Finally something to post!

I can't believe I haven't had anything to post for so long, I've just not had too much energy for anything much lately, plus my chemo side-effects are really making my hands so cold that I have to wear gloves most of the time - made even worse by our colder weather here! Finally though, I've managed to have some crafty time and made two cards!

This one uses a Stamp-It dress image which was just crying out to be paper-pieced! I used some papers from Kaisercraft's Madame Boutique paper pad, I just love these colours! Finished it off with a bit of chocolate satin ribbon, some flowers and a chocolate 'Sprinkle' by Annabelle Stamps, the base card is Stampin' Up and the greeting by Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I used this week's sketch FTL195 from Clean & Simple blog and the theme from Annabelle Stamps - Say It With...... Paper Piecing.

My second card is fairly simple, I used some printed vellum as my background, die-cut a Cheery Lynn butterfly from the same vellum, dry embossed some black cardstock with an Asian design Cuttlebug folder, used a greeting by Vicky Enkoff and added a bit of bling with an Annabelle Stamps 'Sprinkle"

I'm entering this card for CAS-ual Fridays Clear as Day challenge and Less Is More challenge - Something Shiny.

Thanks for stopping by today and hopefully I'll be back soon with something new!
