Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well and happy.
I have two cards to show you today, both made using my own snowdrop photographs. So appropriate at this time of year. Yes, I know that flutterbies and snowdrops would not be seen together IRL, but we can call it cardmaker's licence :o)

White linen card cut and folded to 7x5
White pearlised card embossed with Creative Expressions and Marianne embossing folders
Flutterbies from Martha Stewart punch
Foliage from Marianne dies
Main image and mats cut with Nesties
Plain green card for mats
I hope you like them :o)

I behind again...Cheryl First (Cafe Expression) came to visit me for a few days...all the way from West Virginia. I haven't been on computer. I love love love the tulip cards today. How did you do the plaid embossing on the main paper? I don't think that was a marianne die but I could be wrong. I would really like to emboss like that. I always uhhh and ahhh over your beautiful, stunning cards you make using your photographs. Amazing!!!!

How lovely to use your own photographs on your cards Jackie and snowdrops are such a pretty delicate flower.

I wanted to thank you for your support over the 'little incident' I posted about on Monday. It's still being dealt with but I hope to report some positive news soon.

Morning Jackie, these 2 are gorgeous, I love how you used the leafy diecuts around the circular image on the second card, makes a great layout and perfect the way you did it. Where would we be without cardmaker's licence? lol. CoB
