Brhhh it's Spring!

Hello friends
Okay who is playing with the weather dial!?  
I cannot believe snow right before Easter. 
In my own effort to bring some Spring feeling I'm featuring my final
Home card created for this month's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.
Classic Scallop Edgeabilities over a strip of lace.  A strip of ribbon and then Grommet Tag
stamped with the 'Home' sentiment.
Oh...yes the little flowers from Homespun too.

Yesterday Janice asked about demos with flowers dies, including 
I featured these on a Friday Die Day here - there's also a You Tube video.
So easy to do that even the cat joins in....!
Have a lovely weekend dear friends and if we 
all wish hard enough perhaps Spring will arrive!

Hi Christine. What a bright, sunny card today.

What awful weather in the Uk. My son in North Wales couldn't get to work yesterday as his car was snowed in. It's almost the end of March what is happening?

So disappointed when i came to play with my Grand Calibur yesterday for the first time. Instead of having an A,B,and C plate, I had 2xC's and no A. I contacted C+C but I don't hold out much hope as they're not so good with aftercare. I'd packed my Cuttlebug away but now it's out again.

Hey Ho, that's life.
Keep warm and safe everyone.

Morning Christine,
Firstly, poor Val, how disappointing not to be able to play with her G/C, hope it gets sorted soon.
Very pretty card I love the new home ones that you have shown over the last few days.
As for the weather its awful.
Stay warm everyone.

Janice said...

Morning Christine
what a lovely Spring looking card today....just what we need! It's snowing here this morning, really hoping it comes to nothing much. They forecast a snowy Easter, I really hope not!
Have a lovely day & keep warm.

Hi Christine, thank you for cheering us up with this super card..and for the carnation tut, this die is definitely on my list now! Although we are lucky not to have snow in the southwest, phew, as it really is my pet hate - there have been floods where people are still trying to get over the last lot! Come on Mr Sunshine, wakey wakey! Hugs, Carole Z X

Sally said...

Hi Christine,
A lovely bright sunny card, if only the weather was the same. I think this weekend is a craft's the only good thing about the weather.
Take care Sally x

Nikki Payne said...

Another gorgeous card :) I love the beautiful papers that you have used, I'm afraid to say that no spring here.... just snow!
But at least we have an excuse to craft all weekend.... my goodies have arrived from H/C so will be playing with them , I have a few ideas! Not sure they are going to work as believe it or not I actually created them in my sleep ....does that sound sad :)
I hope the weather in Gravesend isn't too bad and you can still get to your studio x
Have a wonderful weekend x

Lol whatever is happening with the weather? all i know is we are better off staying indoors and getting crafty ....

A lovely card again Christine the colours go well together and look so fresh, i never think to put a border over lace ,so will give it a go as it looks dead cool .

Have a good weekend

Good morning Christine,
Bbbbrrrr it's freezing although it does look beautiful seeing just a thin white blanket draped over everything!
Another lovely card, but why on earth call a set of dies "grommet tags" it just sound so unappealing, although they are very nice tags! I see the card didn't escape the "homespun" flowers, haha (it must be your most used due set)! I may have to just buy it from you, although I would also very much the dies you used in the FDD project, hhhmm decisions!
A question now..... Do you use the mat and layer basic dies?
Warm hugs for a chilly day,
Sandra Riley xxxx
