My First Award

I have a bit of housekeeping to do first before getting down to crafty things.

I have received my very first award from Kate T which is another blogging milestone. Thanks Kate I really appreciate it.

There is also some awesome Blog Candy up for grabs on a wonderful blog, Passion for Crafts which is definitely worth checking out.

Right, all the important things done I have only got one card to share with you tonight. Nice weather equals time in the garden and not so much crafting for me, although I will try and get a bit done tonight.

This card was done using peels offs. I have a whole box of them which only seems to come out when I need a greeting so I tried to use some of the others.

This was a nice modern image and I painted it with H20's which I love, they always seem to give such a rich creamy colour with a lovely lustre.

I used peel offs for the greeting and for the little corner accents and then matted with plain pink card. The backing paper was DCWV from the pocket full of posies stack which matched the peel off flowers perfectly.

From looking at everyone elses lovely cards I think I am a bit too conservative with the layout of mine, I tend to be more adventurous with scrapbooking so my intention is to try some of the sketches out there for card making. I will let you know what happens.

It's lovely Lisa, I have loads of peel-offs too and never use them unless I need a specific image. May dig them out now that I've seen this....

Thanks for dropping by, Lisa, I am impressed with your blog. I have to confess to being a peel off snob but I have to say you have almost persuaded me to give them another go.
