A couple I made and never blogged

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well with you :o).
By the way, I went to get my tyres sorted and was told they had at least another thousand miles in them yet YAYYYYYYYYYYYY


It's not often that I love my own work but I do love this one. 
It's one of  those cards that I don't want to let go!
The image is my own lavender photograph and I used my Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder for the first time.


This one is out of my comfort zone, I don't usually do sticky outy bits! I think it is growing on me now.
I don't know what the flower is, but it is in the Orangery at Caulke Abbey and it is so beautiful.
Top card is 5x7 and the round one is about 5.75 
Dies used are Marianne, Memory Box and Grand Nesties.

If the secod is out of your comfort zone Jackie, then I would never have known, it's my fav of the two. Although of course the first is lovely and looks like another die I will be 'needing'.

Brilliant news about the tyres, Jackie, I'd be doing a happy dance too :)

Both your cards are beautiful. I believe that embossing folder is much sought after and hard to fin and I can quite see why ... needless to say I don't have the folder - I'm always the last to find these things out.

Lol, I have cards that I can't bear to let go too! What a fab embossing folder on that card, looks very special.

have to say I love your 'sticky out bits' card - you work well outside your comfort zone. Nice to see another photo from 'Cake' Abbey too :)
