Cards Inspiration Friday

So glad it's Friday again!  This week has gone by so quickly.  My father is so excited today because he knows my brother is coming home tonight after a month in UK.  I'm sure he's coming back with lots of goodies - my mum is looking forward to sugar free chocolates, and I'm of course looking forward to the new Nigella Lawson cookbook bro is bringing back for me plus a few of the Waltzing Mouse stamps!  So glad!  And I still have not mailed out the Christmas cards... so disorganised :(  That's how the month has been...

Amidst all the crazy schedules, I managed to squeeze in time to create some cards.  My two boxes of craft goodies also arrived this week, so I've been wanting to use my new papers and tools but perhaps this weekend, there might be time.

Here are the cards:

I love the Pink Paislee Father Christmas 6x6 papers, they are so pretty. I just added the Lovely Labels 2 frame and a sentiment to the card.  This is a gatefold card.

 
 This card was made for the sketch challenge at StampTV.  I wanted to make a glittery card, used stickles and glitter pen but the glitter doesn't show up much on the photo.

This card was for a colour challenge at StampTV.  I embossed the card with Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Victorian.  The roses image was coloured with copic markers (R81, R83, R85, YG01, Y000, YG91), I kept the leaves and stem really light so that the focus is on the flowers.

 This card was the Unity Hip Hop sketch challenge this week at Splitcoaststampers.  It's a simple card with just layers of patterned papers and lace and some ribbon. The stamped image on watercolour paper was coloured with Twinkling H2O.

I hope these cards cheer your day.  Have a good one!

My!My!My! I am at a loss for words. They are simply beautiful - a masterpiece. Nigella Lawson? I watch her on Asian Food Channel and her food looks delicious but don't know about the calories.

Hi Kary,

These cards are gorgeous! And you've made quite a few, love them! The first one is my fave here today, the paper is so lovely and I love the way you dared the combination with the bright red and the shape of the card is fun! Very very nice!
Your blog background is so pretty as well, the cute colored lines are lovely!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!! Pim and I will have our birthday party this evening! Pim's bday was on November 10 and mine will be on December 26, so we picked a date in the middle and we'll go bowling and out for diner, with family and friends! That will be so much fun, can't wait!! Anything nice for you planned? Wanna come bowling? ;-)
