Take Care

Just checking in! :) How's your weekend been shaping up - I know it's almost over.. what with it being Monday tomorrow.. but it's a LONG weekend for some of us, huh? Bank Holiday celebrations will continue, I'm sure. I'm lucky enough to have the day off tomorrow, so I'll feel all weird tomorrow morning when I have a lie in. Can't wait though.

So, I'm still keeping up with my post a day thing.. just. I know this is kinda late, but I've been a busy bee today. Logging onto the laptop before to upload my latest projects from my camera - I realised what a mess my folders and stuff were in! In amongst that mess was this card that I forgot to share with you all aaaaages ago.


The most delicious sentiment stamps ever from Waltzingmouse - Say it Loud set, stamped in Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede ink from SU! I've die cut the main panel with a Labels Eighteen die and outlined it with some dooooodles. Gotta love a doodle. Hmmm.. papers are from My Minds Eye Madison Avenue - which seems to be really tricky to get hold of now.

Pretty much minimal embellishment for this card. I used some yummy lace I got sent from a crafty friend alongside some die cut flowers and vellum leaves.

Sometime, when I have a free day - no deadlines, no work.. I hope to have a chance to sit down and makde a bunch of these sort of embellishments. Like clusters, in different colours. On standby. Ready to be used on a card that is needed quickly. To keep it simple - know what I mean? Gahh, anyway. I'm waffling.

You guys seen the Some Odd Girl DT Call, right? :) Come on now, who's applying?! I've been typing my application up - but I'm keeping it in my drafts for now, until I perfect it me thinks. Don't wanna go rushing - you have til July 1st!! One the same SOG track - I'll be back tomorrow with the card I rustled up for the new colour inspiration challenge! :)

Before I head off I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
