Today's cards

I decided today to make some cards from some of the bits and pieces that have been stashed away in a box waiting for a day like today. I had some ready mounted pictures, stamped images etc - it was a question of putting them all together to actually produce cards. I managed to make 17 in total.

So here they are in a little slideshow:

Tanda Teaser 'flowers in the round'

This week's Tanda teaser has been set by Sheila: 'With the beautiful sunshine we have been having my thoughts have been wandering out into the garden and towards flowers. I love flowers and I love the softer look circles can give to a card so this week I am going with those thoughts and I challenge you to make a card incorporating flowers and circles in some way.'

I stamped a circle of leaves - a Magenta stamp and then scattered flowers over. The corner paper is DCWV (I think) - trying to use up some of my stray 6 x 6 papers:

DCM beads

This week's dare, set by Sue H, is: 'We have our 'Beady' eyes on you!' - to use beads in some way.

I'm not good with beads, but even worse this morning with eyelets - I nearly gave up in the end - using my new crop-a-dile big bite - found it so, so fiddly - I got there in the end.

Paper is DCWV. The Happy Birthday sentiment isn't as dark irl - it has a sheen on it, which has come up darker in the photo.
