1 Card for 2 Challenges

Morning Ladies, I have been up early this morning, have the sniffles, and hope it does not come to anything, as I have my children and grandchildren coming through from Dundee for our Fireworks night.  I have home-made soup and Dumpling to make, and also need to spend some time in my shed doing my DT projects.  I have just finished the blog hop/card drive for Young Jaimie and there are some harrowing stories out there, which only belong on a TV show.... I have shed quite a few tears this week, and I am not a tearful kind of person.    I hope you all take the time to look at the post above and join in this drive, you have until Monday to make your card and link it.  I do have Candy to offer the winner, which Tommy will pick out off the hat on Monday evening, so I will post the winner on Tuesday Morning, so come on girls, lets make a difference to this Young Girl and her Dad.....Post your comment on the post above, called Spread the Love for Jamie.....Hugs Avril xxxxx

This card is for There Magic in the Air - Magical Monday, they have given the Cornucopia Image ( by Nina) to use which is just fabulous, also Nilla asked for us to add Buttons to our Cards, I really loved working with this image. The 2nd challenge I am going to enter with this is The Character Cafe challenge NO.4, Piali has picked the theme Witches Brew, she wanted a non halloween card made with left over halloween papers, so I used the papers along with the Cornucopia Image to make a Thank You Card.

Avril, what a wondeful delightful non Halloween card with those papers! I thought the pp were so cute with this image and then I read the paragraph; I thought they were just perfect and fun! Plus I really love the touch of purple in the pp and your buttons it really pops the purple out of your image as well! Just lovely and I so need to make that card for Jamie today!! Thanks for playing along with this weeks challenge over at TMITA! Hope to see more of you!

Aloha Avril!
Lovely card! The colors are great together but what made it pop for me was the how the image is tilted a bit, makes it more interesting. Thanks for playing with us this week at TMITA and can't wait to see what you do with next week's image!
