Hello Bloggers, I'm sorry for not having anything new to look at if you've visited lately. I seem to be working flat out but not accomplishing very much.

Below are three cards I made for FatCats Card Corner .


I have cut small rectangles of three different papers and distressed around them with London fog Memento ink, my plan was to make it look like a patchwork quilt.
I then cut a strip of the same card stock and used the border folder first along one edge then the other.
The pretty leaves are the Flutter Vine Memory Box die


For this one I used the Crafters Workshop Chicken wire stencil (meant to represent a fishing net), and then embossed over it with the Fiskars texture plate Ocean.
I used the Marianne Creatables Lighthouse and Sea Shells to make my shaker card and used some sand from my grand daughters sandpit when they were little.
Some self-adhesive plaster board jointing tape, a self adhesive pearl swirl and  eyelets in the corners.  


For this card I used the Couture Creations Victorian embossing Folder and swiped over it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
The window is a Cheery Lynn Die.
Leaves are Marianne Creatables Leafy Stem
Flowers I made with the Marianne Craftable Circle Die
The butterflies are from a Stamp-It stamp set..


My last card is one I made from an idea Angie saw in a magazine which was to separate your two layers with some sort of swirl.
I used a quickkutz branches die and added some flowers made with a small Sakura punch and a Punch bunch mini asterix for the centres.
The corners were cut with the Martha Stewart String Lace Punch.

Thank you for taking the time to come and visit.
