A Saturday quickie

So fast to whip up - even at my snail's pace:
I used:

- bits from a Kan Ban card kit called 'Special Moments', found whilst sorting out the craft room here - the card is just one of the backing sheets trimmed, scored  and folded in half to A5 size

- a few self-adhesive pearls

We had about 6" of snow here yesterday in the end - hope you're all keeping warm and safe!



  1. A very cute card, but it is time for sleep. There are too many of us still awake tonight.Take care in all this ice and snow. xx Maggie

  2. I have that card kit too, just need to find it in amongst the stuff in my room. Really pretty card Di. Had about 5 inches of snow here, the garden looks gorgeous. Hugs, Amanda x

  3. This is beyond precious, Di! It's one that deserves to be clicked and enlarged to see those layers and how you overlapped the image. I love the diagonal treatment, too, and the pearls! Can't believe you "whipped this up fast!"

    I'm pulling on my boots and will head over with a shovel (to be attached to Mister, of course!)

  4. Morning Di, Your card is beautiful and l agree it should be on its side to capture the beauty of the layers, gorgeous image and layout lovely colours too .......enjoy your weekend xx

  5. Aaaaw that is so cute and I love the design. Can you send me some craft room tidy fairies. xx Flora

  6. Now that's a lovely pile of pals! What a sweet card Di. Loads of snow here too - I have thermals on and am gong nowhere! Vicky x

  7. A beautiful card Di, I love the image, especially the layers, and the corner pearls.

  8. Might've been quick to make, but it looks FAB.

    6" of snow . . . I have snow envy as I barely got an inch of the stuff. That's IT, I'm coming over to you for a snowball fight.

  9. That is so cute! I always thought that I didn't like pin... but after seeing this card (and the MOST GORGEOUS chair at Ikea today) I think I may be wrong.
    I love the diagonal in the background - really sets off the balloon in the main piccie. Adorable!
    You are so talented... I can't make cards nomatter how hard I try :(

  10. Fabulous card Di, love the colours and like it even more if it was a quick make.
    4" here. Took your advice on the Allsorts and Snippets but you had shut the gate by the time I got there. Well slammed in my face I should say. lol
    Will try again tomorrow and hope I can alter the link to the new week.
    Bet you are all snuggled up now.

  11. I've had a lovely clear in my craft room Di - it's amazing what you find. This is what I would call a great find! I love his big paws!

    Great card.
