Anniversary Card AAA card #93 challenge

While we were away on holiday it was our 27th wedding anniversary which we spent in Verona .But here is the card I made for my husband - hope you like it
It was made with a clearly Besotted set which I bought second hand - I love this CaS style card -even though I say so myself I was very pleased with the finished card.

I thought I would enter this in the latest AAA Challenge #93-Words have Power as the words on the heart are "I Love you "

please feel free to comment - feed back is great........

a post at last

            Sorry for not posting for a while - but been on an amazing holiday to Italy and 2 Balls and end of tennis match season bash which all lead to me getting a flu bug - so no posts to the blog for quite a while ............ Italy was stunning we did a whistle stop trip over 17 days Rome ,Florence ,Tuscany driving around ,Florence (again ) Verona and Venice .
           We had only been back 8 days when we went to Magdalene Cambridge Ball - a white tie event where the dress code for ladies was long dresses and ideally opera gloves though not essential !!!!! really was 33 degrees C ... this ball is amazing as its Champagne all night (literally ) and it finishes at 6am with a survivors photos on the river Cam...then flew home after a few hours sleep to get ready for another Ball locally to where we live !!! Some social whirl thats for sure .....Back to normality now

Mess but fun

This is a birthday card for my husbands goddaughter  - Shes a History of Art student at university . I used several Stampin Up sets - then added some random brushos - I also used foil around the butterfly but it does not show up in the photo but added some lovely shine and depth
- A bit of a mash up but I really liked the end result ( Am I allowed to say that !


this was a lovely haul from Simon Says Stamp - just a few treats - now I need to get on and make some cards and play with all this lovely stuff .It actually arrived a few weeks ago but been so busy hence no blogging for a while......... And now I'm about to go on holiday ......but hopefully I will get a few cards made first -watch this space

I started to write this post but the dreadful bombing and loss of innocent lives happened in Manchester- feeling sorry ,tearful  and anger .

Thank You Card

Rubber Stamp Tapestry

Whatever next 2 cards posted in one day ! But no challenge - I needed a quick thank you card for a friend - so I managed to find these peg stamps - I had forgotten how pretty they are .But my camera which is very old was playing up so the photos aren't that great - well I'm blaming the camera and not my photography skills or the card -lol,

Cas Colours and Sketches #220 - 70th birthday

Ok - its true I have become challenge addicted ! Sorry here's another one ,I had a 70th card to make - and was struggling a bit because this lady was one of triplets and one of her sisters died quite recently so her birthday will be a mixed feeling I suspect -so searching for inspiration I had seen this challenge earlier and my card pal Jenny suggested Cas Colours and Sketches - so without ado here's the card

Casology #Season -246

Every week I check out Casology and add amazing cards to my pinterest board - so this weeks challenge was interesting ummmmm ! What does Season mean to me - I happened to have the tennis on TV and I had a quirky light bulb moment - season means changing sport -the beginning of spring means the start of the Golf season ( with the Masters on TV ) and summer is Wimbledon and Tennis , Autumn is beginning of Rugby and Winter is skiing .....So with that in mind here's my card.
It was coloured with a mixture of inkintense and watercoloured pencils -I haven't decided whether I will use it as a Fathers Day card or A male Happy Birthday- hence no sentiment at the moment .I will enter this in the Casology Challenge -Season .thank you for looking
