3 cards!

Hello, my dearios!

Well, we're back from our holibobs in North Shropshire! We were very lucky with the weather and had a very relaxing week. I read a couple of books by a new author, J M Alvey, they are murder mysteries set in Classical Athens and they are so very good! The first is 'Shadows of Athens' and I recommend them highly!

Since returning I have slowly got back into the usual routine, but I took some time out from the post-holiday washing and ironing to make some cards. Does anyone else find they have to schedule their cardmaking activities amongst all the weekly work?

I used items from the Love from Lizi September card kit, which included a lot of ephemera in gorgeous colours. The kit is sold out, but I may be able to give you an idea of how to use ephemera from other brands. I apologise for the wonky photos!

The frame is popped up on foam tape and the striped paper is pearlised. The sentiment is made with a Clearly Besotted die. The glitter stickers come from my stash.

I gold-embossed a leaf stamp from the kit onto the pinky-brown background paper. The sentiment is cut with a die that came with the kit and a snippet of gold mirri card.

The sequins for this shaker card came with the kit, too, as did the orange card I used as a matt.

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Thanks for looking!

Glad you enjoyed your holiday. Love these cards Mags, really lovely. I very rarely get time to craft these days with my S A work.
