Happy Bank Holiday!!!

Last day of rest for the children today we have to send them back to school tomorrow. Awww I think we will miss all the noise and our days out as a family lots and lots xxx I have lots to do next week. I have to go to a meeting at my daughters new secondary school, Jimmy has a check up with Ear, Nose and Throat, I have to vote in the referendum, and I have a meeting about my daughters first ever school trip!!! There is lots more to do I am sure!!!

Here is a card I have made today using my wonderful Cricut machine which I must admit was a great purchase I only wish I could affort an cricut create,expression or imagine. Anyhow I have been able to expand my creative abilities heaps with this little beauty. I have recently purchased some Doflex to make my own embossing folders and templates so cannot wait for that to arrive.

I have made this card for two challenges the CES Challenge which has an amazing photo inspiration to follow. The second challenge is the Fantabulous Cricut Monday Challenge who would like to see 3 or more flowers on your card or project.

So how did I make my card. I used some Websters Pages DP's that I brought on their website digitally. I then decided to go for a quilted feel as the photo is of a bedroom. I used my Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge to create a layer of cream card with floral cutouts to go ontop of the red Websters pages DP. I then added some gingham ribbon to the border. I adhered to the blue Websters pages DP and faux stitched around the edges. The sentiment is from Hunkydory. I then made the rose flowers (George and Basic shapes) and the leaves (Straight from the nest). Finally I added some stickles (a bit of a favourite on all my cards at the moment). Excuse me for being impatient and not letting the glue dry before I took my picture xxx

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale
