Cards I have loved…

Do you ever have cards you have made that you just can’t bear to give away? I make so many dozens of cards, I often make one that I really like, but as they are destined for magazine articles or TV shows, I can’t just hide them away and not part with them!

I thought I would do a couple of blogs just showing cards I have particularly loved this year and both of these cards were an easy choice.

Beautiful Bruges – well worth a visit.

The pretty watery scene is from the pad featuring Evgeny (pronounced Eugeny) Lushpin’s artwork. I love his choices of subject and the way he paints. This particular scene is in Bruges I believe and is so beautiful (as is all of Bruges if you get a chance to go for a visit). The backing paper behind also comes from the pad as does the border and sentiment – so convenient!

The butterflies and leaves are from the Signature Die range – Butterfly Cloud and Trailing Leaves.

The gorgeous little bird card uses an image from the Jane Shasky Birds in the Garden pad alongside our Signature Dies Pumpkin Patch – ideal for autumn too!

    Loving your cards, Joanna ….

    I went to Bruges in my teens (loved the chocolates) and the hand-made lace (still have a lovely little circle, in its own printed paper bag) …. thanks for the memories!

    Such gorgeous cards Joanna and I know what you mean. It’s like having to give away your favourite children. Well, maybe not quite!!

    Gorgeous cards as usual. I too went to Bruges as a school girl. Loved the lace makers and of course the chocolate!
