Tuesday 24th April

Well, still the April showers come so roll on May. I am getting more crafting time so that is one good thing, the only problem is that while I am snug in my craft room the garden is getting sorely neglected.
This card I have done using Seriff Craft Artist.  I would like to enter this for the Rainbow Lady challenge "Patriotic British"

 The picture of Queen Elizabeth is from a royalty free site that I googled

Sunday 22nd April

Twice on one week, this must be a record, well it is for me. The April showers continue so as  can't get out into my greenhouse and garden it gives me chance to play in my craft room.
This card I am entering for Crafty Anns Challenge "It's a man thing" and Sparkles Monthly Challenge "Men Only"

I have used white card, The backgroud paper is from a Joanna Sheen "William Morris" pad and it is matted onto matt gold card. The images are Jayne Netley Meyhue stamps coloured with Promarkers and the small ones glazed. The sentiment is done with the Xyron design runner, the frame is from a Cheery Lynn Die

Wednesday 18th April

Well once more it is ages since I updated my blog, message to self "You must do better". I have again been making samples so I am behind with everything. I can't add them to my blog yet as the CD has yet to be released.
After all the lovely weather we had in March, today is absolutely miserable today, it is cold windy and raining stair rods as my gran used to say, so what better excuse to I need to disappear to my craft room.
This card  am entering for Rainbow Lady "A touch of vintage" and CD Sunday "Ring a roses"

I used an 8x8 base card. The background paper was from MCS Quintessential CD as was te sentiment and topper. The edges of the card and the bottom mat were distressed with Adirondak salmon. The rose was made using a Dimensionfourth flower stamp . The flourish was made with a Cheery Lynn die.
The flower was cut from the same design as the backing paper. I decoupaged the topper and the flowers were glazed, the flowers on the cherry blossom were also glazed although unfortunately none of it shows up in the picture. The card was finished off with a lace bow.
