Crafty Creations #80 & Simon Says & Rosie-D's #77

Hi girls. Welcome to my blog where I hope you find something that brings a smile. I am so pleased you had time to call in to see me. Yesterdays weather back to being overcast but at least it was dry. I hope it picks up for the weekend because my eldest son and family are coming up from Solihull for a week.
I made this card to enter three challenges. Crafty Creations wanted "Winged Things", Simon Says ... There ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues where we had to use some blue (I hope there is enough blue in this one), and Rosie-D's who wanted "More than onew fold". The image is a Dragonfly by Creative Expressions painted with Twinkling H2Os. The paper is from Papermania's Capsule Collection and some Bazzil Bling as a mount.Very few embellishments - just some ribbon. A card without flowers - now there's a novelty from me.

The second photograph shows the card partially open just to give the effect and show the sentiment. I hope you like this card because I enjoyed making it. Perhaps you can find an extra minute to leave a comment to give me your opinion. I love reading what you have to say about my creations. Your views are always appreciated.
Just to remind you that this is the third day of Teri's week long frebbie giveaway over at Delicious Doodles. Click on the picture in my sidebar to pop across to see what is available today.
I hope all is well with you and that your week is going well. Take care and feel free to visit again.
Love and Hugs,

  8. Fabulous hun - loving the z-fold format. No flowers? Aren't there some on the dragonfly? OK, not your handmade luvlies, but still flowers, LOL.
    Back to the wet stuff here, shame. First day back at school and it's blooming wet! Ah, peace at last! No yelling for a few hours.
    Have a great day hun - and thanks again for the adverts!!

  23. How beautiful is that dragonfly! I love dragonflies, they're always around my swimming pool in summer time and sometime come in the house. I at least manage to catch them and get them out again.
    PS: great suggestion for my post, I knew I was just being stupid, lol!
    take care.
