Afternoon tea

Hi crafters,
We made a box frame card at our workshop on Saturday and I struggled a bit with it but I was determined to have another go and of course it was much easier the second time!
I wanted to make a leaving card for someone that was a bit different and I needed an afternoon tea theme so of course this image was perfect. It's from Lisa's CD 'A year in cards' and I've used one of the decoupage images. I made some bunting with some matching papers and added some glitter and pearls.
I'd like to enter my project in the 'Anything goes' challenge at Crafting from the heart.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

Bon Voyage!

Hi crafters,
I'm back with another card and Lisa's CD saved the day again!
I needed a card for someone who's leaving work to go off on their travels and this image was ideal!
I added some string to the sentiment to make it look like a luggage label and added some flowers to match. A bit of glitter and ribbon and job done. This 'A Play on words' CD has been brilliant for all my recent cards- all the backing papers are from the cd too!
I'd like to enter my card in the 'Anything goes' challenge at Crafting from the heart.
See you soon,
Hugs, Karen xx

Get baking!

Hi crafters,
I'm really struggling in this gorgeous weather we're having, to sit down and craft! Not complaing though of course!
I've got so many cards to do at the moment so I've turned to Lisa's 'Play on Words' CD for help!
The first card is a Welsh 70th birthday card for a lady who loves to bake cakes so this image was perfect.
I added flowers in matching colours, some ribbon and pearls and then the card was done.

I made a box for the card as it was for a special birthday and some bunting gave it the 'bake off' feel!

I'd like to enter my card in the 'Anything goes' challenge at Fan-Tastic Tuesday.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen
