Trio of Cards!

Hello Everyone, Friday again and I hope you are well and having a good day.

We have had some lovely Spring like weather over the last few days, just lovely although a little cool.  Really, can't complain about the weather, we have hardly had any snow this year, and on the whole the temps have been unseasonably mild.

Day off from Puppy minding so getting on with finishing off some cards. I used to not do this and then decided just finish the whole thing off and then it's done, Such a pain to find no insert or greeting when it's need quickly to go in the post.

I've also been using some of my older stash, inspired by watching Little Claire on Hochanda the other week. It was lovely to see them on here as they were some of the first stamps I bought and joined their club where new stamps arrived through my letter box each month. I have such a collection, and a great many not yet used. So. I corrected that and have three to show today;
All these images are from the stamp set March Flowers, and this one is such a lovely dandelion head image, It's a tiny card, , but amazing what you get on it. All card and papers are from LC too and sentiment is part of the stamp set.
The card base is from LC, it's such a lovely flower shape and the image is coloured with a mixture of Faber-Castell and Derwent Coloursoft pencils. SN Sparkle pen and some Just Pearls.
My apologies for having the image in the photo around the wrong way, I've tried to rotate it but now luck, Anyway, coloured with Faber-Castell pencils and SN Sparkle pen and Just Pearls, sentiment is from Stamp set, again it's a tiny card.

These little cards are just for my box, and can be sent for most occasions.  I've looked out another stamp set that's unused, I'm determined to use older stuff.

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last project and also for the feed back on my Kingfisher card, I am always open to hearing what you think, and constructive criticism is so helpful.

I'm a wee bit behind with visiting and commenting, I've been awfully tired just lately, and come evening I'm sometimes just too wabbit to get on the computer. So please forgive if I've not made it to you.

Time to get to the kitchen and see what's for dinner, thinking what to have is more difficult than the actual cooking.

Have a lovely evening and I hope you have a super weekend planned, what ever it is. Take care and see you soon,

Three very lovely cards Kate. It's always nice to have collection so that you are not caught on the hop. We too have had some decent weather the last couple of days although still very chilly. But hey, it's only February. Spring can't be too far away! Hugs Christine xx

three beautiful cards Kate, love them all the dandelion one looks so delicate and the paper is perfect with the stamp.the first sign of Spring is beautifully coloured and the Spring smiles a wonderful layout.
Fantastic day here too, out in the garden cutting back some plants before they begin to leaf.

Way to go using your older NBUS, Kate, and finishing off your cards so they are all set to pop in the mail when you need one! Sometimes I get on a roll with the card fronts and just don't want to stop and do the inside faffing bit, but it does make the most sense in the long run to just do it and be done with it. It's not like they finish themselves in the box (not even when you have a hamster who SHOULD be doing that bit for you, lol!)! Anyway, I love all three of your pretty cards that remind us that spring is right around the corner! I hope you aren't coming down with something and that you feel perky soon! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Kate,
3 wonderful cards and those stamped images are gorgeous.
Your colouring is beautiful.
Love the wonderful designs too.
You take care and take things easy, and I do hope you are feeling A1 afain soon.
It's so horrid when you feel tired like that as you want to do things but the body won't allow it.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Kate
Gosh, what a glorious trio of loveliness. You have some lovely stamps and use them to wonderful effect.
Sorry you're still feeling tired. You would hope that would make you sleep better but sometimes its that vicious circle.
You take care.

Glad the weather has been kind x Such pretty cards and I hadn't noticed the last one, the wrong way around because the sentiment looked right!!! Got distracted too with the pretty colours and gorgeous colouring x

Sue said...

I have a stash of stamps that are unused also! I don't put them away until I use the though, so they are in aa tote on my desk waiting. Wonderful array of cards, colors and designs. Fun to use some not done before.

I lover the term "just too wabbit" - I think I will start saying it -- I am feeling too wabbit to cook! I hate trying to think of what I want to fix for a meal. You have really been productive Kate - your card box should be filling up!
