Good morning everybody.  Like the rest of the U.K. it is very windy here and some very heavy showers.  My two cards today were from a design by  the wonderful Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace.  This lady makes the most fabulous cards.  I also wanted to start using up some of my mountain of coloured card.  Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today.

Hi Everyone from a very bright but chilly day here in Northern Ireland.  It is certainly more Spring like today after the rain and winds of the last few days.  My card today is as CAS as I could possible make.  The La Blanche stamp had been lying in the drawer and never been used - so I decided to stamp it and gold emboss it just to see what it looked like.  I was quite pleased with the outcome so I put it on a plain Spellbinders diecut and used plain card and a little mirror card for matting.  When I looked at the finished card I thought that it would probably be useful for a Sympathy card.  The green is slightly darker in the photograph.  In real life it is actually a very soft sage green.
Thank you so much for looking in.

Hi Everyone.  My card today was a request by my sister for her daughter who is getting married on the 21st March.  She asked for something a little different from the normal bride and groom images and she wanted something blue on it.  I cut the shape with my Spellbinders Grand Circles and the heart was the shape left when I cut out a memory box heart.  I criss crossed some ribbon along the back of the heart and added two butterflies and some pearls.  A very easy card and I am glad to say that she is pleased with it.
Thank you for taking a look and for all the lovely comments that you left on my last card.  I appreciate all of them.
