"Another for a Sketch"

Hello and welcome, hope you are all well, dry and warm.
Thank you for calling in to see what I have been up to.   Not a lot of card making so far, I have been playing with.........Air Dry Clay!!!  I bought some and a few animal moulds for Robert for Christmas.  He has had so much fun I thought I might have a go.  I will show you some of my efforts sometime soon.   Weather here has been absolutely awful most of the day, plenty time for playing once the boys went home after lunch.
My card today has been added to the  Did not make it for that but thought it might fit in.  I really do not do challenges.   However when you do one and see your name mentioned it fairly spurs you on.

Base card 6 x 6
SB Die to emboss round the oval
SB Classic Oval
SB Blossom Five for the Rose
SB Foliage
Craft Cord
XCut Butterfly Punch
Heart Brad
Organza Ribbon

That`s it for today off to visit some Blogs then play some more with my Clay!!!
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it
Till next time

  1. Oh, it's getting creepy Patricia! I've just made some air dry clay frames. I've still to colour them but we are definitely on the same wavelength at the mo. :) Love the card, so beautifully crafted. I really like the curly leaves. May have to 'borrow' that idea. x

  2. Hello Patricia, beautiful card, wonderful design and colours. Those little butterflies are so lovely as are your blooms, hugs Kate x

  3. Hi Patricia
    Another stunning entry for HOC. Love how you have cut the oval off the page. Good luck with the challenge.
    Never used air drying clay before, just Fimo to make my own beads and jewellery. Look forward to seeing what you made.
    Best wishes.

  14. Great job Patricia. Thanks for sharing your talent with us this week at HOC.

  15. So glad your fame at HOC has spurred you on to greater creativity. This is a gorgeous card and fits perfectly with the sketch. Thanks for joining us again at House of Cards. Have a great day.

  16. Morning Patricia, A really pretty card, loving how you have cut the oval off the page, and the embossing and flower and foliage are gorgeous.
    Glad you are enjoying playing with the clay, I haven't tried yet, but when I've seen Mel playing with it on C&C I've thought how therapeutic it looks squeezing and pulling it, I have no idea what it feels like, but the embellies look stunning when dry. Enjoy.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  17. Hi Patricia a gorgeous card the flower and leaves look gorgeous. I have some Air Dry Clay and loads of moulds too which I have a play with I had a spell years ago of putting them on my cards and now it seems to have come back in fashion. Susan xx

  18. Morning Patricia,
    Love your card, very effective way you have cut the oval, inspired is the word. Good luck with the challenge.

  19. Hi Patricia I look forwards to seeing what you are making with your clay. Great card there, lovely floral and butterfly arrangement.
    Have a good week ahead.
    Hugs Erika.

  20. Really pretty Patricia. I think this would make a great Easter card because the oval reminds me of an Easter egg. Play nicely with your clay and we'll wait for the results. Hugs Christine xx

  21. Hi Patricia,

    Love your card. Thank you. I have had some of that clay for about six months and never got around to having a play until last week when my grandchildren came. My only problem was finding some children friendly moulds. The ones I had were mainly flowers or pretty moulds for cards but they enjoyed the baby ones I found. A rattle, dummy etc so some animal ones would be ideal. They are so delicate and light.

    Much love,

  22. Fab card again and good luck with the challenge and well done on coming in the top five with your last entry xx tempted to have a go myself either for this one or Hobbycutz as John next Door says they are looking for entries xx just need to get my a.. in gear!! xx GailT xx

  23. Oh, your beautiful card really conveys a sense of spring Patricia! The sweet butterflies and touch of pink makes me long for spring even more now ;-) How lovely to hear you are playing with clay, too, I am playing with clay at the mo, too (well, not at the mo, since my laptop would get dirty all over, duh! ;-) Can't wait to see what you come up with, maybe your stunning roses?? Yes please?? Hugs, Ira x
