Hi Everybody and a very warm welcome to my new followers Jackie and Sandra.  My first card today is one that I made which I thought would be rather nice for an 80th birthday which was requested by my neighbour but when I gave her a choice of a few cards she did not choose this one and actually much to my surprise chose the second card.

                                                                 

This is actually the card she chose.

I hope you have all been enjoying the lovely weather.  It has been very misty here since yesterday and unfortunately rain is on it's way.  Thank you for taking a look.

Hope you are keeping well. Weather here has been grea although it is starting to cloud and we are to get rain tomorrow I believe.
Happy crafting.

Wow, Marie-Louise, what lovely cards. I really like how you folded the die-cut on the first and wonderful card die-cut shape too. Your second one is so totally beautiful with the die-cut gold butterfly against that great DP and great bow. I would have a hard time trying to choose!!

They're both such beautiful cards Marie Louise, I'm a sucker for beautiful papers and love butterflies so it has to be the second one for me. Carol xx

Hi Marie-Louise,

Stunning cards, surprised she never chose the first one as that is the one I favour out of the two even though the second one is gorgeous too. Well done.

Love & hugs

Hello Marie-Louise
Two absolutely beautiful cards - but I think I really prefer the first one too.
I haven't been on your blog for a little while - so off now to have a good look around & cat xxch up on what you have been creating.

Karen D. said...

so pretty...so elegant...well done mf!

Planetsusie said...

I don't suppose it was easy for her to choose at all Marie-Louise. All your cards are delicate and beautiful and these two are both the above. Whichever one she chose would have been perfect for the occasion. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Cards By Jan said...

Oh ...what beautiful cards...awesome idea to fold the doily..and your colours are so vibrant, and pretty...great cards!!!

John Steedman said...

I prefer the top card - effective because of its relative simplicity, I think. There's no right or wrong about art though is there? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Jules said...

Very beautiful cards .. .. hanging my head in shame that it has taken me so long to look at them!

Both cards are beautiful Marie-Louise. The first one is so elegant and the second card just gorgeous with the shabby chic style. Lovely work!

Marjorie said...

Oh Marie-Louise both of these cards are stunning, it's hard to choose a favorite... sorry I haven't been for a visit for a while, but life has been quiet hectic recently.. thank you for your lovely comments on my blog, and I'm sorry to hear that your husbands injections didn't work either.. I think they might replace David's hip as it's more work related than arthritis, as he was in heavy engineering, and pain killers just don't work for him.
Love and Hugs,
