Card making

Wednesday after lunch (& a wee bit for the house shopping - more on that later) Haylee & I spent some time in the scrap room creating. Haylee finished 4 or 5 8X8" Lo's (she lost count)and I started making cards.

5 of these cards -Praying for you, You make me smile, Smile, God loves you & Lotsa hugs - were made using this tutorial for quilted cards from Nina's blog Crafting in Croatia . I love how simple and quick these cards were. The other cards were using left over papers and a few different punches.

All cards were made with Basic grey patterned papers and all but 2 - Congrats and With Love - were made with BG's Sugared range including the die cut chipboard shapes.

The messages on the cards were simply made by typing up several messages and printing them on patterned papers.

I am really happy with how the cards turned out now all I need to do is remember to send some on.

In fact I owe a PIF (pay it forward) that I received from Cass's blog sometime ago (where did the time go) so the first 3 people who leave a comment on THIS post who are prepared to play along with the pay it forward scheme (you will need to make something to send onto someone else) will receive 4 of my cards. Please make sure you leave away for me to contact you.

After receiving one of your lovely cards with my latest FQ swap I decided to look at some more. Very surprised that I'm leaving the 3rd comment about these :O!
