Lets Craft and Create: Challenge #153 ANYTHING GOES + (OPTION) 'Thank You'

Fabulous weather,  summer is on its way here in New Zealand.  

The spring flowers are out and the bees are working hard . 

And yes it is time for the November challenge from 'Lets Craft and Create'

My creation this month are 'Thank you' cards using lavender from my garden. 

I love the fact that although I have used real flowers, 
rather than dying these will dry and still look as great. 
 Firstly I made mini bouquets of lavenders with tissue paper and twine
 I used one of my fav 'Thanks' stamps from Stampin up 
 Here are a couple more photos


Hope you like the cards, remember there is nothing like receiving 'Thanks you' flowers
even when they are mini bunches.
I look forward to seeing your creation
Happy crafting

DO-AL(L) Creatives challenge #35 - : Anything but a card

This month I have started a Recipe journal for a friend, 
 which I hope to have complete before Christmas. 

Our DO-AL(L) Creatives challenge sponsor for this month is; 

Simon Says Stamp!

Now for the recipe journal I will be sharing some of my favourite recipes.
I made the entire journal from my stash of papers. 
I embellished the cover 
and used my trusty Zutter to bind the pages.

Added some ribbon to the binding.
and I will slow add recipes and photos 

Hope you like it. 



I look forward to see your creations - remember anything but a card. 

Happy crafting

Lets Craft and Create: Challenge #152 ANYTHING GOES + (OPTION) 'Colour of Fall'

Welcome to our October challenge from 'Let's Craft and Create'

ANYTHING GOES + (OPTION)  'Colours of Fall -  Red, Yellow, Orange and brown'

My inspiration for this month is a card.

 And it was such a lovely day here in Palmerston North NZ, I took the photo outside. 



Please remember to go have a look at the inspiration from the team
at the 'Lets Craft and Create' challenge.

And rember the prize for this month:


Here are a couple more shots. 

I used a die for the leaves and also fussy cut some patterned paper.

 I embossed the base handmade paper,  which I made myself.   


 Now confession time, as I made alot of cards and often I like it so much I don't actually want to give it away so I repurpose the card for a scrapbook page.  I do the same with cards that I receive as well,  which is a nice well to keep them as a keepsake.   


Lots of bees around today gathering pollen from my lavender in the garden.   


 Happy crafting
