Home is Where the Heart is - Dies to Die for DT card


Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you are well, sending more hugs to those in need of them.

Thank you for your all your kind wishes. Emily had a wonderful birthday on Thursday and I am pleased to say that Holly did exceptionally well in her A Levels which means that she can go the the University of her choice which is a big relief. Yes, we are so proud of her.

Anyway, I have 2 cards to share today so I had better let get on with it!
First up is my DT card for Dies to Die for.
I was sent some gorgeous papers made by Simple Stories and decided to make a card using them without using any stamps. The papers have been cut with  Die-Namics Blueprints 12 and 13 and the beautiful flower is the wonderful Die-Namics Gerbera Daisy. I love this flower so you may be seeing a lot more of it in future!



Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my first card on the day. I will be back later with my DT card for A Gem of a Challenge.
Bye for now

Milestone Birthdays at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge

Good Morning my lovely friends.
I hope you are well and having a good week. Sending hugs to those in need of them.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last card, you are all too kind and your support means so much to me.

Our theme this week set by the lovely Jane is 
Milestone Birthdays

For this challenge we are sponsored by
 Letraset - Prize pack of Flexmarkers
and
A Day for Daisies - Prize $12 Voucher

Fortunately, I needed to make a 40th Birthday card so I used a stylish image from DigiStamp Boutique.

I must apologise for my poor quality photos, my colouring looks really flat although in real life the dress and hair are shaded. Maybe I should start borrowing my hubby's camera!
I have used Wink of Stella glitter on her eye shadow and the champagne.



Side view shows the colours better!
