A Couple of Cards

Hi everyone hope you've had a good day. Well I had a good crafting weekend, haven't done that in a while.

My first card is for Sarah Kay Challenge - 3 Buttons + 3 Gems.

I decided to go outside my comfort zone on this one - no girlie colours , lol And as I'd picked up these papers a while ago but never used them I thought it was about time I did. They're by K & Co brought at my local craft shop, not something I would have brought 3 months ago, but been trying new things lately - if you hadn't noticed, lol

The cute little charms you'll find at Krafty Crafts and yes I used my lace again, I know Im addicted, lol but i did add a little pink ribbon too, wanted to bring out the pink in the papers, added this right at the last minute but not sure it goes well with the buttons now. Oh well that'll teach me to chance things last minute without thinking about it, lol



My second card is for Tilda + Co Challenge that have a fab Sketch this week and a wonderful prize too, be sure to check it out.

The cute Tilda was kindly sent to me by a very good friend - thanks Tracy x



The new lace I picked up today in Hobby Crafts, I can't believe that I didn't realise they sell lace, lol. The lace I normally use I brought in a shop near my mums and she live over 80 miles away, so Im sure you'll understand my joy when I managed to pick some up today in HC and I brought 4 different types - I know Im addicited, lol

Have a great week everyone, TFL x

  23. Lovely cards! I am twitching here, might need to run down to the market. I saw a stall that has lovely trims and laces on it and I might have to start using some. I resisted last week but now I might just have to give in! It looks great on your cards.
