Crafting up a Storm...

Hello friends

Hope your Sunday has been as enjoyable as ours.  Kendall is busy studying for a Notary examination, so I decided to make some more cards this afternoon.  Thought I would just share 2 of them with you.  I had such FUN making them.  I did a bit of online shopping for a friend and myself and we can't wait for our new Art Pads to arrive from Lily of the Valley.  Hou duim vas Cariena dat dit nie te lank neem om hier by my uit te kom nie :)


Recipe for this creation
Image:  Pre-coloured Art Pad from Lily of the Valley called Wild Flowers
Paper:  Lilac cardstock for the border, layering a variety of patterned paper on top, divided by a gorgeous lilac dotted ribbon 
Sentiment:  Also one from Lily of the Valley's range of sentiments.
Border:  Martha Stewart's Vintage Doily punch - my absolute fave as you have probably noticed :)
Pearls:  From my stash, purchased from my friend Paola

This is a side view.  As you can see I have decorated the inside as well.



Recipe for this creation
Image:  Pre-coloured Art Pad from Lily of the Valley called Jack, Patch and Puss (Set 2)
Paper:  Brown cardstock for the border, layering gorgeous lilac patterned polka dot paper on top, divided by a gorgeous lilac dotted ribbon 
Sentiment:  Also one from Lily of the Valley's range of sentiments.
Border:  Martha Stewart's Vintage Doily punch 
Card Candy:  From my stash.  These come in so handy.

A side view so that you can see the inside as well.


And then another angle, just for FUN!  The sentiments I find a bit large.  Wish they would come a bit smaller as they seem to overpower the card.
