Make My Monday Week 33

Well I've just about made this challenge by the skin of my teeth because there will be a new nature topic over at Make My Monday tomorrow!!  We are still on a nature theme for January and this week it was 'flowers and leaves'.  I've used stamps from Faith in Nature by Stampin Up; the background paper is also theirs and it has leaves and swirls.  A Top Note die has been embossed with leaves as well and a simple border and ribbon added. Images were coloured with Flex Markers.

I cannot believe that I've not actually made a card or inked any stamps for over a week - nearly forgotten how!!  This last week just seemed to disappear in no time at all but I really aim to get inky this coming week - getting withdrawal symptoms.

Well I missed the deadline which must be earlier than I thought - never mind at least I've made a card today!!


  1. A beautiful card Val, lovey colours. It's great to see you back in action again.

    (I too have missed the deadline for MMM, I believe it closes midnight on Saturday.)

  3. Well it's nice to see you managed to get back into your craft room
    Lovely card Val at least your stamps abe been out of their


  4. I know - the week vanished!! Delightful soft colours & I like the way you used both a leaf & a flower image for the theme. I love the placement of your ribbon & the way the knot picks up the shape of the embossed matting panel.

  9. Shame you missed the deadline Val but it's a beautiful card that someone is going to be very pleased to receive at some point. Pretty colour combo and lovely images. I like the embossed layer too.
