Three little Cards

Hello Blog friends, how are you all??  Hope you all had a good weekend.
Thank you for taking time out to come visit me here in my corner of Blogland.  I love to have you here.
We had a great day on Saturday, it was a beautiful sunny day.  Clear blue skies, freezing cold but you can wrap up against that.  John Jnr. phoned asking if we would like to go with them to Lunan Bay near Montrose.   Picnic packed from this end, we went along, met up and off we went.  Boys had to come in our car, we always have their seats in so no problem.  Gives Mum and Dad a while to themselves.  Got there, up over the sand dunes on to the beach which was actually quite busy.  Very cold walking along by the water but it was so wonderful just be out in the sun.  We had our picnic  nestled in the sand dunes near the cars where it was pleasantly warm.  A Great Day had by all.
Woke up Sunday and guess what??? Yep!! snowing again.  It did not lie but who wants snow in April where has Spring gone???  This morning when I opened the curtains it was snowing yet again.  Cleared up and we did have a rather pleasant afternoon.   

 This morning I started clearing away a pile of Crafty bits and pieces that had gathered over last week.  I did intend putting them in the box for the School.  When I had a look I thought mmmmm!!! I could get a few cards out of some of those bits.  Here are the cards, it is amazing what you can do if you put your mind to it.  These are just little cards that I will pop in with gifts.
I have a box that I put Die Cuts in plus little bits of embossed card that I have left over from projects. I also have a tub that I pop waste bits from some of the Dies I feel I can use.   There was nothing to do other than cut the bits to fit and put the cards together.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you take time to leave comments, I read them all.

  17. Hi Patricia,
    superb little gift cards. Wonderful idea using the dies to give the edges some pretty patterning. I love the 3 different designs.
    When will we have some spring, I think we will go straight into summer as that's what happened to autumn too. We near enough went straight into winter, that's what has made it so long this year.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
