Vintage poppies

For today’s card I printed papers and elements from Debbi Moore’s Vintage Botanicals CD.  Each part was dusted around the edge with Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink.

Christmas round

One of the things I love most about Polkadoodles’ artwork is the little toadstool embellishments that are found in almost every kit.  So, I just had to include them in this card.  This card took a lot of fussy cutting, which I normally avoid(!) but , it was worth it .

Summer flowers

This card was made a a leaving card for the secretary at my children’s school. She was retiring due to ill health so I kept the sentiment quite generic.

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self control.

The image I have used is from The Stamping Chef.  It is coloured with Promarkers.  I have used some old papers and embellishments from Hunkydory’s Antique Flourish range.  The ribbon and gems are from my stash.

Thank you – with birds

And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

Genisis 1:30

 

Here is another card made with Hunkydory stash today.  It is really simpled with die-cut pieces arranged onto a layered piece of decorated card stock.

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!
