What a Week?!

Crikey, this week has been manic! Because I knew I was having a few days off at the tail end of the week, I had to go like crazy to finish up stuff at work. I even had to bring stuff home - huff. Consequently, I've had absolutely no time to do any crafting or blogging at all this week. Sorry I've been neglecting your blogs, I hope to have a shoot round today or tomorrow. I've picked up a few little bargains over the last couple of days and also collected my SU stuff from Sam yesterday, so I am dying to get crafting now!

Although, I am going to have to take a few hours off from stamping up a storm this afternoon as I am having my shoulder length hair all lopped off (it's now about 2-3 inches longer than it is in my profile pic!). Think Rhianna, Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud or Victoria Beckham and you will get an idea of what I am aiming for! As drastic as it sounds, I have had my hair like that before and I really liked it. Fingers crossed it all goes OK this time!

Anyways, luckily I did manage to make a card last weekend that I haven't yet shown you. It wasn't for a challenge or anything, it was a 'just for fun' card! It also gave me chance to ink up one of my Rubber Romance stamps that I got a couple of months ago but haven't yet used.

I think this Basic Grey paper works brilliantly with the Rubber Romance images. The images are bold and the papers are bold so it's a great combination. I will admit to getting the proportions a bit wrong on this card and so had to attach a punched border panel to the bottom to try and balance things out. I think it looks OK now though.... just hope you agree!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Rubber Romance.
Paper: Basic Grey - Scarlets Letter, DCWV CS, Bazzill Smoothie CS and black card from stash.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Hobbycraft border punch, heart charm from ebay, ribbon and brads from stash.

Thanks for visiting!
