MAWTT July Challenge . . . . . . . . .

Good morning all you lovely blogging folk. Only a couple of days gap since my last offering as its time for another challenge for Team A over at MAWTT.

This month's challenge has been set by by the lovely Janice T  and is . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

No design papers

Please pop over and see what the other gals have done for your inspiration and delectation. And, why not have a go and enter the challenge as there is lots of scope with Janice's theme.

Now, my card was a commission, if you will, from my pal Davey (he who is the Phileas Fogg of Coventry). He, himself, celebrated his 70th last month (I've yet to feature his card) and he asked me if I would make a card for his lovely sister in law, who was also approaching 70. I was happy to oblige, as I was fast becoming an expert on making 70th birthday cards by that point lol!!!
The colour choice was David's but you all know I love a bit of purple action.

Cream card
Lilac card (Lidl)
SB Bitty Blossoms (it had to be lol!!!)
SB Butterfly Circles die
Docrafts circle dies
CE Stitched Bunting Numbers stamps
CE Jacobean Floral embossing folder (Had to have it as soon as I saw it)
Cadbury (other chocolate is available) purple ribbon (Mei Flower)
Bling butterfly from a pack that was a present from Wendywoo (Spanish Crafter)
Dusty Concord DI
Docrafts teeny bling

The card was enjoyed by it's recipient so all's good.

I hope that you can join in with us at MAWTT as it would be lovely to see some of your wonderful creations entered into the challenge.

Ended up back in hospital Tuesday night.........I'm thinking of getting a season ticket! 
I'm still keeping everything crossed for Sunday and getting to Silverstone. Much to Jenson Buttons relief, I probably won't have the energy to throw my underwear (clean, before you ask) at him lol!!!

Until next time, you all take care and makes people wonder what you've been up to lol!!!

  1. Like this idea Ang. I am in the middle of making a 70th card too, incorporating lacemaking and quilting.
    Hope the doctor's visit had good results. Enjoy Silverstone - an area for locals to avoid this weekend as traffic and helicopter activity will be horrendous.

  2. Morning Ang, this is a gorgeous 70th card and could be used for any age.

  6. Morning Ang,
    Gorgeous card. Keeping my fingers crossed for Sunday, hope you are well enough to go.
    An talking of smiling, I always have a smile when I read your blog.
    Take care.

  7. Hi Ang, sorry you've had yet another dash to the hospital, hope you get used to the meds and start to feel tons better soon. Hope all goes well for Silverstone. I bet Jenson can't wait to see you in the crowd.
    Love the card today. There was definitely a baby boom in 1946 so many birthdays, all those amorous men coming home from the war. I'm a 46 gal myself so I know about these things.
    Take care Ang.
    Love Val in Spain xxx

  8. Beautiful. Just stunningly beautiful... hope all's ok your part of the world.xx{aNNie}

  9. Stunning. I look every day but don't always have time to comment I love it when you inset those roses into a circle like that. Yes, I hit 70 last month, so I too was part of the baby boom.

  10. This is gorgeous Ang. I thought I recognised that butterfly, they do make a lovely addition to a card. Fingers crossed for you for Sunday. xxxxx

  11. Ang, you are not doing well are you, infact I think you should just book a side room and make it comfortable with all you own bits. No joking apart I hope you feel well enough for Sunday that's the GP you like going to!
    Love your card. Good choice of colour too!
    Please take care. Hazel xxx

  12. Hi Ang a lovely card you definitely have a knack with the flowers they look great. Having everything crossed for the weekend so just relax the rest of the week. I've got the sherry bottle but not sure where I've packed all the glasses. Doh idiot!! Love from Jackie xx

  13. Oh Ang I'm so sorry to hear that you landed up in hospital again, not good and I hope you had a better experience than the last visit. Keeping everything crossed that you manage Silverstone at the weekend.
    Gorgeous card with you signature colour, your blooms are stunning, please take care of yourself, nothi strenuous, hugs Kate x

  14. Hi Ang

    Firstly this is a fab card

    I'm so sorry to hear you had to go to hospital again and hope you do make your trip on Sunday!

    My husband and I are thinking of buying shares in our local GP Surgery as we seem to be there every week..... we do alternate weeks, Mr F then the following week herself!

    Take care

  15. All I can think is that there is a hunky doc that you've got your eye on!!!! Hope you ere well soon - particularly for Sunday! I had to smile at your card - as you say similar layouts nd similar colours. Can't go wrong with a bit of purple can you? Hugs Christine xx

  16. Hi Ang! Love the beautiful purple roses. Hope you are well enough to enjoy your GP on Sunday.
    Take care!

  17. Hello Ang, what a stunning card, I love purple, and this is beautiful with the roses. Hope you are ok, and manage to get to Silverstone on Sunday. take care. Bx

  18. Your card is utterly gorgeous, Ang! She will feel like absolute royalty!

    Now, wth, the hospital again?! I'm so sorry. I do hope they got you sorted so you can enjoy Sunday! Ginfers crossed!! But do take care ~ you've got me to meet soon!! Hugs, Darnell

  19. Hi Ang, simply a beautiful card....and yes love the shades of purple (as you know !!). Hope you manage to get to Silverstone...even if you have to be carried in LOL !!! Enjoy the weekend. Janice x

  20. I have everything crossed for you for Sunday too! Beautiful card with your signature roses

  21. Hi Ang, such a lovely card, the flowers are beautiful. Hope you make Silverstone, and have a great day, but do take it easy.

  22. Hello Ang,
    Fabulous card, I love it. My OH brother was born exactly 9 months to the day after his father returned from the war, funny that!!!!
    I'm sorry to read that you took advantage of the NHS again. The sooner they get you sorted, the better. Have you got your scan date yet? What tests did they do this time? Are they doing anything? Sorry, so many questions, but I don't understand why they are not moving faster. I was at the Rapid Response Unit quicker than you can say Formula One, so I hope they do something soon.
    Now take it easy with Jensen when you see him, we don't want him to get overexcited when he spots you!!! I hope you are well enough to get there, and enjoy it.
