Alphabet Challenge - Letter Q for Quick and Simple

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been? As you might know we were at a funeral on Wednesday the whole day went well. The service was followed by a woodland burial, we had never been to one of these before, it was very moving and a lovely way to say goodbye.

The new challenge starts on the Alphabet Challenge blog today the letter is Q and the theme is Quick and Simple.


This is a really quick and simple card. It was going to be a shaker card but I didn't leave enough room for the foam tape. Not to be thwarted I changed the plan and used a scrap of spotted paper behind the die cut. 


I used the Perspective Happy Birthday dies designed by Sue Wilson.  You can use the positive and the negative from these dies. 


This is the same card being shown on Hochanda back in August. I made some samples for John Lockwood to use in his shows. I was so proud to have my cards shown along side John's and Sue Wilson's. As a thank when I saw John at Ally Pally he gave me the complete collection of his Birthday Seasons stamps sets. That was so kind of him. 


I do love these dies and I think they are brilliant for none fussy cards for men. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
