 Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well and happy, I've finally got into my craftroom for a play and I managed to get done so many projects, I'm so happy to get ahead after such a lull..of course I cannot share just yet, but can share that green and grey work..

I started with patterned vellum I found in one of the drawers, gosh I bought this when I first started crafting about 12 years ago..

After I die cut these cut frames in black card stock, I smooshed over some Nuvo mousse in yellow, which didn't do a great deal..

So moved to the green and got what I wanted...


Then cut a multitude of leaves, flowers, flower centers which I coloured and glued them together, which I find so relaxing and pleasant..

So bunched them altogether and started building cards in which I made 4..and had a few leftovers..

Striped background was in order, not too busy and added a touch of elegance..

And there they are...but needed sentiments..

So went with Birthday...seem to be the most popular..

So there we go, very happy with these for my stash..

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow..

Fantastic Chrissy. I'm too involved in just making without doing step by steps but so appreciate seeing yours. Very inspiring.

Green and grey certainly does work Chrissy- these birthday cards are beautiful-fabulous frames and flowers, the striped background sets them off perfectly.
