More Craftwork Cards Samples for CHA

Here's a couple more of the cards I made for the Craftwork Cards stand at CHA. This first one is quite glitzy, lots of bling and butterflies..... I used three different message labels, so the card reads
For my wonderful friend.....on your birthday...........have a lovely day





 Flowers made from upside down Card Candi..... the leaf spray is a Fiskars die





Since the cards were going to America, I thought a Stars and Stripes card would be fun...it was a real task getting the right number of stripes in the right order! I mounted them onto white cardstock, and bent the card a bit before putting on the base card with foam pads so it looks as if there is movement

I haven't done much crafting this weekend as our daughter has been home for a chill-out weekend. She certainly picked the right weekend for chill - it has been freezing, and we had lovely snow on Saturday (I love snow when it's all pristine, everything looks so pretty).

Conversation between my son and four year old Max
Max - Is God a man or a woman?
Edward - I don't know, nobody knows
Max - Oh...................long pause.....................I think I've met him

See you tomorrow with a new challenge and the winners of the very first Going Buggy challenge

  5. Wow that's one blinging stunner of a card, the foil really makes it very elegant and rich. Max is so much fun Enfys, you should save all these little chats for a book;)

  11. I've been waiting for the upside down card candy flowers to see how it's done. Looks easy enuf... Lovely cards. I'm curious is your son asked Max about his meeting with God, and if so how it turned out. Kids are just so amazing! TFS
