Daisy Days

Hi Crafters,

I've used these lovely Elisabeth Bell images from The Hobby House on two versions of this card. These pre-coloured toppers really are a time saver.



Both the square and stepper cards have a gorgeous pre-coloured topper from The Hobby House by Elisabeth Bell and I've mounted them using a Spellbinders Label Twenty Two die.
The backing papers come from the Polkadoodles Daisy Days CD-Rom, hence the title of this post and the sentiments are LOTV stamps.
The colours in this image and the papers from the CD-Rom match beautifully and you would think they were created for each other.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
The Ribbon Girl - Sept. Any Image Challenge
Deep Ocean - #138 ATG

Bye for now,

Christmas Card Club Challenge #19 - Woolly Hats and Gloves

Hi Crafters,

Happy Sunday to you all!
I've just returned from a weeks holiday on the East Coast, we had fabulous weather and couldn't have asked for more as it was late in the season and unexpected.
My absence explains my sporadic commenting last week so if I did not visit you then rest assured I will be popping along soon over the next few days.

Now on to why I'm here today, it's another Christmas Card Club project.
This time it was Kate's turn to choose the theme for our Christmas creations, she has given us 

Woolly Hats & Gloves


I've used another of these fabulous Craft Creations Decoupage images for my card.
She's wearing a hat and gloves and I'm guessing they're woolly so hope this fits the brief.


Recipe
Image - Craft Creations Decoupage Sheet
Papers - Dovecraft 'Glad Tidings' 8 x 8 Pad

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Christmas Extra - Sept. ATG
CHNC Every Saturday - ATG as long as it's Christmas / Cute
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - #381 Christmas


My Christmas card making is coming along a treat and I have quite a pile now so feel pretty pleased at this stage. Most of my family ones are made now and I have plenty for my stall too.

Please pop along to the other ladies in the group, they have all created some fantastic cards for this week - you know the drill by now that their blog links are in my top tab bar above.

See you soon,

Lorraine
