Good morning everyone out there - here I am posting my next card for the TTPH challenge and this time we want you to use 'Flowers'!  Now as you can see from 'some' of my previous posts I just adore flowers so this was a very easy one for me to do .. and ..  I was given this absolutely amazingly beautiful digi to use.  Isn't she cute?

 Check out the embossing on the side of my card - I found my chalks!!!  I usually use DI's but wanted a very soft look so, after a bit of a hunt around, I found my chalks - on the shelf where I'd stored them - duh!!  There's just a faint smidge on the flowers and a little more around the edge of the silver matted layer.  I made the three central flowers using 'hydrangea' petals from WOC (the stamens were in my stash from years ago).


7" x 7" white card blank - Anna Marie Designs

Good afternoon everyone out there in blogland!  I'm here again to post my DT card for the OSAAT Challenge.  Our theme this time is 'Anything Goes with Fancy Borders!  There's so much scope with this theme 'cos you can do absolutely any sort of border!

 For once I made a rectangular shaped card because I thought the image would look nicer with the borders underneath in layers.   I can't remember when I last made a card this size!

Hi there - sorry to have missed blogging some cards recently but February has been one of those months for being poorly!  Yuk!!  I've only managed to do the bare minimum of my card stuff - so I'm feeling totally guilty!  Hopefully March will now start to improve the problems I've been having and the blood tests I've had may help.  

Anyway enough of my boring stuff, today I'm posting my next card for the Crafty Calendar DT and our theme this month is ... Mother's Day/Special Female so we'd love to see your creations.  I'll just post my card and then tell you about the sponsors.
