Hello Everyone..

Day two back at work and I'm in the swing already..not too bad at all, and I was missed and told so over and over, so that was really nice.

Been busy this afternoon looking after my Grandsons mouse..Stuart..he has mites.. so I've been spraying him and cleaning the cage and spraying him again...he looks so much better than yesterday so something is working.. for the Ladies..

Beautiful painted images off the net..reduced and cards made..

A lovely cottage and flowers scene..with a Cheery Lyn designs fence[ cut in half] and MB butterfly..and a few flowers sprinkled around..

Added a small amount of texture paste through a brick wall stencil and another MB frame die..

No design papers..just Ivory coloured cardstock and distressed edges..

I love this one..loads of layers..another internet image..Chipboard birds sitting on branches from WOC...white embossed Happy birthday sentiment [was given a lot of wooden sentiments stamps when I was away in Christchurch in April]...

Nice and thick but flattens down well for posting..I used grocery cardboard boxes cut up for the layering and a hot glue gun.

Flowers from WOC and the pink cardstock strips in the background is left over bits which I distressed..[ Saw this on Pamellias Blog ]..

And one more....

Another window scene but slightly different colours..

Lots of thick layers again..this time used Prima papers in the background and for the strips through the middle..

I love the chipboard flowers from WOC...

All edges distressed..a doily and cheesecloth with pearls and pink roses from WOC...

So there we go..three more cards done and also, that made me happy.

Challenges to enter....

Shopping Our Stash   [layer it on me]

Through the Craftroom Door   [anything goes]

Try it on Tuesday   [sending you flowers]

Thank so very much for stopping by...not sure what I'm doing at the moment as I have scheduled this post and I could be anywhere, but I'm sure I'm smiling or making an elderly person laugh..that's my job in life..

See you tomorrow.

Three absolutely beautiful layered cards, Chrissy - I'm not usually much of a one for pink, but you've really turned that on its head here. The third one is maybe my favourite - just because I'm a sucker for those wildflower woodcuts probably - but they're all beautifully done.
