I've Been Such A Bad Blogger Lately...

Why does real life so get in the way of my crafting/card making. I can't believe that I have been missing again for the last few weeks, and not managed to make many cards.

I had every intention at the beginning of the year to blog more often like at least 3 days a week, and here we are 3 weeks after my last blog. I must do better and make more hours in the day.

Anyway here are a couple of my recent cards, that I sent to Marg and Claire for winning my 'Say it with Flowers challenge





I love this image (although not sure where I got it from), and have used the same style of cards, but used different pretty papers. I have used co-ordinating ribbon to match the papers, and pearls from my stash, and used an MS boarder punch on the edge of the patterned paper. The circles were cut using nesties on the bug, and flat backed gems added to the middle of the roses to give the image a bit of a sparkle.

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - ribbon and pearls
Digital Tuesday - use a die cut
Craft Your Passion - pink
Lexi's Creations - bears
One Stitch at a Time - pretty
