Papers - Pink Petticoat vintage rose collection Lace, ribbon, flowers as usual from stash Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to leave such lovely recent and much appreciated comments Cheers me dears :-)
Ann's beautiful Morning Glory digi fits this title a treat and I really enjoyed colouring it. I love the wording of the definition behind the flower. There are 3 different versions of this image and can be found here in the digi shop.
I used embossed dots and the lovely blue from the funky collection.
Simply finished with seam binding ribbon and a swirly peeloff.
I managed to use the lovely MS deep border punch again and of course the lovely seam binding ribbon.
Papers from my leftover stash - one unknown, the plain from Crafty Ann's digi shop
The corner peel-offs are the leftovers - the first time I've managed to do this - tis a good job I've not thrown out many of my used sheets...got loads I could do this with, lol
Hello peeps :-)
A quick post of a card made for a friend of youngest g/son whom he met on holiday last year and keeps in touch with on XBox.
As you might guess he is a Magpie fan - not the most exciting card but I have been assured he will appreciate it.
An attempt at doing a larger piece in parchment and maybe a bit too ambitious for a beginner, methinks..... it took me an age....gave me a headache.....but am pleased with the result.....just hope the recipient is too.
I used Crafty Ann's fan digi from her new Oriental Collection as the pattern for the blades.
The BP is from Crafty Ann's funky collection 3 and digitally added the corner spray and sentiment.
I was worried about sticking the fan on to the card and making a mess....no problem with paper but parchment.......? ...a challenge but I got there in the end.
The small punched flowers with a pearl in the centre are representing the cherry blossom along with a blossom from Wild Orchid.
Any tips on PC will be greatly appreciated......I missed a local beginners workshop by a couple of weeks but will be enrolling for the next one....just hope it is sooooon...in the meantime I'll just keep practicing

......I like sketch challenges.....and I like spring....so a perfect challenge
Here is my interpretation of the sketch and theme. For my birthday my daughter got some tools to start me off with parchment craft and as I was itching to practice I have done something for the challenge.
I also had some gorgeous handmade cards.....thank you so much dear bloggy friends :-)
I used Ann's short petal flower and leaves as a template.....it reminds me of one of the hellebores just coming into flower in my garden.
I fixed it to a mat from the mottled stone collection 4 - this is layered on to some silver .mirri. The main BP is one of the funky collection 2.
The border on the other piece of parchment is an adaptation of a free border I found on the net. I am very pleased that some of Ann's digi's can be used for parchment craft.
