Poppies again and Chocolate Baroque shares



Morning Peeps, hope you are all having a good week. Can I first welcome my new followers and also thank you all for your encouraging comments on my last post, clearly I am not alone in my dislike of repetitive card making.


Today we are sharing more inspirational fifteen minute cards over at the Chocolate Baroque DT blog. Sometimes it's quite refreshing to make less detailed cards and it also allows you to see stamps in a totally different light. As I have quite a few cards to share I won't go into detail as you will find that over at the CB blog, but please do mail me if you have any specific questions.





That's it for today, many thanks for taking a peek.

All are gorgeous Brenda and I do wish I could make something like these in fifteen minutes. I spend too much time faffing about I think, deciding on colours and embellishments and where to place things, it takes me ages.
Thanks for the inspiration to also do just a little more stamping - something I don't do enough of.

Wow Brenda, how many delighs!!! Your "fifteen minute cards" are just stunning!!! I need of fifteen minuts only for stamping something LOL :D Any card of yours is a joy for the eyes and so striking!! Love expecially the autumnal card with vellum and these amazing leaves in warm colours, but also that one with the red poppies on the musical notes in the CAS! All the backgrounds are wonderful, and that one with the bunny looks so unique and creative!
