Purple Wind Flower to say Thanks


Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends
I hope you are well and having a good week so far.

 My earliest card making memories are as a young child making cards for friends and family to thank them for Birthday and Christmas presents. I think that is where my love of crafting began.
So, as it is my Birthday tomorrow (and maybe I will be lucky enough to get a couple of pressies !!) I decided to be really organised for a change and made some really simple cards ready to write out.

As you know, I love making floral cards so I chose the gorgeous the Wind Flower (or Wind Anemone) from Janey’s Digi Designs. I layered up the biggest flower and shaped the petals with an embossing tool.


Items Used:
Digi Stamp  - Wind Flower  Janey's Digi Design coloured with Promarkers
Nellie Snellen Multi Frame die Doily Flower
Memory Box - Lorelai Leaf
Memory Box - little thanks available @ MCH
Impression Obsession Die - Butterfly set available @ MCH
Martha Stewart Medium Monarch Butterfly
Paper - Pink Petticoat Fairy Dots
pearls from stash

If you like floral cards then pop over to Janey's Digi Design Blog where you will be able to see loads of inspiration using Jane's gorgeous images.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

My mums Craft shop - dies,dies, dies!
Papertake Weekly - anything goes (optional shaped cards)
Bearly Mine - Dies and/or Punches
Polka Doodles - The Colour Purple
Heck of a Challenge - bingo (flowers/die cut or punch/pearls)


Thank you so much to each of you for taking the time to look at my blog today, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now
hugs

Donna Ellis said...

Oh! I could not HELP but smile - 95 comments on this card of yours, Sue! It is easy to see why. I have just spent a wonderful evening browsing your magnificent cards which I haven't been able to enjoy the past few weeks. Sue, you have SUCH a talent. No two cards resemble each other. Your pastels are always delicate and beautiful (I find it difficult working with pastels), and I always like your Wee Stamp cards - something so especially sweet about them. LOVE your hand made rolled flowers. I have not tried that yet, and really do want to do it. The choice of colors in your "just for you" card below are amazing - so soulful and soft, yet very strong at the same time. Your bee card is pure delight! Very sweet. I could go on, but then you and I would not get any crafting done. Thank you for always inspiring me. You are one of those special artists who makes me want to take my time with these fumble fingers in order to create something very pretty, rather than merely simple. Thank you for being you, Sue. hugs, de

Tracy said...

The soft lilac shades are so soothing on this card Sue. It's a beauty! Hugs!

My dear friend, firstly I want to wish you a Happy Sparkly (bee-lated) Birthday! I pray your special day was filled with as much love as you shower upon those who are blessed to know you. You are such a treasure to us in this crafty community. I hope you felt all of our love as you celebrated with your family. :o)

This card is as lovely as the memories of your earliest crafty adventures. I am not surprised that it was your kind spirit that encouraged your creativity back then! It is truly beautiful that you continue to show your gratitude when given a blessing. This card is beautiful. The flowers and butterflies are stunning and they look perfect atop that sweet doily. Marvelous as always, my dear Sue. I am so thankful for you!

Hugs and blessings!
