Simply D-Lite-ful at My Crafty Heart

Hello my lovelies how are you all today? Thank you for your get well wishes, I'm at the docs tomorrow to be sent for tests......really nervous but hey I'm a tuff cookie & they aint gonna break my choccy chips ;0)

Anyhoos onto my cards today, yes double the action check me out lol. I have made 2 CAS cards..........I know I know, altho I managed to put a teeny bit of my foofiness on ;0)
I got some fabbylicious new dies from Teresa at My Crafty Heart & of course some more fell in my basket, oops!! They are the gorgeous new D-Lites & here is what cards I've made using a few of them.
The papers I've used on this are Glitz Design 'Vintage Blue' this is such a gorgeous pad I have to say. I've used dark blue A4 card & a creamy/beige kinda like Sandstone colour A4 card for all the matting.
My actual cards are made from suede feel A4 card.

I have used D-Lite 'Flourish Trim' along the middle & in the centre I have used 
D-Lites 'Frame 1' for the centre. Sentiment is WOJ. I also added Pearls.

The seam binding, twine & button are from my stash.

This one is actually my favourite & 1 I'm actually happy with for a change lol. No DP's on this one I've just used my suede feel card again & added pink shimmer card in between.

For the centre I used D-Lites 'Medallion 2' on a piece of card then cut the card to centre it, it worked easier doing it this way. I added a Prime flower to the centre.

I added a pink bow, which I really cant remember where it came from lol. The sentiment is from a stamp in my stamp collection.

There you go 2 simple cards using a couple of the new D-Lite dies from Spellbinders. I think its nice to keep a few of these simple ones in for when you need one in a hurry or just want to give one to someone just to let them know you think of them.........that is always nice to know.

Ingredients used........
Spellbinder D-Lites 'Flourish Trim' - MCH
Spellbinder D-Lites 'Frame 1' - MCH
Spellbinder D-Lites 'Medallion 2' - MCH
Prima 'Tea Thyme' flower - MCH
Pearls - MCH
WOJ Sentiment stamp - MCH

I've done some blogging this morn but still have lots to do so better get moving lol.
Thanks for stopping by it really does mean so much to me mmwah.
