Crafting day!...

Good afternoon, dear Blogging buddies!  Today, I have thrown caution to the wind and sat at my crafty table ALL DAY, creating!  I needed a bit of time off from the festivities and was totally inspired by the uber talented Jen's cards from Deconstructing Jen - I am loving her style of cards at the minute and although I don't have a lot of dies like she has (I'd love to spend a day in her craft room!) I always find HUGE inspiration from her designs!  I have ended up with 6 cards...yes, that's right 6 and another one ready for a topper to go on!  So, I will have some crafty makes to share with you up to the big day - I will be scheduling them, so they may be short and sweet (I need to find a quicker way of posting as it takes me an age to upload pics, crop and write a blog post, so am going to try doing a card recipe rather than boring you all with the details!)

So for today's card, I have taken inspiration from THIS card that Jen made...
Card recipe -
5x7 Chocolate Brown card base
Orange gingham and green leaf paper from Lawn Mower Set
Red polka from BBQ Set, both A Play on Words CD
Kraft card for mat and layering
Marianne button flower and leaf die
Spellbinders Labels Eleven
Distress Inks - Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint
Polka Dot Satin ribbon
Narrow brown Satin ribbon
...I created the sentiment in PS and added a printed insert to finish.
Hope you're having a totally terrific Thursday and I'll be back tomorrow with some more craftiness!
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
#237 Anything Goes until 20th
Anything Goes until 8th Jan
Anything Goes closes today
Something to Die For until 23rd
Anything Goes until 20th

This is gorgeous Lisa, I love the design and such beautiful colours.
Thanks for your comment on my card, I am so lucky to be part of the Dies to Die for DT which means I get to borrow some fabulous dies, that's probably why it seems that I have so many!
