I've Made A Card!

I recently saw a poll on facebook asking how long it took you to make a card, the options started at about 15 minutes and the max time was an hour. It's only taken me a week to make this card......... LOL!

For a change, it hasn't been made to fit any specific need other than if I'd left it any longer I might have forgotten how to......

The image was a LOTV freebie off a recent magazine, coloured with Copics and liberally dusted with glamour dust.
The lace, doily, pearls & flowers have been in my stash for far too long.
One of the backing papers was a gift from my lovely friend Jennie to help me re-discover my MoJo - It worked. Thank you once again x
And the other backing paper was the 'Must Have' item bought a couple of years ago that I believe qualifies me to enter Flying Fresian's MSE challenge.

Thank you for looking

Margaret x


  1. It definitely counts for the challenge. Perfectly acceptable to take a week to make something that pretty too ;)

  2. This is so pretty, glad you found your mojo. Don't worry about how it's taken you, I'm a slow crafter too, so you have company :D

  3. Gorgeous card Margaret. The image is really cute, and I love the colour combination of the backing papers and mat/flourish card that you have used. Well I certainly can't make my cards between 15 minutes to an hour -wish I could. I always think that my cards are made with love, and that takes time!!!xx

  4. Beautiful card I love the paper.

  5. It was well worth the wait. What a pretty card with everything so beautifully co-ordinated. I absolutely love it xx

  6. This is absolutely beautiful, gorgeous image and soft colours, perfect x

  7. gorgeous card, i love the lace x

  8. Margaret, your card is so pretty and goes perfectly with the background papers and a lovely coloured image.

    15 minutes to make a card, that'll never be me, I spend too long faffing!

  9. What an absolutely stunning card, I love the soft colours you have used and cute image!! The glitter just sets the whole card off perfectly!! Beautiful .. as for time ... one I am working on now has taken an hour ... then I destroyed it :( so time to start again! Doh! x

  10. The lace doilies look like fairy dresses lol.
    A beautiful card .
    I think sometimes cards can take more than a week because you walk away and come back to them with fresh ideas.


Thank you for taking the time to comment I do appreciate it.
