Hinged Card

Thanks you all for your kind comments on my last card "Connies 5th Birthday".  I had not posted a card for such a long time I did not know how it would be viewed as it was an image I used before.  There were variations on this card and I was pleased how it worked out.  Have not heard from Connie's mum yet, she was to let me know if the card was OK and I would finish it off properly.

Today I had a try with the hinged cards and I feel they would be ideal for making up a set of Christmas cards to put in a box and make up as a set.  Or I can just make a few and add to my box in case a card is required quickly.  They are so cute, I am used to 8 x 8 cards so these look tiny to me  I will get used to them

The weather has been great over the last week and I have made to most of sitting in the garden enjoying it, walking the dogs when I have been able to drag them out, they hate the warm weather, as a result not much crafting done. 
I now feel my Mojo has returned mainly due to all the encouragement I have received from you all and I may get stuck in and make a few projects I have been planning over the last few weeks.  I have seen so many things while browsing all your blogs that my hands just want to try everything.
I forgot to welcome my new followers, so welcome and I hope you enoy my humble attempts at card making etc.
Well that's it for tonight ladies and gents take care and look forward to more gorgeous creations.

  12. Gorgeous card Wilma. I rarely make great big cards 6 X 6 or 7 x 5 are my usual but I do like the hinged cards and have made quite a few. My colouring is very hit and miss - sometimes great, other times absolute rubbish!! I guess I need to practice an awful lot more! But I think pre-coloured images are fine. Love from Christine xx

  13. beautiful card Wilma, love that image you have used, those dies make an amazing card,

  14. Hi Wilma, sorry Im behind but my phone hadn't updated your photo so I didn't realise you had posted. . . . .technology huh?
    Pretty card. I don't do colouring full stop so I doff my cap to anyone who does so Im sure your own colouring is fine. Glad your moJo is back. x


  15. Wilma I am sorry I thought I had left a comment on this card, love these style of cards and make up with so many different images. Great colouring in.
