Relax and Enjoy! - Sunday 17th February

Hello Friends,

Before anything else...a big welcome to my 49th and 50th followers Suzanne and SanDee, thank you so much for choosing to join me!!! Of course thisI hope you are having a good weekend and fitting in lots of crafting! I'm sticking with monotone cards today, but this time a female offering!

I'm very sorry about the photo, I only had a short amount of time to take it before 'parting with it" last week and had to take it in the  artificial light we are plagued with this time of year....except yesterday when the sun finally shone! 

Tom and I popped into town (Chipping Sodbury that is!) and I wore a nice chunky jumper with no coat! We sat and read the paper in one of the lovely, bustling, coffee bars (coffee #1 this time) and then walked down to my friend Amy's shop: for my birthday (not until March) Tom is giving me a new Grand Calibur as mine finally gave up the ghost and was beyond repair, so I ordered it through Amy's shop and we collected it yesterday. Of course, I had full blessing not to have to wait another month before using it! Finally, after doing the weekly shop, we headed home - Tom for an afternoon of car washing and the craft room, where else?

This is part of a Kanban Stamp set, which Got last year in a bargain bucket somewhere! I stamped it  in black archival and heat embossed with clear holographic embossing powder to give it a shimmer...of course you can't see this on here! I used an 8x8 blank, matted and layered in black and white...the greeting is typed on the computer, but I went over it with a versa mark pen and heat embossed with the same embossing powder.

Ooh and one more DT cards are posted over at Fantastic Ribbons today, if any of you have the time, would really appreciate a  quick comment over there. Thank you! X

Thanks for stopping by, I'm sorry it's such a short post today!

Happy Crafting,
Carole X

  6. Hi Carole,
    superb card. Love the monochrome and that bath. Such a clever idea for a card. I think we all would wish for a bath like that one. Mind you it is many a year since I have been able to have a bath. Can't lift my self out of there it became too dangerous, so it's only showers now.
    You have a Birthday in March also snap. I have also bought a Birthday present with the money my Dad gave me for it.
    You really need your GC early how can a crafty person do without one. lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty week with the new GC.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
