Liebster Awards

Hello again,

WOW - 2 posts in one night, what is happening here!!

Just wanted to send a special thank you to the below 2 lovely ladies for my Liebster awards!  It means a lot that you both would think of me and my humble little blog... especially of late when it is so neglected!!



You are both angels, thank you, thank you, thank you Linda and Lizzy.

Manor House Card share

Well, happy Sunday to you all, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.. We finally had some sun and it was so wonderful.  I am not a huge "out-doorsy" type, but weeks on end of rain was not something I liked!!  We have been to the park, had lunch on the water and spent an afternoon sitting on the back porch of my sisters in the sun :)

Here today to share a card set I created for Manor House... I really like doing my cards in sets of 2, I think it's quicker..  Colours are sorted and the 2nd card is really just the scraps of the 1st if you get what I mean.



I have painted the larger flowers with Glimmer Glam - my new best friend.. I know, it's been around for ages but lately it is my new discovery.  Also love the grey ones, they call them oatmeal and they are delicious!

Thanks for popping by
Gwen

To the Moon and Back


Hi Everyone,

A new Manor House layout to share featuring one of Caitlin's very first love letters; written to me of course!!  

I find it hard to keep everything she creates but this little gem deserved some special treatment.

I've used her letter as the title of my page and as it is not "acid free" I've layered it between pattern papers; several layers away from my photo.  Background is a basic letter stencil you can pick up at any office supply store scrapped with Gesso.  I've then layered up some squares of chipboard covered with scraps of pattern paper. For the blooms in my cluster I've mixed the blues and pinks from the background papers.

Did you know that once a month over on the Manor House blog, they feature creations by their lovely blog followers??  Simply send any project using their blooms to designteam@manorhousecreations.com and you could be featured - Why not I say, why not!!  :)

Until next time.
