"Celebrate & Enjoy" Card Pair for 2 Crafty Chipboard







For this month's shares at 2Crafty I made some cards!!  You can see my post
with them in HERE, so please take a peek there if you want to know the
names of any bits I've used & how I've treated the pieces.  


I really loved putting together these little beauties, using gorgeous new 7 Dots
"Soulmates" papers to compliment the wonderful chipboard, along with
my favourite, Prima flowers & some art glitter & Color Bloom Sprays.  


I love how you can create a lush looking card without having to add heaps
 of product to it - just off-cuts of this & that.  I only wish I had the time
 to create more of them.  Hand-made cards are special I think.  


My bestie has a birthday coming up soon so she will definitely be getting one of these
 & the other one is destined for my mum-in-law so both have been spoken for!


Thanks for popping in on me today!
Life is really busy this year - busier than it has ever been I think -
so unfortunately my online social time has flown out the window,
so I do apologise if I have been lacking in reciprocal support.
I appreciate all my online friends so much but don't get
much time at all to spend visiting any longer...

Aww, Helen...these are beautiful, especially with the embossing to give that yummy texture. The flowers look gorgeous on them too.....hope your MIL and Bestie enjoy them as much as I have looking at them:):)

You're so right Helen, a hand made card really is something special and these are so beautiful they will be treasured by whoever is lucky enough to recieve them - great idea to use up all those offcuts on cards, I must have loads like that, maybe I will have a go too. Thanks for another inspiring post :o)

Yes cards are a great little creative fix when you just want to create but dont have the time for a huge layout! These cards are so lovely, the chippies look amazing, and love the flowers too...
