Three Minute Thursday Good Luck

I was so looking forward to using last week's ColourQ inspiration but sadly, being called away meant I didn't get time. This week there's a very intriguing palette!


Greens and greys - aren't they gorgeous?! Greens are always associated with good luck in my mind (for some reason that I can't quite pin down at the moment...!) so I made a quick good luck card. Come and have a look:


This ornate frame from the free Sale-a-bration set Elementary Elegance is perfect for a focal sentiment and seems to be at home in pretty much any colour. Not only that but the set is free with any order of £45 or more - which just adds to its loveliness!


The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations and is one of my most-used sentiment sets with its gorgeous flowing scripts. I added the little bird from Elementary Elegance - I love the way these little images look when they're used as part of a sentiment.

Here's what you need to make today's card:
STAMPS: Elementary Elegance, Sincere Salutations,
INK: Basic Grey, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi
CARD STOCK: Naturals Ivory, Certainly Celery, Garden Green
OTHER: Stamp-a-majig
I'd be delighted to order any of these items for you and can have them delivered to your address in the UK. I'm committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to offer help and advice.
Until the 31st March you can choose a free stamp set or pack of papers as part of the Sale-a-bration promotion - with EVERY £45 you spend. Click here to see all the Sale-a-bration freebies.

Come and see the lemon meringue pie I made on Sunday:


My son isn't a big fan of cake so he asked me to make him a lemon meringue pie for his birthday instead. The last one of these I made was before I had the children!


It was pretty tasty, although I did wonder how we were going to get the candles in...


In the end my son lit and blew out one large candle 11 times which he enjoyed enormously!

I'm still trying to catch up after being away last week and after the weekend's birthday celebrations, so if I haven't been round to your blog yet I do apologise - I'll get there in the end!

See you tomorrow,

  1. This is a wonderful Good Luck card! This is one of my most used sentiments too and I think most of my customers have bought it. That pie is delicious. Our oldest daughter still wants apple pie for her birthday. I think lighting and blowing out the candle 11 times is a wonderful idea!

  3. Maybe you associate greens with good luck because of four leaf clovers? Loving all those springlike shades :)

  4. I love all the shades of green on this card. It's really beautiful, especially with that gorgeous frame. That lemon meringue looks divine. I remember my grandma making them when I was a little girl. I don't think I've had one in 30 years! Ann Y.

  13. Happy birthday to your son, you made me laugh over the candle, that's what I call recycling!

  14. Lovely card....a nice way to use those "intriguing" colors!!! (she said with a snarky grin!), and your pie looks delicious! That is not one of my favorites, but yours looks PERFECT. I have NEVER even made a lemon meringue pie! Seeing the candle reminded me of the time my sister, as an adult, wanted a Boston Creme pie instead of a birthday cake. Since her birthday is right around Christmas, we took a plastic candle from the windowsill and stuck it on top of the cake---cord & all!!! Glad your son had fun!!!

  18. Love those greens too on this weeks colourQ, the ornate frame looks just swell in the green and clever to use the mats to incorporate the other shades :0)
    The pie looks amazing, I'll take your word for how it tastes as I'm not a lemon fan !
    Blowing out a candle 11 times is a great idea...... I think I'd get quite light-headed if I tried that!!!!! Lol
