share which I made for a friend's special zero birthday.  She will have received it by now so am able to post it on here.

Again, I used up some old Magnolia papers, and also another image from Cardmaker's Delights.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts/Live and Love Crafts and the rest is from my stash.  The die is a Joy border die available from Noor Designs UK.

Thanks for looking

Hi everyone,

Yes, here we have another Vintagey style card, and yes I have still been deliving into my stash papers and the lovely images from Cardmaker's Delights.

There is not a lot to say about this card to be honest, as usually is the case the flowers are from Live and Love Crafts/Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks for looking

Hi everyone,

I am here today with another card I have been asked to make.  This time it is  an Easter card.  Well, I do not usually make Easter cards and yellow is not a colour I use often so this was a tricky one for me.  That was until I remembered the Seed Packet images from Cardmaker's Delights.  Well, that was my starting point, then I delved into my stash and the rest is history.  I am really enjoying using up my stash at the moment.  I dug out a pile of old papers and they are actually starting to go down now.  Such a lovely feeling.  Once they are gone THEN I can buy more!  What a great incentive eh! lol

Thanks for looking,

Hi everyone

Well, I have only just got this card photographed, so we are on to up to date makes now.

I started making this card,got the basic layout done, and you know the feeling, I just did not like it at all.  I went to bed that night feeling so dejected.  The following day I had to really make myself continue.  But once I had got all the embellishments on with the lace, flowers and pearls, well it looks different altogether and it has transformed it into something I am quite pleased with.  This just goes to show we should reserve judgement til the end!  I could very easily have shown it the bin and now I am pleased I did not.

This is very much a card made from scraps and stash which makes it even more pleasing for me.  I just love using up scraps as a lot of you know.

Thanks for looking

Hi everyone,

I am here today with a card which I made for my Mum to give to a friend of hers for her 90th birthday.  I was asked to put numbers on this card.  I find this really hard to do to be honest, and my personal feelings are that it can bring a design down and sometimes make it a bit tacky.  That is just my own view, whereas I know most people like to see numbers on a card.   SoI had a bit of a dilema, then I remembered I had some number charms.  Well they were my saviour.

I used this lovely Vintagey postcard topper from Cardmaker's Delights and then delved into my stash.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts/Live and Love Crafts.

Thank you for looking, and a very Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow.

Hi everyone

I am here tonight to share a care I made last August.  I am gradually getting through my oldie makes, in fact I think this is about it.

I loved making this card using this smashing image from Liveand Love Crafts.  I suspect the papers will be from there too but I honestly can not remember.

We have Cheery Lynn die-cuts peeping through at the top corner and anassortment of flowers and lace from my stash.

Thank you so much for looking,
