A couple of Be Creative floral cards

Here are a couple of cards that I made for Be Creative, using their wonderful paper pads and their alcohol markers. Did you see their shows on Hochanda? If so you may have already seen these. For the first I coloured a woodware singles rose. I covered the front of the card with the paper (I think it is from the vintage memories pad) and then coloured the rose border to match my rose and the one on the corner of the paper. I used a cream marker to add a little colour to the pearl and finished with an organza bow and a bit of tea dye DI around the edge.
My second card was made using paper form the floraella pad and a digi image from Teri Sherman's Delicious doodles etsy shop, coloured with Be Creative alcohol markers. The gems were also coloured with the markers and I added a pale blue bow and ribbon.   I am quite proud of these two bows. I really need a bow maker, but managed these without. I haven't tied a decent bow since though, lol!
Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my last post. I am more or less recovered now, although it has taken a week to get rid of the worst of the cough. That has been the most tiring thing. Time really doesn't seem to be on my side at the moment, and I am sorry I am not able to comment in blog land as much as I would like.
Meg went back to uni on Friday ready for her first placement in a hospital. I am hoping that the snow doesn't affect her too much as she is relying on trains and buses to get her to and from Barnsley each day for a fortnight. How is the snow where you are? We have had about an inch, but no more than that, and I don't think it will affect me getting to work.
Justin and Gordon have three more shows tomorrow on Hochanda. Do tune in and watch if you can at 11am, 3pm and 6pm.
Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous cards, Sally. Hope Meg doesn't suffer too much with the snow - it causes such disruption! We had a couple of centimetres but it's all gone now. Wish I could have gone to Kew today rather than yesterday, to see it in the snow though!

Beautiful designs Sally. I especially love the rose one and it's perfectly coloured!

Fingers crossed for Megan ' s travels and I hope she enjoys it. Glad to hear you are on the mend but the cold viruses doing the rounds at the moment are dreadful aren't they. They really seem to linger.

These are two beauties. Makes me think of the Chelsea flower show. Roll on the spring/summer. We have no snow here just perishing cold.
hope you feel better soon and can shift that nasty cough. hugs Mrs A.
