I'm on a Roll!!

Don't you just love it when things come together without much effort on your part - well, that is how I feel about the last few 'Quadruple Challenge Cards' I have been doing - i just start something and then 'wha-la', they fit into all these challenges - it really gives you a sense of satisfaction and a false sense of achievement!!!!

Then on top that that - I can't believe I have made another card the Stamping for the Weekend Challenge....I didn't think I would have enough purple but after digging into the DEEP recesses of Craft Central, I found some more purple, a soft mauve....so you never know what you have unless you look!!

The truth is that when I was looking to do a second card I got two images out and couldn't decide which one to do...so did one and then finished this one off this morning. Hence a third card...
It is also for the CCEEC where one of my Twisted Sisters Dawn (aka flowergal36) is the Stamper with the catchy name that they are honouring this month - so flowers are required on a card...we all know Dawn loves flowers AND Magnolias are another specialty of hers - this gorgeous image is thanks to my friend Melinda80 - thanks Mel!!!

The third Challenge is the 2RedBananas where we are to use three different DP's...and I have...the mauve lightly spotted DP, the patterned yellow strip and the darker purple which is both textured and patterned....the last challenge is for the Creative Card Crew where a Child's card is the go - so I have bundled all of those challenges up into this one card!!

I have chalked the image and added Kindy Glitz to the wings and layered in onto purple DP. I have used yellow DP and and the SU Eyelet Border Punch, added some paper piercing, layering it on textured purple DP and added sheer ribbon which had been threaded through a flower and knotted! Other flowers were added along with a Die Cut Flourish and finally a sentiment with added bling!!

I have to laugh when I look at this photo - I decided to venture outside into the cold so I would get better lighting - what happens - it starts to rain - then the wind comes up! So I found a sheltered spot and saw these lemons and I thought they would look good next to the card, being yellow and all....and they do...until you turn them over and they are all rotten and the worms and bugs have eaten the whole lot of the other side out - but they look good for the photo - isn't that what counts!!!

Thank you for visiting and for all of the encouraging comments you have been leaving - I love knowing you have dropped by and look forward to you coming back!! God bless you!

  2. Well what can I say Linda.......your third masterpiece in one week.....Can you keep it up though?...lol It's another beautiful card, love all the details of the flowers and the swirl and of course your punched border. Your story of the weather and lemons made me laugh. I tried to look really close at those lemons.
