Well I've started of with the Gertie set.
And these are 4 of the cards I have made over the weekend.
I love the old muted colours and instead of a white card as the main I bought some cream , which I like with these papers better.
The lovely mice making cupcakes is a new stamp I bought this week from Lily Of The Valley. The scarecrow is a Molly Bloom and one of these cards is for my Dad ,it's his birthday Tuesday.
And just to finish the card off I've used some of the lovely twill ribbon from Andrea at the Ribbon Girl, so pleased with this as it's cream back ground with lines of colour running through instead of white so matches real well.

The backing paper is 'Serenity' from the Sweetness of Living range by Onirie which is in stock now:
Layered on top of this sheet was a flourish and flower section which I cut from 'Peaceful' another sheet from the range:Truffle and Bamboo Leaf - through a section of plastic canvas [the kind normally used for embroidery]:
Then, once that had dried I stamped over the grid effect with the 'How Are You?' phrase:
... which is from the Purple Onion 'Hello' set:
As for the silly photo ... well it's probably self-explanatory really. Surely?
You know how it is ... you go away for a weekend in November with 6 other crafters ... you all pretend it's Halloween ... someone takes a photo of you holding up a skeleton ... the person who usually does all the cooking has gone to Japan .... you know?
All the usual stuff ...
Thanks for dropping by today and I'll see you soon.

but I love this Onirie paper.... and it went so well with this picture that didn't print properly! waste not want not.
I cut out the flower sections and used them to frame the picture adding some stickles for a little sparkle.
The birds were an invitation card (junk mail!) I added some stickles to liven them up.
