Pattie's Creations Challenge #90 - Easter

My prize from Core'dinations has arrived and I received a
lovely surprise at all the goodies I received.  I now have enough
cards, envelopes, tags and cardstock for a long time to come!  It
certainly is worthwhile taking part in Core'dinations challenges.

I have added a link to Free Digital on my
sidebar - a new free scrapbooking kit is given
every week, and you can use them commercially if
you link back to them.

Time at Pattie's Creations for Challenge #90 - Easter.
A Happy Easter to all those celebrating this holiday.

Do take part in this challenge - just take note that you
should include any Digital or Stamped Image on your
creation! Stop on over to Pattie's ETSY Shop and have a look
at her many images. Don't forget to check out the Freebie First
Friday of the Month page. The Freebie will be available for
3 days, and then it will be removed from the site!
The challenge starts now and ends Thursday, April 24th
at 1PM CST (Central Standard Time).

More Guy Cards

I've been a bit quiet here because I have been busy.
I had to prepare for a bazaar and then bf had a visit
from his daughter and we traveled to Jerusalem for
a few days. We stayed at a lovely boutique hotel
called Mount Zion, which has beautiful views
over the Old City.   

Hooray, I won first prize on Sami Stamps Challenges
with the 'green' challenge, so now I can have some
fun choosing some digital images.  I really love her
style of drawing.

Do visit Pattie's Creations Challenge (I am on one
of her DT's) - the latest challenge is "Fancy Folds'
and the DT have done some lovely cards for this

Following are some of the guy cards I have made
recently.  I am not writing any details on them of
materials used, but if anyone has a question, I shall
be only too happy to answer them. The last two
images are from CD's I have. The sailing boat I
have is on a decoupage sheet, but I don't have
the name of the artist. (Now I note all the artists).

A Quick And Easy Birthday Card

This card couldn't be any easier or quicker to make - I can take 
a LOT of time getting a card made.  Do take a look at the blog of
Catherine Pooler - you will certainly get inspiration from there.
Now I am looking at my card, I see that I could have embossed
one of the pieces - that would have been nice too.  This design
lets you use up pieces of paper you have left over - and like me,
I'm sure you all have lots of bits and pieces!

Pattie's Creations Challenge #86 - Spots or Dots

Had laryngitis for over a week - missed a family party
for the birthday of one of my grandchildren, and couldn't
be there for my bf who is after a big back op.  But
things are looking up now, I can speak! 

Time for another challenge at Pattie's Creations. 
This card is going to my granddaughter who I
mentioned above - I shall just add her name and
age, and I hope she likes it.
