A new friend and recent work

I had been praying for such a long time for someone to come into my life who I can craft with... who I can  teach and share the talent I have been blessed with... and God has graciously answered my prayer.  A few months ago Shazzy got in touch with me (she'd met me at a craft show) and since that time we've crafted together and become such wonderful friends.  Every Friday we get together and craft all day.  It's so much fun when you can share your ideas and talents with a friend.

This last Friday we made a book card.  Shazzy had bought the Presscut Book Die Set and we worked together and made our cards.  I hadn't made one since doing the Bookatrix years ago.  Here is my card.........
I started this next card a few weeks ago but it then sat on my desk because I just didn't know exactly where I was going with it.  I'd cut the Sue Wilson Gemini Lyra for my decorative edge... Used part of the Sue Wilson Swiss Collection Geneva die to cut the oval but that's were I stopped.  Finally I decided on using some of my Gardenia Roses and here is the finished card.
I've added a bit of Sue Wilson's Trailing Ivy and I made a decorative Teapot pin.  It's been quite a while since I'd made a pin..  You'll be seeing more in my work from now on.

Here are a two more cards I've made in recent days.

The top card is made using the Sue Wilson Festive Collection Christmas Rose with her Lattice Arched Adornment also the Mini Gemini Ursa die as my edge.  The corners are from SW Configurations - Swirly Lace Edger (corners only)  I've also used part of the SW Finishing Touches Scalloped Lattice Buckle.
The next card I've used Sue Wilson's Gemini Rococo die.  The flowers are one of my new creations made with the Cheery Lynn Sweet William die... I call them PENNY DROPS.  

Finally... here are two cards designed and made for FAT CATS CARD CORNER    Both are featuring the Sue Wilson Christmas Rose.

In the top card I've also used the Sue Wilson Australian Collection Background and in the bottom card I've used the SW Arbour Gate... inside the gate you can just see Marianne Creatables Tiny's Couple.

That's it from me for now...  I'll be posting my Friday cards each week... If I forget, someone send me a POKE!   Love to you all and especially to Little Bugalugs
