Meeting Maria today

Hello Everyone
I have a lovely long week end to enjoy. I hope you have too. Husband is working today and Monday which means I have control of the tele remote and I can craft, craft, craft!
I'm meeting Maria Alder today. it feels like a bit of a blind date but hopefully, as we've seen photos of each other, we'll find each other. I'm so excited
Today's card is another "go to" 

4x6 deckle card blank
SW Creative Expressions open Daisy dies
SW Creative Expressions 3D bow
Mei Flower bling
Lidll card stock But sometimes I have printed off a square of colour in Serif to match the text I have used

This is my "make" from the C&C Members gift. I've used a TL die (1/2 price at Christmas) to frame it. I inked the edges and matted it onto black. I was so taken with the kit that I tried to order a 2nd kit but it was sold out. I liked the mixture of Candi It appears that most packs of Candi are usually a similar colour
Have a great week end everyone. Thank you for your comments
See you Tuesday


  1. Morning Karen - both these cards are truly lovely but particular like the first one (my colours) - have a lovely day today, I guess it is a blogger you have met who lives relatively nearby - what a fab way to meet up with like minded folks - enjoy xx GailT xx

  2. Isn't it lovely when you meet people you have known in blogland for ages? Lovely card by the way, I have only just joined C&C after buying the Cut N Boss so have yet to get into these free gifts. xxx

  3. Two great cards-the first is my favourite. Love tbe simplicity of it & the fact you could use someone's favourite colours.

    Hope you have a great day meeting up with a blog buddy.


  4. Karen two beautiful cards, love the first CAS one, the design and the colurs are perfect, the second one is a gorgeous design too. Well I hope you two have had a great meet up, it's so lovely to meet people you have chatted to but never meet, as when you do its just like two old friends meeting. Hazel x

  5. Hi Karen,
    wonderful cards today.
    Love the white and green one, and also your make with your freebie.
    Fab designing as usual.
    Have a lovely weekend, and enjoy the remote to yourself.
    My DH and I both have separate TVs as he like to watch sitting in bed, but I can never get comfortable that way and watch mine in the living room.
    So no probs there about the remote, also because of my eye problem I have to have my chair very close to the Tv screen otherwise peoples faces are distorted.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Two fantastic cards so pleased you don't want us to choose a favourite!
    Hope the two of you had a super time today meeting up today
