Checking in

Hi there, what a gorgeous day today.  It started when the dog woke me early, and when I let him outside the birdsong which greeted me was wonderful, but deafening!  It's amazing what nature you can hear before the morning commute comes whizzing past.

Here are a couple of cards to show - for no particular challenges.  I just thought I would post, as I have not done so for a while.  Happy crafting! Lynn x

Snippets playground 271/272

Hi there, what a gorgeous day it has been.  I do hope that you are enjoying some sunshine wherever you are.  My card today  features some snippets of card for matting, and a tiny bit of glitter card which I used glossy accents on for a heart embellishment.  This card is going to Di's Snippets Playground.  I think I hear the first ice-cream van chimes of the year!

It will be my lovely mom's birthday soon, so this card is for her.  I have lots to do through March and April, and I always seem to be chasing my tail!

See you soon,

Butterfly Challenge #74

Hello, and a very happy Sunday to you all.  My card today is for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, E for edges and or the colour Mint.

I was very happy to see that Mrs. A had showcased my card for challenge 72, which you can see here.  Thank you so much Mrs. A, and I am proudly showing off my 'TOP 3' badge.

Now, on to my card

I made the card shape and layers using the Scan and Cut Canvas software - I still have a lot to learn, but at least this turned out okay.  I have used SU mint macaron ink for the flourish stamping, and a mint green cardstock for the butterfly body and the shadow on the flourishes.  The flowers I stamped onto copy paper, and used cosmic shimmer paint, but the shimmer does not show up on the photo. The edge is my vertical border and ribbon.

Thanks for dropping by.

Merry Monday 237 - sparkle and shimmer - and snippets

Hi there, another week seems to have whizzed past, but it's great when you get to a week-end! It's all about sparke and shimmer over at the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, and I really enjoyed making this little card.
I think I shall make a few more of these.  I have used the last little bit of my glitter card though.  Which reminds me, I can take my card over to Di in the Snippets Playground too,  Thanks for looking.
