Hello lovely ladies
Its been such a long time since I last posted or entered a challenge it’s taken me ages to write this post.
Since the end of last year I’ve started an evening course to learn how to design patterns and create my own clothes I’ve really enjoyed it but as with all things crafty it’s become an obsession and card making has fallen by the wayside. Actually that’s not true I’ve been making cards just not blogging them as all of my energy and money has been ploughed into my new hobby. Today though I decided to take the plunge and enter a couple of my favourite challenges albeit with a very simple card. so here goes
The lovely limettes are asking us to add something real to our cards so this is what I came up with
I used my trusty Silhouette Cameo to cut the image popped it up with some foam for dimension and added the paper clips for my ” real thing ” very simple.
I’m also entering into City Crafter challenge whose theme this week is
Back to School
Well that’s all from me and I do hope it wont be another six months before I post again.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend.
Hi Marie, what a great silhouette and this cut by your cameo, wow. Your paper clips are a perfect and cool accent.
Nice weekend and hugs

I hope it isn’t another six months before we see you again, too, Marie! It was a treat to see you pop into my inbox and see your beautiful school days silhouette! The colorful paperclips against the b/w is genius!! Your new hobby sounds fascinating; I can see why you became immersed in it! Hugs, Darnell

Well Helloooo! So good to see you posting! And what a superb card for the challenge! You are so good with that Cameo… I’m envious of you taking that pattern making class… Something I wished I’d have done years ago. I hope you share some of your creations with us. Have a great week!
