The Play Date Cafe Challenge #66

Another card challenge, this time for The Play Date Cafe.

                                I saw this gorgeous color combination over at Play Date Cafe. Oh my gosh,
It's just gorgeous and of course I had to play along.
                                The Challenge was to use black and white with a splash of lilac.

This is what I came up with.

The butterflies and leaves are from Stampin Up- Embosslits Beautiful wings and  Little leaves.
The leaves are lined with glitter also. 

The card sketch came from here.
Thanks for taking a look at my card today.

More of my holiday cards

                                  Here are some more cards I managed to make while
                                             on my three weeks annual leave.
Love these little butterflies! I found them when I was on holidays.
They are glitter on acetate with little pearl centres.
How cute are they! There was red, purple and white in a pack.
Here are the red ones.

And the purple one

And the white one

Wish I had bought more packets of them, now I can't find them.

Viva La Verve sketch Challenge

Today's card is for the Viva La Verve February Challenge
Here is the sketch. Such a nice simple sketch to work with.

I decided to use flowers instead of ribbon for this one.

                                Papers are from Kaisercraft, floral and wording stamps are from Verve-
Love story and Great friends. The flourish is a felt flourish I found in the bottom of one
of my draws, also used Spellbinders circles and Lacey circles and a couple of pearls and some bling
 to finish it off.

And here is my card.

Thanks for stopping by.

A new year and new cards

Wow, two posts in one day!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a good start to the new year

Well, the holidays are over for another year so back to routine tomorrow. My girls have enjoyed their break but are well and truely ready to go back to school.
I was lucky enough to have three weeks holidays also. We went away for one week and the other two weeks were spent around home and I actually got into my craft room and made a heap of cards. 85 of them!

Working full time, I don't get in my craft room as often as I would like to and sometimes I just don't have any mojo, So if felt good to have a full day in the craft room to create.

Valentines Day is just around the corner. Here are a few simple cards to celebrate the occasion.

More cards for that special someone

                                                                          I love you

I have plenty more cards to share, so keep and eye out.

Scrap Jacked

Here is my first entry for the Aussie scrap jacked Challenge.
My inspiration for this card came from Julie's layout. I love the aqua blue and green color combination in her layout, it is so striking. Thanks for taking a look. :)
