For Case This Sketch and thank you to Shirley-Anne

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is my card for the sketch over at Case this Sketch this week. All the material for the card including the nesties and stamp were sent to me by Shirley-Anne. I embossed the round nesties and stuck the sentiment that was also sent by Shirley-Anne. Thank you, dear blog buddy.

To a special friend

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is a card I have made with Sizzix thinlets which were water coloured by Aleeza and I cut them individually to place them around the sentiment. The sentiment was sent to me by dear Sandra a few years ago. 



Below is a close up of the same card

Angels create miracles and so do our friends

Hello dear bloggers,

 I have made this card with a stencilled background and have used thick water colours to colour in the stencil. 
The sentiment was stamped many years ago and the sides of the paper have been hand torn and I have used my Marvy brush marker to go over them.  
I have also stamped a dragon fly in yellow and green around the sentiment which barely shows. 
The flower diecut is from Sizzix and I have used water colours to colour it.

Thanks

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is my card to show you for CAS(E) this Sketch. The red and black strip is part of some packaging material and I have had it for a while now. I tell you I am happy to see it on this card. The thanks sentiment was bought from the US last year. I cannot recall where it came from.

 

I will also submit my card for the following challenges:

thank you

Hello bloggers,

Here is small card I made for someone special. The card stock came from dear Shirley-Anne. Thank you, Shirley. I have used a Unity stamp and the butterflies have been stamped in Brilliant pearlescent light blue. Aleeza suggested I go over the butterflies with Wink of Stella to highlight the butterflies. The card looks quite pretty in real life with the sparkle. The sentiment is a die cut from Kaiser. I have used Marks and Spencer tea packaging for the same. The embroidery yarn is from my stash. I ran the blue paper through my cuttlebug and embossed it with polkas. 




Happy crafting,

Thanks

Hello bloggers,

Here is my card for http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/ which is all about sequins. The big round aluminium nestie has been die cut from a yoghurt lid and so has the sentiment. The flower sequins are handmade from India. It was Aleeza who felt I should put them on the card so here they are. 


Happy blogging,

Have a great day!

Hello bloggers,

Here is a simple card to show you today made with my altenew dies. The papers are from India and all handmade. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I wish it was not a bit smudgy. I have used a brilliance ink to stamp it.

Thank you

Dear bloggers,

Here is a quick card I made a few months ago with my new Sizzix papers. All I did was add a die cut sentiment in the centre. The paper was coloured with purple acrylic paint by Aleeza, my younger one. I know this card is simple and does not boast of any skills yet I like the colours and the flowers here.
