Charisma Cardz Challenge No. 21


How you all keeping? Its a beautiful day down here in Kent and what a better thing to do on sunny day than to let you know the new challenge over at Charisma Cardz Challenges.

This weeks theme is
Going Dotty So, please, go dotty in any way you want to this week!!!

Here is my card:

I have not put a sentiment on the front yet as I am not sure what one I want on there. I got the idea of the flower after browsing videos on You Tube - how fab is that to be able to see how to do stuff on the web?!!!

  • DCWV paper
  • Ribbons x 7
  • Large button
This was a very simple and easy card to make, but I am quite happy with how it turned out - think ribbon flowers are going to be what I keep doing now lol!!! Hope to see you over at Charisma.

The best paper trimmer?

Hello all you lovely people in blog land!

Was wondering if you could give me more advice? I am after a new trimmer for my paper as my one is absolutely rubbish. Just wondering whether any of you had a good one you could recommend?

Saw a purple cow one in town today for £50 - is it worth spending that much money. Don't mind, as long as its good.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Simple Flower Card

Morning all

Sorry for my lack of card making - I am seriously having withdrawal symptoms!!

Anyway, I was asked to make a simple design card with 3 flowers on it...well I had just the thing in mind, am quite impressed with the way it turned out.

I just took different sizes of paper, distressed the edges, stuck 'em together, added a button and hey presto, there are my flowers! I used a cuttlebug embossing thingy-me-jig to do the stems - how easy was that?

Nothing like an easy card!
