LIM Challange - Week 42 - theme

Morning everyone, I could not believe it when I looked at the LIM blog and saw "Silhouettes"

I had been playing around with these die cuts only yesterday. No 1 Card is Black and White, No 2 White and Black. A6 card the top ones are mounted using Pinflair Glue, just added a few black/white gems to outline the dress. Hope they fit the criteria.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last week card. All comments are welcome.

Off to shop see you later.

LIM Challange Week 41 - one layer - Leaves

Morning from a lovely day in the Loire, Tee Shirt weather, butterflies are still flying around and we even have a cornflower out and little purple violets just showing. My card this week reminds me of all the Poplar Tree leaves we have around us. They are grown as a crop here for use later to make the wooden apple and fruit crates.

I cut a strip of spare card and using my punches made a design, I taped it to the card and masked off the other area and used Tim Holtz distressed inks in Autum colours. I embossed two lines and stamped a small "Thinking of you" sentiment.

Thank you for last weeks comments on my card (not my best effort). Enjoy the rest of the weekend

LIM Challange Week 40 - Colours Red and Orange

Liquiamber (Red Oak)

Chrysanths Bed

Good Morning everyone, as I mentioned in my last weeks post about my Chrysanths I thought you would like to have a look at them. The first photo is a Liquiamber (Red Oak) we have several planted and I thought the colour fitted in very well with this weeks theme. The middle is a close up of the bush pink chrysanths and the last one is the bed itself. We counted about 160 plants. I keep picking them for flowers in the house, as we cann't see the bed from the house.

My card this week reminds me of them. A6 red pearlescant card, I punched and used distressed ink Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade on white, added a border I found on google and an orange gingham narrow ribbon and bow.

Have a good weekend
