Loving Thursday

It is yukky windy weather here in London and staying inside and crafting is a must.

So today I had a go at making my first card using felt. The idea for this came from the challenge this week on Just Us Girls. My Mum gave me some felt that she has collected over the years from old Xmas decorations so I have recycled this to make my card-making it an ideal entry to for re-cycle challenge this week at Cards for Men.

I used my Big Shot to make the red felt and the challenge on Colour Throwdown this week was to combine red, black and silver so this was the inspiration for my colour combo.

The silver netting and wordy rubber sentiment came from Joanna Sheen. I have used Versa Magic 'cloud white' ink for the sentiment. There are a few 'love' challenges around at the moment as we prepare for Valentines and I have chosen to enter my card into the one at Crafty Sentiments.

And finally the true inspiration for this card came from the Christmas card Callum gave me-it is a very big card but gorgeous, suits my Xmas colours and is now a new collection to my decorations!


  1. What a great inspiration card you had to work with! I love that one! And your card is equally wonderful! I love the mesh and the fact that you recycled some felt for that gorgeous heart! Thanks so much for playing with Just Us Girls!

  2. SUCH a wonderful creation: POW! Your use of FELT is flawless and super fun! THANKS for sharing your wonderful work and inspiration with Just Us Girls!

  3. The sizzix cut the felt beautifully! Love that your mum is thinking of her supplies for you! And Callum's card I LOVE. All those sequins are gorgeous.
