Couple of cards & a Challenge

Hi hope everyone out there has a great week-end today starts a new challenge over at OSCC and it's Itzuvit's challenge & she has chose to do Altered ( pleased I don't have to do this challenge as it's not my bag although I have a few things that need doing) the Lovely Sponsors this week are Sassy Studio's, so why not pop over there & join in the fun also its a sad week-end for us Teamies as Itzuvit has chosen to step down she will be greatly missed by all.

I am doing a card class with my friend Kate AKA Downright  Crafty which will be good, got an extension on the class this week also good. Today I thought I would start this week-ends blog with something lovely from my 5yr old Grand Daughter Grace, which is a watering can of Dandelions which she thought I would like which I thought it a very nice thought.

Second is a card that I made which was inspired by Kate saying she had a beach hut & I got these stamps from Little Claire whilst at Harrogate in March. The papers are freebies, the punch is MS, the sentiment is off the computer & the Sand castle & bling dots are from my stash.

Now lastly is a card I made for my friend who has just had her first Grand Daughter Evie Rose born on Thursday I love Jude to bits this is not my older friend Judith who retired last year.   The papers are Wild Rose butterfly pack, the flowers I made using my Nesties, MS punch, bling, feathers, lace & basket are from my stash

  1. Now where to start
    firstly love the dandelions in the jug how thoughtful of Grace :)

    Love the beach hut, great stripes and love the sandcastle, I have just come down from the "Beach Hut" getting a little warm, shame no water up there to dabble my feet in

    Oh such a sweet little baby girl card, love all the feathers (they give it such a soft feel) so pretty and great flowers too

    and last but not least, look forward to seeing you at our extended class tomorrow, it should be fun :)

    cya soon

  5. Hi Janet,
    Your cards are wonderful. I particularly like how you created a feather soft bed for baby to lie on. And what's not to love about a watering can full of dandelions from someone very special! Thanks for joining us at C4E this week.
