I really feel I should take the advice of the sentiment on this next card..... what a week?! Things have been a bit manic at work as I had a tricky deadline so I've been staring at spreadsheets for 7 hours a day. I've been a bit pooped by the time I've got home so subsequently, not much crafting going on unfortunately. However, I did manage this one using the MFT stamps Ali got me for Christmas.......
During a quick trip into Hobbycraft last Sunday, I spotted these gorgeous American Crafts papers in the sale and somehow they 'fell' into my basket.... Then, I turned the corner and came face to face with the punches. I stared at the display longingly, hoping a Martha Stewart punch (or 7!) would appear. Unfortunately, no such punch was in sight. However, I did find the one I used on this card. OK, it's no MS masterpiece. BUT, it was a whole lot cheaper....... £2.99! What a blinkin' bargain?!
Stamps: My Favorite Things - Serenity Now.
Paper: American Crafts - The Goods 'Baby Girl'.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Hobbycraft border punch, Prima flowers, Cuttlebug Oval Die, Poppicrafts ribbon, bead spacers from ebay.
I'm a bit excited as I'm going to my first ever Stampin' Up party on Monday night. Mmm, just think of all those lovely goodies.... I've got a wish list already and that's before I'm surrounded by temptation! My invitation says I can bring a friend so if you live anywhere near Southampton and fancy being my +1, just let me know!
Right, best be off! Gotta make Ali's valentines card tonight. Nothing like cutting it fine eh?!
