Spring Fling

Isn't British weather just the strangest thing ever?? Two weeks ago we were digging ourselves out of our houses and absolutely freezing cold. Today, Spring has sprung, the sun is shining, we've got drought warnings and our overcoats have been thrown off!! I suppose, it won't be long before the downpours start and we'll have floods. It's very strange indeed.

It's definitely been one of those days, today...I've been suffering from a migraine for most of it but it's calmed down enough for me to pop by to say hello and share my final makes for CHA and Craftwork Cards. I hope you like them...

I made the shadow box from card and used the Candi to highlight the sides of the cards and the flower centres.

On this frame card, I used the Candi to accent the window and papers from the Confetti range. The dress form is from Basically Bare, which can be bought direct from the Kuretake Online Shop. The flower is handmade from some more of the Confetti papers.

Tonight, I'm going to take it easy, have a cup of tea and treat myself to a few more choccies from my Hotel Chocolat stash.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at what I've made and I'll be around to see all your creations, asap!!
Bye for now and see you soon.
Love Emma xxx


  1. Hi Emma...your cards are beautiful. The black and white one is stunning. Hope your migraine improves.

  2. I hope that migraine has taken itself off for good now. both these cards are lovely, but my favourite would be the first one. The elegance of the monochrome look definitely has it for me. Thank you for popping over today and leaving such a lovely comment. It is certainly good to be able to find things now. I shall be back with another post later in the week for the Snippets challenge and the Rudolph Day Challenge, both using up more UFO's. Good luck finishing all your samples, I am sure they will all be a real wow. xx Maggie

  3. I really must get some of the black and white Candi, it's so striking and you use it so beautifully. Both these pieces are lovely and dimensional, so effective. Yet another gorgeous flower too. Hope your head improves soon. Tracy x

  4. Ohh Emma
    Wowsers honey! I love both of them but the black and white is just so striking! But adore that pinky/gold flower! Just love your flowers hee

  6. Hi Emma, I can totally sympathise with the migraine - hope it clears soon.

    These are both stunning. I love the black and white - very eye catching. But I also love the pink and cream - so pretty. And that flower, well, you just make the best flowers - ever!!

    Tea and chocolate, mmmmmmmmm, enjoy.
