Another showcase...

Well another week has passed...where?.....I am not sure but some more general sorting done and a tiny bit of craft sorting and acouple of cards made...but can't share them yet either...sorry!

So?...I hear you say what have you got to share. I have the last of the non Christmas cards from class which restarts in 3 weeks time.

Here goes.....first up Crafters Companion layered flower die.....not sure on the trellis die..a beast to get all the bits out of as I remember!

A lot of fiddly paper piecing on this one and some stenciling for the background.I think this  is an Elizabeth Crafts die.....

This one is Crafters Companion stamp....a lot of colouring with copics...

 next a Pink Ink stamp...at class this was a completely coloured image but I chose to keep the lion in black and white and preferred it!.....just an inky background.

These are Clarity dies (small ones).....over multi coloured paper.very effective and great for a male card too.

Lastly another Crafters Companion die. I still think the front needs something more and will tweek before I use it.....

and here is the centre......

so that's my showcase for this week....all caught up now. We make 6 cards in a class...3 in each session...so it's time fraught!

Thank you for stopping by and to those of you who commented on my last post and chose your favourite card...I love to read your comments.

Still loading things on to the new computer here and getting to know windows 10. I can't fathom how to create a sub- folder in windows 10 email though. I have googled it of course but I don't have the + sign it talks about when you click on more in the left hand column.. If anyone knows the answer please would you let me know! I would be so grateful.

On that note it's time to love you and leave you as they say...it feels like the weekend to me today, no idea why.
 We had a bit of sleet here this morning and then quite a bit of rain...then the odd sunny spell...winter is yet to make it's presence felt I fear though the bulbs are well through in the pots and the garden adn the snowdrops are in flower.

Take care my friends...stay warm and well and I will see you again soon I hope.
Crafty hugs and thanks to all of you

  1. A lovely collection of cards for an array of occasions. I rather like the handsome lion with the pop of red on the crown. It's hard to choose though, they're all pretty in different ways. Take care until next time x

  2. Goodness me Carole, this is a real bumper post, stamping, dies and paper piecing but each individual in it's own way.

  3. Wow!! Carole you have been busy!! All beautiful designs and very different. Have a lovely weekend coming!! I often think it's the weekend, when it's not!! The joy of being retired. Hugs Carol S.xxx

  4. Hi Carole - well what a fabulous collection of cards! They are all so lovely but the surprise in the final card is just awesome - so professional looking. I think you were right to leave the regal lion as is - it looks perfect against the background. Hope you are having a great weekend.

  5. Wow!! So much beauty here today... I love them all and I'm completely smitten with the inside pop up on your birthday card! Have a great day!

  6. Lots of card candy today!! I love them all...that pop up birthday sure looks fun!

  7. Hi Carole

    Caught up with you at last!! Life has been a bit hectic here.

    Loving each an every card. You certainly get lots done at your classes .. .. bet there is no time for chatting!!!

    Particularly love the "king for a day" card. Perfect for those awkward male cards. I saw it at a local craft store a couple of weeks ago and really struggled to leave it on the shelves. I feel I may succumb at some point! LOL!!!

    Love Jules xx
