Lots of Crafting

 Hi Friends! I've been recuperating from a nasty respiratory virus, which exacerbated my Asthma and I'm finally feeling much better.  I retreated to our Beach House and I've had absolutely no responsibilities for the last few days so I've been crafting to my hearts content, in between walks, reading and binging on Netflix.  

Here are a few cards I enjoyed making...

First of all I would like to remind you about our current challenge at CAS Mix Up, where the theme is 'Things with Wings' using watercolour.

Stamp & Die : Pinkfresh Studio Songbirds on Branch


I used some leftovers from the previous card to make this CAS card for a couple of challenges.
Stamp: Pinkfresh Studio Songbirds on Branch; Darkroom Door Butterfly
Die: Pinkfresh Studio Songbirds on Branch
Embossing Folder: Stampin Up


This card was inspired by the metallic theme at SIEZE THE BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE:-

This is the same embossing folder and the gorgeous flower die is SSS Etched Layered Daisy.
I swiped Delicata Gold Ink over the white card stock and embossed panel, colouring the flower to match - it's very shimmery!
The next card was inspired by the CAS theme at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE...

The gorgeous flowers were stamped and coloured with Karin Markers. 
Stamp: Altenew Pen Sketched Flowers
Dies: Spellbinders


I'm sharing my cards at the following challenges:-

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. Each card is absolutely beautiful, Jenny! I am so sorry you have been under the weather and hope you are feeling much better by now. As for your cards, looks like time well spent. I truly love them all. The daisy card that you entered for Seize the Birthday is lovely in tan and white! What an great post! Thanks for playing along with us.

    1. Thanks Nancy:) It's actually gold, not tan, to match the metallic theme.

  2. I'm so happy you are starting to feel better and were up for making cards, Jenny! Each one is so unique and beautiful. I LOVE those songbirds with the textured cad stock. Really makes them look like they have feathers! Goregous flowers and butterfly, lovely large daisy card and gorgeous pink flowers with black bakground ... so amazing! xx
