Fussy and Fancy challenge #197 Shabby Chic

Oh my goodness where did September go here we are again with another Fussy and Fancy Challenge, this time our host is  Jules and she has chosen Shabby Chic as her theme ...... that is very good timing because on Monday my granddaughter Lorna has her birthday. She has just moved into her first ever house and it is very obvious her style is Shabby Chic. So here is the card I made for her using Crafters Companion Dies this time and some lovely shabby chic papers from one of their cds, I do like to mix it up and try various types of crafting .... Jack of all trades ...master of none as My old granny used to say...... back to the card:

I still love making my own flowers so the rose is one of mine but I did cheat and use some pretty bought ones too.

At the moment I am trying out something new, it's a steep learning curve for me and my waste bin gets very full but I do find Clarity's Groovi system so therapeutic, I get lost for hours at a time. I also find it satisfying as I have tried traditional parchment in the past but I was too heavy handed and too impatient, so groovi really fills the gap. Here is the card I made for Lorna's housewarming:

and a Get well card for my lovely Daughter in Law Wendy:

These are very basic some of the more expert ladies make exquisite work, but I am enjoying the process. Please enter our challenge we love to see what you have made you can find more details here
Bye for now Annie xx
