Under the Weather for Daring Cardmakers

 Here's the last card for my guest design team spot over on Daring Cardmakers, this week the theme is Under the Weather, be sure to check out the samples, there are some particularly brilliant ideas there this week. The challenge runs until Friday, so you still have time to take part....I have really enjoyed joining in with the challenges for this month, thanks for having me Daring Cardmakers!

I decided to make a shaker card

Using a cut from a Cricut cartridge, I'm really sorry but I forgot to take a note of which cartridge I used. The sentiment is from a really old set from MFT, papers are Making Memories.....

and I used the cut out umbrella to decorate the inside of the card

And talking about the weather...we thought Spring had arrived here in the UK, glorious warm sunshine, trees laden with blossom and birds going crazy with happiness.....but mother nature, as she so often does on these shores, has been capricious and now cold arctic blasts have hit us again, so it's back to the boots and winter woolies for the time being. I'm so glad I didn't have time to get excited about summer and pack away all the cold weather gear in favour of tee shirts and flip flops - I have lived long enough to know that that would be a very risky strategy here in the UK. So I am off to make a nice warming cup of hot chocolate now...........
See you tomorrow x


  1. Anyone receiving your card would no longer feel under the weather. Thanks for sharing and stay warm!

  2. Beautiful card Enfys. Thanks for being such a wonderful guest designer on Daring Cardmakers. And I am so pleased that your Son in Law is doing well after his accident

  3. What an adorable card Enfys. Shaker cards are always so much fun, and I love that you decorated the inside with the "negative" unbrella image ... which, of course, looks delightfully "positive" how you've used it. Just an FYI, is rainy and dreary here in central Florida today ... but still very hot. Aren't you glad that you've escaped this muggy, humid climate!

  4. Lovely card, En. Funny how even here in SC, we had some of that glorious stuff too. Immediately followed by some much cooler temps. I had pulled out some shorts, but didn't put away the warm woolies either. Even though we're not on the same weather paths... we sometime get the same weather? Well, we get what we get. Hope all is well with you and Mike. Hugs Jess

  5. Wow that is such an amazing shaker card Enfys!! You get great use out of your cricut, mine is a great dust catcher!! The weather over here has been terrible, sleet, snow, hail stones, winds then sunshine! But definitely no heat. Still wearing my big knickers lol.

  6. I think you must have had James on your mind when you made a get well card! It's fabulous Enfys, such a great idea to make it into a shaker card. Pat x

  7. Such a cute card, Love that color green.
