The unpredictable weather continues...

A a result I have spent the last two weekends gardening.....breaking all my self imposed rules.....and I'm now paying the consequences.  The garden is looking very respectable but I ache, my hands are painful and swollen and I've been exhausted for the past week. I managed to make a card yesterday though, so I think I'm getting back to normal...whatever normal is.
Here are 3 cards....the first 2  I made before I did the gardening.
The first one a quilling card ...for my friend Anne's birthday...made using an onion holder. Kept it simple and added pearls and a spotty organza ribbon.


This one was for my niece, and used papers by Nancy Watt...pearls again and a bit of lace. It doesn't show in the pic but I added a smidgen of glitter to the pansy petals.


And the last entry for this month's inspirational challenge on the Crafters Re-United forum.
The theme has to be based on a film but the card must be black and white. Struggled a bit with this one but then a trawl through my computer turned up this Dustin Pike image. Perfect.."The Graduate."
Was  bit fazed with the "colouring"'s all about shade and shadow.....but not too bad a job I think.

Thank you for looking.
