Galloping free



Hello Peeps, a mega quick post as I am still chasing my tail or should I say infections and just about fed up with endless pills, yet more today and they make me feel pretty yukky.

But I do need to share my mid month cards for Penny Black and More challenge following our theme this month of 'Pink, Pearly and Swirly' and FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where our theme is Blue Brown and Aqua.


If you have not already joined in our challenges I hope you will as we have as always some fabulous prizes on offer from Penny Black, Crafts U Love and FlonzCraft is our sponsor at both challenges. Stamps on my top card are all FlonzCraft and on the second Penny Black.

Apols this is so short, I can but hope for more energy tomorrow.

Two beautifully created cards, Brenda. I love your horse running free and the foliage on your first card. The delicate green merging into pink on your second card gives such a lovely effect. Love your flower, too.

Hope you soon feel much better. I cannot tolerate any kind of strong pain meds. They make me feel extremely nauseous. I wish they would come up with an alternative. Take care! xx

Two beautiful cards Brenda, love your scenes and love the pretty flower and lovely sentiment on the second. Hope you feel brighter son. Carol.xx

Paula (PEP) said...

Oh I do hope those infections get themselves out of your system. Both of these are splendid but it's the second one that I keep coming back to - I might just have to acquire that Magnolia butterfly some day. You've used it splendidly here mimicking the colours of the plant & I particularly like the way you stamped swirls in the background which echo those on that ribbon. The little bow is delightful on the flower.
Take care of yourself.
Much love
Paula (PEP)

Kat said...

Gorgeous cards Brenda. I sometimes see the horse at the farm next door galloping about happily. Love your PB card with all that lovely swirly pinkness. Love that ribbon.

What a shame you're still feeling low when the weather is so nice. Well it is here so I hope it is fine where you are too. Hope you feel better soon. I think sometimes medication does make you feel yukky!

Take care,

Kat xx

I did not have a chance to take a closer look at this fabulous blue and brown card, but I did notice it in my blog list. I so love that colour combination. So happy I decided to take a closer look or I would have missed your stunning creation in pink. I do hope I will have time to play this weekend.

Love that wild horse silhouette running across the card, so emotive!

and how perfectly matched are the papers and stamp on the second? Beautiful quote and colour!
