3 very different cards

Good morning everyone, I hope you have all battened down the hatches ready for the fourth big storm in such a short time, the world's weather has gone mad, and it isn't even cold yet, at least not here in the Midlands!!!

At last, I have started writing my cards out, envelopes named and stamped but I still have to add the addresses!!! I did manage to get my overseas ones posted yesterday LOL.

As my title suggests, I have 3 cards to show you this morning, and all quite different from each other, so here they are.

 The first is a very simple card, approx 6x6, folded and cut from an A4 sheet of my usual white linencard from The Range.
Leaves cut with Crealie dies from a bit of green card from my scrap box.
Marianne poinsettia diecut from red pearlised card and the same green card as the leaves, and the centre from a scrap of pearlised buff card.
I used the same red card for the sentiment backing.
Sentiment is computer generated using the Smarty Pants font.
Stitched fishtails cut with Die-namics dies. 
Pearls from stash and coloured with Copic marker pen.

 Although it doesn't look it, this one is brown, ivory and gold.
It is 7x5, cut from A4 sheets of card.
Ivory Papermill linencard I bought from the Lovely Christine L
Brown linencard is from PDA.
I used Stampendous detail gold embossing powder for the stamped sentiment and images, all freebies from a mag.
Marianne poinsettia die again. 
Gold linen card was kindly given to me by the lovely ChristineL.

This one is quite a small A6 size. Not my size of choice but I had printed the photograph too small for a larger card.
Basecard is PMS hammered white, bought in the days when the PMS were still open!
Pewter textured card is from PDA.
My photograph, which I took about 7 years or so ago in my daughter's garden, is printed on my usual whit linencard, along with the sentiment using the Dauphin font.
Holly cut with Memory Box :o)

Morning Jackie, was rather windy here last night, much calmer this morning. Dull rainy day but not too cold thankfully. No heating as hubby adding new radiators to a room that's getting a facelift. Gorgeous cards, although I said I was finished mine, mmmn, don't seem to have many fiat ones for posting. Love the snowy scene of your granddaughters garden, lovely personal card. Carol xx
