Daring Cardmakers - Prickly Summer

Hello everyone and welcome to another Friday challenge from the team over at Daring Cardmakers.

Miri is our host this week and has picked a theme called Prickly Summer.  You have to use a cactus or cacti on your cards this week.

This weekend here in our local town to kick off the summer they have a huge music festival called Les Vielles Charrues.  Its a bit like Glastonbury and a few top news will be performing.  My Mother In Law has opened her house up to guests and they even have people arriving for the festival all the way from Canada.  Its very exciting.

So back to business and our weekly challenge.

I created a pretty girlie cactus card using a die from Spellbinders.

I used some cactus paper that I had in my stash and picked out the colours to use for the pots.  So I used the colour combination of pink and green.

I then finished the card off with a stamped greeting.

Thanks for stopping by today and please check out the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.

Christmas in July Part 2

Hello everyone.  I have another quick and easy Christmas in July project to share with you.

This one also uses the Making Christmas Bright set but this time I have used a little designer series paper.

Again I have tried to make the card simple and easy to do as I tend to get board especially when I have so many to make.  Its easier to have a quick design idea.

I just made a little topper first then added some strips of designer series paper down the side.

I kept the colour combination the same as the previous card in real red, shaded spruce and smoky slate.  I really like this combination.  I love the traditional feel to it but instead of the smoky slate you could add a little silver embossing which would look extra pretty.

Don't forget that Bonus Days have started and if you spend over 60 euros/ £45 you will receive a coupon code to spend in August for 6 euros/ £4.50.

Thanks for stopping by today.
