I really love the combination so much that I’ve gone a little crazy with cards – definite stress release over the past few weeks!

So here is a collection of brown, pink & green cards with birds, thanks to Embellish Magazine…unfortunately light is in short supply at the moment, so the images are rather dark & unflattering.  But you can’t help what you can’t help!

And this one is my Mum’s, which inspired the 2nd card from the top.

Recently I discovered there are official “styles” in cardmarking…fun and cute, and clean and graphic are two that are highlighted in the current issue of Cardstyle Magazine, and as both of them are not styles that come naturally to me, I thought I should definitely try them out.



It’s funny how when something is not your natural style, it doesn’t come easily, and you spend a lot more time playing with it, still not to be 100% happy in the end.  But I enjoyed playing with them anyhow! 

Shabby/vintage seems to be more my thing – as you can see in this post from a few days ago.

So, if you’re looking for a challenge when it comes to whatever your craft may be, have a look at what different styles are out there and give yourself some time to experiment, even if you turn out some duds.  Hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained, right!?
