Just for You . . . . .

What a busy Thursday I have had, don't know where the day went. I am desperately trying to complete  a project I started ages ago, will reveal in due course, but just can't seem work out how I want to finish it.  Ah well I will play around and eventually it will come to fruition. I am also making a card for the birth of my niece's grandson who is on his way today but the way things are going it may be tomorrow.

The card today was created when I decided to have a play with card, embelishments and dies I had to hand.


I know I used
Creative Expression Foundation card in Black (I know it looks Navy Blue but it is black)
Two Spellbinders Persian Accents for the border down the left hand side
Spellbinders Labels twenty three
The flowers, butterfly, sentiment and gold pattenerd card came from a kit I bought from Kanban
( it took me ages to use it as I liked looking at it, stupid but thats me)
Pearls (did not know at the time about the Cosmic Shimer PVA glue that could be used, still not mastered that yet but will keep trying)
I am posting this on Thursday night as I have a busy day ahead tomorrow (Friday) especially first thing in the morning and I just love reading your comments as you all know I am relatively new to card making and blogging.
Have a wonderful day and take care especially you Jenny L after your misfortune with your car.

  1. Lovely card Wilma. Like the borders used down the side. I do exactly the same with lovely cards and papers. Buy them and decide they are too nice to use! We are so silly aren't we? Anyway, glad you managed to force yourself!! love from Christine x

  2. Good Morning Wilma,
    Well!!! you have done it once again, another stunning card.
    Glad you got round to cutting into that stock, it a bit of a Trauma is it not???
    Hope you are not too busy to craft later...........I really enjoy seeing your work.
    Have a Great Day

  3. Good Morning Wilma, At first glance I thought it was a baby shoe, it is a great card and I love the detail. xx Flora

  4. Wilma this is a beautiful card. Love the way you have used the two sets of persian accents down the side of the card. Every crafter seems to have the same problem with paper - you buy it because it is lovely and then you hoard it and cannot bring yourself to cut into it. You are definitely not alone in this.

  5. Hi Wilma,
    well what a beauty of a card. Love the Persian border down the side.
    I thought it was a new die till I read your card recipe, and took a closer look again. Wonderful idea the design. Your right it does look navy in the photo. I bet it's even better when you can see it in the black, but that's computers for you.
    Thank you for your good wishes, the car is back together fine. The nice man from Autoglass arrived at just after 8 this morning.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
