..... Where has this week gone? It only seems like yesterday that I was writing my first post about our super cool CR84FN54 colours! And this week I'm actually up to date with commenting - I've really enjoyed seeing all the wonderful cards submitted so far! If you've not joined in yet, or if you fancy playing again, you've got another week to play.
I taken the flowers (again) as the inspiration for my card - the photos are courtesy of Style Me Pretty - and they are that!!
While unpacking all my stash I came across some (a lot) of stuff that has been sadly neglected, specifically lots of super designer papers. I've set myself the task of trying to use up some of this stash.
I started by cutting the designer paper to fit onto my base card and added some faux stitching (sewing machine still not unpacked!) in silver pen. I used my Spellbinder dies to cut the pretty flowers and sentiment label. I finished off by adding just a touch of bling! While I'm here in the States I'll be sending quite a few cards home to friends and family, just to keep in touch - and this one will be going to Kathy.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compact Sentiments II, Vintage Labels 25

Over at CAS-ual Fridays - CFC53, the challenge is to use punches to create a clean and simple design, so I'm submitting this to the challenge this week.
One bit of really good news is that I have a car for a few weeks. I'm no longer housebound!!! I'll be able to get out and visit the area - do some shopping, visit the local towns and pop into a few of the local craft stores. Archivers - here I come!!!! That's all for now.

- I'm married to my best friend, Jonathan, and he's very supportive, or should that be tolerant, of my crafting addiction!!! We have two wonderful children, Ben and Kathryn. I am blessed with a loving family and am surrounded by friends, both virtual and real-life. I believe in life-long learning and graduated a couple of years ago with a BSc in Chemistry. If I'm not in my craft room making cards, then you might find me reading, taking photos, or simply being with the family.
