I've had some great luck with a couple of recent creations.....I was very pleased to discover that my Tilda frame card was a Top 5 in last week's ABC challenge, and someone saw my DT card for the Dream Valley Challenge on my blog and asked if they could have it or one like it for a wedding she was going to! That was a real compliment as no-one has ever asked me for a card before.
Here is a card I made for a friend who has been pretty unwell. Now, as you know I don't really 'do' male cards, but this image is a good one to use for a man. This chap and his lady are keen gardeners too, so another reason to use this great country cottage scene. I thought the lattice background looked quite like a garden trellis and seemed to really fit with the theme. The individual paper strips are woven and laced together, and it's something that I've been meaning to try for a couple of weeks, then when I saw this fantastic card on Joan's inspirational blog, it gave me the reminder and the spark to have a go.
