Challenge # 46 Food and Drink Cardz 4 guyz


Hi,
This card is for the Food and Drink Challenge over at Cardz4Guyz blog,  I made this card a few weeks ago and never finished it off so it was really a good choice for this challenge.  Most men like a pint of beer so I thought this was a good choice.
I used an image from Klever Konstruction on the shelf Once in a lifetime Volume one,
 I matted the image onto cream card and with gold peel off's around the outside,  and the backing paper that went with the image.   I white ribbon down the side, not sure if men's cards need any ribbon but I like to finish them off with something.  My photography has worked out a bit pale,  Wednesday it would have needed the flash as it was dull and dark all day yesterday the sun is shinning so I took the picture before the weather changes again.
Have a nice day and until we meet again Take care
                             Hugs

P is for............... CD Sunday Challenge


Hi,
P is for.............  Pansies
This is the CD Sunday Challenge P is for...... well I choose an image from a new CD I was given for my birthday One Summers Day by Joanna Sheen.  I must say this is a lovely CD with some lovely images.
I used the Pansy image, matted it onto silver card,  and then decoupage it with one of the others on the sheet,  it fitted perfectly.  I used the backing paper that went with the image.  I added the green  ribbon and the With Love from the same image sheet.
At last the sun is shinning here after days of damp, dull and foggy days.
Hope you have a nice day

Hooray Finished at Last, My Tatted Hankie


Hi,
This is my take with me project,   its stays with me and when I get time where ever I am usually waiting for Hospital appointments for myself or Vernon,  I do a bit.
At last its finished,   its a pale pink hankie and the edging I did was tatted in Altin Basak thread (Turkish thread) no 50 white,  the pattern I used is from Renulek's snowflake mat,  Its so pale I found it hard to photo this is a close up of the pattern.
Hope you like it.
Until we meet again Take Care

Happy Birthday Vernon


Hi,

Today is Vernon's Birthday (my Hubby)  this is the card I made for him,   Oh why are Men's cards so hard,
We had a to go out this afternoon,  the wind has dropped and although its cloudy and for a change its not raining,  what is left on the trees as way of leaves are turning nicely into shades of gold and bronze,  its a pity the bad weather we had over the last few weeks has ruined the Autumn colours.
Anyway this is a Kanban Image I brought sometime ago I matted it onto a stripped sheet of brown card. The backing sheet which was free with my magazine a few months ago,  of  embossed wild grasses,  I think it goes well with the bird image.  I cut the card in half so the front is split and opens up to reveal more of the backing paper,   should have taken a picture of it open too,    and finished it off with gold ribbon,
He liked it so I hope you do too.
Hope you are having a nice day
                                 Hugs

Two Antique Brooches


Hi,
Another day of damp foggy weather at least its still mild here,  Hope you are having a nice weekend.
Today I have two brooches which I brought in the market last month,  I have used white no 20 Lizbeth thread on both the top one has gold seed  and crystal beads.  The pink rose one I have put gold seed beads,  neither needed a lot of enhancements in tatting,  I think I got them just about right.
 
I have another two to do I have enjoyed doing both of these, I hope you like them too.
Until we meet again Take Care
                              Hugs
