Late as usual!


Well January is whizzing past as no doubt the rest of the year will do so I thought I had better wish all my lovely blogging friends the above before it got too Happy 2024 everyone!

I hope this finds you all safe,well, warm and that you had a good festive season...seems ages ago now doesn't it!

Apologies for my lack of blogging yet happens and shoulder surgery due a couple of weeks ago was cancelled and is now next month. 

As I haven't much new to blog I have delved into the folder with some cards I did last year that never made it here.

I had cause for a couple of 90th Birthday cards last year (wonder if I will make another two decades?)

Here they are just different colours. I think I like the lemon one best, which is your favourite?

I think the embossing is a Lisa Horton folder that comes with the die to cut it out and I coloured with oxides, very gently applying with a sponge finger dauber. and then placed in the aperture cut with a  circle die

The sentiment and numbers are old from my ever growing, never decreasing stash.

Sorry the photos are not the best for showing detail. The lemon one is bazzill card..remember that? and the pink one the same but already bobbled in effect.

So there we have my first post of 2024 and if you have not given up on me, and kindly stopped by to peek, then please let me know. It's good to have friends and know that I am not talking to myself ( I seem to spend a bit of time doing that anyway!)

Thank you for popping in...see you again soon I hope with some more 'left overs'.

  1. These cards are gorgeous. Funnily enough I have made a card for a 90 yr old today, but it is nothing like yours. Love the soft inking and texture. Those emboss and die cut sets have been on my wish list for a long time, but they haven't materialised into my stash yet x

  2. Happy New Year Carole! I’m glad you shared these, they are soooooo pretty, the lemon is my fave too xxx

  3. When I first saw these I thought deffo Lemon for me - although having had another look I'm not so sure! Both lush matey. (and a bummer about the surgery) x

  4. Two beautiful cards, Carole. Not sure I can pick a favourite, I keep changing my mind as I love them both.
    Sorry to hear than your surgery was postponed, fingers crossed it goes ahead on the new date.

  5. A belated visit and a C&P comment I'm afraid as MS preventing me doing much still, but can at least take a peek at what everyone is creating.

  6. Two beautiful cards, Carole! I love both of them with the lovely flowers and sweet butterflies! Sorry to hear your should surgery was cancelled. Sending warm thoughts your way for a successful surgery! Have a great week!!

  7. Hi Carole
    Both cards are beautiful .. .. .. but like you I am drawn to the lemon one.
    Those embossed flowers look amazing!
    Hope you have had a good weekend.
    Love Jules xx

  8. These cards are so pretty, Carole! I love that gorgeous flower, and your inking has really enhanced them. I like them both so couldn't pick between them but the different colours do have their own personality don't they? I hope the surgery now goes ahead as planned and that you have a swift recovery.
    Hope you are otherwise well,
    Carol x
