No sharp edges!

Today our challenge at International Art and Soul is Nothing Square or Oblong. So, lets see all those beautiful cards using Circles or Ovals or Unusual Shapes.  Head on over to the blog and check out the fabulous ideas my team mates have come up with.

For my card I dug out my Spellbinders Grand Circles and the Decorative Circles. I love these large dies and I wish they had made a few more. However, I have used the largest of the Decorative Circles as my base and folded and creased well across the centre/ The stripes layer is another from this set and and the pale pink layer is the smallest die in the set.  I have used a sheet from the Hunkydory's Little book of Cakes and Bakes as my centrepiece. Its perfect as Lily is three in a couple of weeks time. Her name was cut out using the Spellbinders Art Nouveau font set and threes of flowers, pearls and gems.

If you pop by, please let me know and I'll come visit you too.

Cards, Cards, Cards!

I've been away from my blog again and it's time for me to do a catchup.

First of all, let me show the two cards made for the International Art and Soul blog.

The Challenge No 32 theme was for Interactive.  Now this theme always baffles me as to what to make. I decided to make up a card from  Hunkydory's Art Deco kit. I love this kit and reach for it when I just can't think of what to make. It's interactive because the lovely bookmark can be used after.

The current challenge at INTAAS is All About Boys and Men.  After a smashing visit to Ally Pally last month I borrowed a lovely Sue Wilson Steampunk die from my sis-in-law. I was asked to make a card for a gentleman who was going to celebrate his 60th birthday. I made two cards to show.

This one 

we sent but the chosen card from the brief I was given I haven't taken a photo of, BLAST!

A couple of others:-  this one was for a special little girl who celebrated her eighth birthday at the beginning of May.

 And two cards made for Red Hat friends.

Please let me know if you have been with a comment, I'd love to here from you.  I have lots of visitors but I haven't a clue who they are.

See you in a week or two, fingers crossed that life doesn't get in the way!
