Rose Card

This  card is one which I actually made some time ago but haven't posted on here (at least I don't think so).  Although it is a birthday card I think the design would work well for Valentine's Day with a more suitable sentiment.  The stamp is one I've had for quite a while and is a favourite which this time was embossed before colouring with pencils.

A Busy Week

I've had a very busy week meeting friends for coffee and some crafty chat, different friends for lunch on another day, going to patchwork group and also a craft group as well as fitting in the boring stuff like food shopping and 'domestic' stuff - all of which means I've not posted a blog since last Sunday.  Finally yesterday I spent a very enjoyable morning at a quilling workshop with the talented Jill of Jill's Quills where we were offered various design options including a selection of flowers or this quirky frog to make.  I thought he would make a good card to cheer someone up if they were feeling a bit under the weather and as various snippets of card and ribbon were incorporated I'm putting it into the challenge for Pixie Snippets this week.  I found a suitable snippet of plaid background paper; some bits and pieces of card for the die cut shapes and also ribbon snippets just to finish off with a couple of bits of Card Candi.  The frog as you see was made from snippets of quilling paper and I carried him home carefully so that I could build up the card once I got back amongst my scraps.

Apologies for the quality of the picture but it is far too dull to take a photo this morning so I had to resort to the scanner which isn't ideal for a dimensional card like this.
