Midweek Reminder - Spring

 It's that time again...midweek reminder to let you know you have one more week to enter your fabulicious cards and projects to our Spring challenge on our Challenge Blog and can I say you've been mighty busy lol. 

I made a card for Sadie for Mother's Day as I always do. I've known her for about 27 years and she's been like a surrogate mom to me :-D Although she is registered blind (totally in one eye and periferal in the other) she said she loved it and was the best one yet lol. Let me know what you think...

I think when I PS'd the image I over exposed it a bit as it's much brighter and sunnier IRL. Ladybug Laurie made a gorgeous scalloped circle card here and I thought I would have a go. Not really the best idea at 10 pm on the night before I'm going to see Sadie :-S After a bit of a fiddle I thought I got the proportions right...until I tried to find an envelope to fit it lol. Another one of those OOPS! moments!! Didn't think she'd notice the brown envelope ... did she heck...of course she did so it's white envelopes for Sadie from now on ;-D

After I coloured up the image and finished the card I realized I hadn't released it...oops!!! It was too late to start again so The Three Vases is now available to buy in the Floral Delight Too collection on the website

I found a jute flower I'd made a while back so used it under a rolled flower adding a pearl to the center.

The sparkle on these vases is off the charts! I used Glossy Accents then sprinkled Glamour Dust liberally over top and added a pearl to the center of the flowers.

So there you have it...hope you like it as much as Sadie did :-D

Wonderful card for Sadie Kerry. Who wouldn't love it.

Julie said...

This did make me laugh Kerry, I was trying so hard to read the post but my head was elsewhere trying to place whether this stunner was from FD 1 or FD2! When I got to the end I discovered it was neither! Fabulous card! I'm forever having to doctor large envelopes to fit these dies, my mum wouldn't have gone for the brown either lol! X

I think the same as Sadie, it is fabulous, love the shape of the card and the fabulous image, with all the glitter, as far as I am concerned, forget the bears, bring on the new flower releases, had a sneak peak of another one a few weeks ago, I think you are teasing me.

Super cute although I laughed repeatedly. LOVE the card; particularly that flower - is that burlap underneath? I need some!! Cute image - made me giggle it hasn't been released yet...well, it is now! :D

And not having an envelope that it fits - SO GET THAT!!! LOL Been there, done that; regardless, it's super cute!

Jane said...

Good morning Kerry, I am catching up on my blog posts whilst having a tea break at home. What a gorgeous cheerful card you made for Sadie. I love the flower detail, super cute. Looking forward to the new release, that Billie is a little cutie. Take care, xxxxx

Really nice card I saw your card on MIM. Had to take a closer look and love it. Love the rolled flower (I have this die and hardly use it because I can never get it to roll right) love your flower, love the glitter on the vases. This whole card is wonderful.

Heide said...

This is just the sweetest card. Love the flowers in the vases and your burlap and paper flowers too. Saw you on MIM.
Hugs, Heide
