Three new cards!



























One of my work colleagues is sick so I spent this morning making this card for her, sorry about the picture quality only its quite dark here today and this is the best I can get.  As you can see lots of paper piecing with the HA flowers and leaves so I will add this as another entry to the Lily Pad Paper challenge. I managed to use up lots of scraps of paper for this card but my basket is still overflowing!!!



I also wanted to share with you two cards I have made using some fabulous wine labels that the lovely Jacqueline was kind enough to send to me.  Her son visited a wine cave in France and spotted them in the bin, he asked if he could have them and luckily they said yes, now after Jacqueline's kindness lots of ladies in the flickr group are having fun creating with them!




The paper the labels are made of is really high quality and stamping and distressing them gives fabulous results.

Hope you are all having a great week, I am looking forward to the weekend when I will be visiting a large craft show not far from here.  I go every year and usually manage to get lots of new supplies, I can't wait.....

Your card for your sick colleague is stunning as are your two wine labels. I haven't started using mine yet... but my thoughts were running to butterflies too. Love the pink and blue one. How clever to sued two background stamps together.

If my scrap basket were ever empty, I'd just...I don't know, probably keel over in shock! lol
I love the Get Well card, especially with the lovely pearl centres on those flowers, and the wine labels are really a unique & fun thing to play with!
I'm looking forward to hearing about your fun at the craft show :)
