Creative Moments Challenge – Spring

How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much more pleasing is your love than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume than any spice!

Song of Soloman 4:10

The new chllenge starts today at Creative Moments and the theme is Spring (or anything goes)  I have used Bella Bride from Sassy Studio designs to make this spring wedding card with a British twist.  The papers were free in Making Cards Magazine and were designed by Nancy Watt.

Toadstool thank you to a friend

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Collossians 3:14

Today’s card ismade from some lovely new stamps I got at the Hobby crafts show at the NEC last month. My friend, Anne bought me some beautiful stamps from Lavina stamps and I bought this sentiment from Clarity.   I made this card to thank her using Letraset Aquamarkers.

My daughter’s Easter Card

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”

John 11:25-26

I bought and coloured this Mo Manning image before I saw the edition of Making Cards Magazine where I found these perfectly matching free papers.  The bow is from Docrafts and the sentiment was from my stash.  To be honest I think she is more like me when I was little than like my daughter  – though I don’t remember wearing pink bloomers like this!

Creative Fingers challenge – Easter

Benson Bear – Nature watching form Crafty Sentiments.  The purple floral paper is a scrap from my stash and the sentiment is from a Dawn Bibby collection.  I love the combination of yellow and lilac which is classic for Easter.

Preparing for Easter and 1st Communions

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

  1Corinthians 11:26

We have a busy week ahead with Easter Sunday being the children’s 1st Holy Communion and a craft morning planned for local children on Good Friday.  By busy, I mean that I have to fit lots of crafting in as I’ll need cards for all of these occasions.

Yippee!

Today though I am sharing a simple Easter card that I have made using a Hunkydory Kit.  I love spots and dots and this backing paper is delightful.  The diecut squares are edged with gold foiling and everything is mounted onto a gold 5″ x 5″ card blank.

Creative Moments challenge – Make it girly

Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you

Matthew 7:12

Good Morning, the new challenge at Creative Moments is Make it Girly.  The challenge is sponsored Digi Darla and I have made the card below using free papers and embellishments and a fun saying of my own.  Well sort of my own as I first saw this as read until I feel better but thought it could work for knit, crochet, colour-in  or sunbathe…the list goes on…

Art deco

A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things

Ecclesiastes 10:19

This is a 3D decoupage image made into a card solely using Docrafts projects. I chose the yellow card blank to emphasise the yellow of her dress and although there are the colours of the sea and trees, this is a card in yellow, black and grey – striking and perfect for the Art Deco theme. I made this card for a lady who has recently left work.  The range is called Art Deco and makes me long for a glamourous picnic by the sea…with champagne of course!
