DT Card for Challenge at Ruby's Rainbow ..

and this week it's Pink and favourite combination at the moment! I do admire all my friends who seem to make so many cards during the week.I have to confess that by the time evening comes I usually only have the energy to float through blogland. However I do plan and design them at all hours of the day...and's amazing how many cards I make in my sleep!

The lace is from my Mum's stash...I am off on another visit in a few weeks time and hope to bring somemore back in my case. I now fly with another airline purely for the extra luggage space!

Love....John 3:16...

is one of my favourite bible verses...and I just wanted to use it on this card.

It took me ages to work out how to get the correct combination for the die cuts but I eventually got the effect I was after...and it is one of those cards that I enjoy looking at.

Now I have the prototype it is a card I will put in my `quickie` box and then I can adapt it for so many occasions...Sympathy, Get Well, Thank yous, as well as Birthdays etc ..all in different colours.

Card Supplies:
Image - Digi Doodle Shops Best.
Centre cut using X cut and BigShot.

Red, White and Blue...

for this Men's card.
The girls at the card class are always asking for inspiration for Men's cards.I don't find them particularly troublesome...I just prefer making ¨pretty¨ cards.

I bought a piece of wrapping paper ages ago which had 3 images and this is one of them...sadly I have now used it all up but it lasted for ages, one of my crafting bargains I think!

I love motor bikes and have always regretted not having the spare cash to have one....but who knows what the future brings...I can't win the Lottery though because I don't do it.

On a more serious note it has been quite a hard week at the Reachout Centre...I did a home visit on Monday that was very is so sad seeing how people have to live when hard times prevent them from working etc. The poor man is collecting cardboard to take to a recycling centre to try and raise money to help provide for his baby who is waiting for an operation on its brain...sobering times. I thank God every day for His goodness and His compassion.

Card Supplies:
Card - Ollie Doodles, Costa Blanca.
Backing paper - stash.
Raffia - Casa.
Sentiment circle cut using Spellbinders and BigShot.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.

Ruby's Rainbow Challenge Design card...

features one of my passions this week....chocolate.

As soon as I saw these Kanban images I knew I had to have them...they are also in my favourite colours at the and brown. Yes I know I did another pink and brown card a few weeks ago but what can I say!!!

Actually this card is quite similar to that other one. I showed it to my card class girls and they wanted to make one so this is the version they will be attempting next Friday. I love the thought of the comments as they try to tie the doublebow!!!

I hope you have had a wonderful Easter...the service this morning at church was so thought provoking ...imagine Jesus dying to save each one of

My sewing machine hates me...

but I was determined to have a go at sewing on a card....and this is my first effort.

Actually all sewing machines hate me...and I hate sewing which is rather strange as my Mother was a trained tailoress...she used to design and make wonderful creations. I love knitting, cross stitch etc but not sewing. I think my aversion came because if I wanted to sew anything Mum always made me use a pattern, measure it, chalk the pleats, pin it, tack it and then sew it...I was always too eager to see the finished article.

However a couple of weeks ago we had one of those little diddy sewing machines come into the Reachout shop.....and the rest is history. I showed this card to the card class and they are all going to have a go on their 'proper' machines!!

Card Supplies:
Card Blank and other card: Ollie Doodles,Costa Blanca.
DP . Papermania Boysenberry.
Butterfly : Marianne Die and BigShot.
Patterned card : Craft Creations.
