Four Random Cards.

What a lovely morning it is after a hard frost - haven't we so much to be thankful for? Looking round the garden I notice some Spring bulbs shooting through the ground, even surpassing the weeds!! Spring is my favourite time of the year with all the colour in the garden and of course, leaving Winter behind. Not that it has been a hard Winter at all down here in Canterbury, New Zealand!

Last week was lost to me, as we were down in the Catlins seeing our farm family and our daughter and grandchildren at Mosgiel, who are leaving for overseas for 5 months, meeting up with our son-in-law in London. He is a consultant on oil rigs, so hence travel is not new to him. We trust they will have a great time and our prayers go with them.

Today I would like to share four random cards that I have made.

I love making baby cards and this one was no exception! I have used a Martha Stewart Round The Page punch to do the edging, put the pink card through the E'Bosser with a folder, added some lace and the gorgeous baby picture was from Pinterest. I LOVE it!

For this card I have used the lovely Prima Stationer's Desk Collection added lace and tulle, then a felt Prima flower which was a perfect colour match. Again my image is of Pinterest. I love the vintage look this range has.

One always seems to need sympathy cards!! Marianne Designables DS0907 was used. It  actually embosses but also cuts out small sections which lets the under colour show through. I cut the label frame out using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals and the stamp is from Stampin' up. They are lovely words.

A Couture Creations Ornamental Lace Die CO723240,  Lotus Filet was used to cut the frame for this card.
Spellbinders Ovals to cut the picture from Pinterest - a very simple card. Again I have used Prima flowers.

Must away and enjoy this lovely day. Thank you all so much for stopping by and do hope I have given some inspiration for your next projects.

Happy crafting ladies, God bless you all,

  1. Betsy, these are all beautiful although I think my favorite is the third. I love the colors and the embossing :)

    1. Hi Em, Thank you so much for your encouraging comments. Yes, I also love that folder that I have cut the third card from - it really does lend itself to a sympathy card. Love and blessings, Betsy.
