Sweet Colours

Added Monday 21st May: I am so thrilled to be chosen as a Dynamic Darling over at the Dynamic Duos Challenges for this card. What a lovely bit of news to come back to after my weekend away! Thanks so much to the DD girls (& especially Kim) for their lovely encouragement!

Hi again bloggies!

It seems I am addicted! I have another challenge card today! 😀 😉 I can’t resist the new colour challenges over at Dynamic Duos! And … this week’s colours are so pretty together! I am a little low on b’day cards at the moment … the kids keep raiding my card box for cards!!! So … I thought I would do a pretty b’day card today!

I hadn’t done a scallop circle card in ages … and I don’t know why I don’t do them more often … they are sooooo pretty! (And a “wow” when they arrive in the mail!) I dragged out a favourite stamp set … that I also hadn’t used in a while … “Bliss”. A few little pearls and some soft sponging finished the card off really well. Super quick and easy!

Well … off shopping with my mum! This time last year we were in the middle of our crisis season … a 5 month period of one crisis after another! (My long time blog buddies will remember.) It is nice that life has quietened and is a lot more settled this year! Thank you, God! 😀

This is my second post today …. scroll down for my latest Cardabilities sketch DT sample! Have a lovely day! 😀

    Wow (again)….u r on such a creative roll Andrea. The combo and balance is beautiful. I have not got the scallop circle die in my stash (yet) but it is something always stashed in the back!! LOVE seeing Bliss again too.
    Enjoy the time with your Mum….Last year was a definite annus horribilis for you all. Out out the darkness came strenth and light lovely. Onwards and upwards. ooxx

    Another gorgeous card!
    Love the soft colours in this, with the lovely scallop circle.

    I’m so glad things are more settled than this time last year – I’m sure there are lots of “anniversaries”… like this is the first time that ….(whatever it is…)…. since ……
    I know it is coming up to the one year anniversary of the passing of your dad – seems like forever ago, and yet like yesterday all at the same time!

      Thanks Gabbi … for your sweet encouragement! Yes … 2nd June is 1 year … and so all the ‘firsts’ have almost passed. Mum is doing well now … much stronger and feeling better than she has in months! She is keeping herself occupied and is coping well! It is such a blessing! 🙂 Thanks for your thoughts! Hugs xxx
