Saturday Smile

Hello and Happy Saturday

The football season has started here and later this afternoon my DH will be going off to see his team play ... I love my peaceful time!
It's cold and wet but I don't mind ... more reason to play with my supplies or maybe catch an afternoon movie ... Oh the choices lol!

In between DT work yesterday I put together a card from my scraps ...


I often die cut something then change my mind about the colour... hence I end up with things I don't use ... Like this smile word die and the chloe stem


I've always admired the cards I see with the curved front and really wanted to try it so I used my Cameo to cut one ...

As it happens the challenge at JUGS this week is a photo challenge


It's such an interesting photo with so much to go on ... I hadn't seen this photo when I made my card and I'm glad I went for those colours as they are in the photo and I have a flower so hopefully this will qualify for the challenge...

I hope you have a lovely day ... I'll be back tomorrow with photos for 

Till then ... take care

I love how you have tied the colours together! Those stripes and texture really stand out and are beautiful elements against the gorgeous die cut. Simplly elegant :)
Enjoy your crafty time Ros. Hugs to you.

The warm colors are beautiful and the curved piece adds great shape to your card Ros. It made me smile for sure. Hugs!

A lovely bright cheery card Ros, I often do the same - die cuts and stamped images I scrounge through before I cut more, makes for a quick card (sometimes). Cheers Robyn

I am a big fan of your creative talents; including your scraps! This card is lovely; I love the splash of red ( who would have thought that I would say that?? LOL) and I love the curved design.
