Ismaki 09/008

Sorry to have temporarily disappeared again! I was in the UK last week visiting our new granddaughter and my poorly niece as well as other relations, and even managed several hours at the NEC trade craft fair. I find it frustrating though when you want to spend, spend, spend and come out laden with goodies but you can only order for later delivery: Just not the same! The last card was pre-scheduled so I appreciated the comments even more than usual: Thank you :)
I have been so busy that I have loads that I haven't had time to blog but I'll start catching up with the card made using Bea's Ismaki challenge sketch (rotated 90°) AND the sewing option!
Tilda coloured with Whispers markers; papers: 'Olivine' by Papermania; flowers: Prima and Imaginisce.

  3. What an adorable card!! So sweet!! You did an incredible job on it! Hope you enjoyed seeing your newest grand daughter!

  4. I love everything about this card - the soft colours, the flowers, your embellishments and all thos papers!!! How do you get the card to look so 'together' when you use so much material? The pinky-red of Tilda's sweater is a great contrast!

  5. oh how cute is it? looks so very pretty and lovely. thank you for your wonderful card to my sketch on ismaki. hugs, bea

  6. Great card Karen and glad all was well in the UK. I don't go to many of the large craft shows now precisely because of the reason you said - it's so fustrating when you can't get what you want ! ! ! I sound like a toddler having a temper tantrum now ! !

    Take care,


  7. oh so very sweet karen ~love the greens you have chosen ~ those flowers are perfect!!
    hope you enjoyed your family time in the uk!!
