Home Sweet Home

Hey!

OK, apologies for being a naughty blogger. You just wouldn't believe how much I'm up to my eyeballs in work at the mo! Seriously, I can't believe we're only on week 2 of a 6 week term! Bring on the bank holiday weekend LOL!

So I'm gonna confess that I'm sharing a card today that I made ages ago. I hadn't got around to uploading it seeing as Royal Mail became a Royal Pain in taking ages to deliver it to the intended recipient! I nearly thought it was a gonna but it just took a very long detour around the UK or was sat in a sorting office just waiting for it's time to come...

Card Recipe
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Daily Designs/Daily Designs Sentiment/Polka Dot Basics II
Ink: Versamark/Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate/Aqua Mist/Raspberry Fizz/Kraft
Accessories: Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz Grosgrain Ribbon/Martha Stewart Border Punch/Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Promarkers


This card was made pre-apron lace punch purchase, so I just layered a dotted scallop border close to the aqua mist cardstock to try and create the same effect. No where near as fab as the apron-lace punch, but it kept me happy until I had that new toy in my possession *grin*

Sorry 'bout the quick post today! I'm hoping your week is going well and I'll hope to catch up with y'all at the weekend. That is, if I've survived this working week LOL!

Catch ya later!

Sweet card and yummy colors! I was playing with the birdhouses in the Bird Watching set earlier this week and then never got to finish it! I was called to fill in where I used to work again so that cut into my stamping time! Only two more days until the weekend break though!! Have a good one.........
