The Return of Cards on Sunday!

Back after a long absence is my cards on Sunday spot. I sometimes forget, in my quest to scrap all my photos, how enjoyable it is to sit an make cards.

Last weekend I headed over to one of my favourite events of the year - Tina, a regular at our retreats, holds a craft day 2 or 3 times a year with card making inspiration and challenges and the option to do whatever you like craft wise.

One of the challenges was to use a certain piece of paper as the basis for a card. It was so pretty and reminded me a lot of some of the Prima lines we have had in stock and also some of the Marion Smith designs papers which are due in right about NOW!

I decided to make two cards with the pretty background paper and it really didn't take uch foraging around in my stash to find appropriate "go with its!"

With the addition of some stamping, a bit of sparkly bling and a couple of stickers and punched shapes my two cards were finished and I thoroughly enjoyed making them.

I actually did these when I was having a lapse in mojo for the layouts I had taken and once I had finished the cards I went on to make 3 layouts so maybe they were the kick start I needed!
