First of all I would like to say a BIG thank you for all your comments on yesterday's post - my first as a Creative Studio's DT member for Sam Poole and a special thanks to those of you who hopped over to Sam's site and also left a comment there, it really meant a lot to me.
I have been busy with these new stamps by Sam and there will be one every Tuesday on here and on Sam's site for the coming weeks. They are lovely stamps to work with and really got me in 'guy' cards mode, which is unheard of!!!
Talking of guy cards I have another one today...
This is another 7x7 card and was very quick and easy: for the base layer I used some 'Happy Birthday' paper from stash, which I dusted at the edges with Old Paper distress ink.
I matted and layered dark brown card on to white and used Cosmic Pearl PVA to create the little dots around the edge of the brown card.
To create the clock layer, I used a '"That Special Touch' mask, which I embossed and inked with the same distress ink. I then wrapped around with string and added a clock face embellishment.
To finish I stamped the greeting, cut to a flag shape and fixed with a brad. I was lucky to have a piece of ribbon in my offcuts box, that matched the rest of the card beautifully!
My day off today, but not much crafting...I am off to Chipping Sodbury to take my office volunteers out for a 'thank you' lunch in a local restaurant. I'm going to walk there and will be heading off slightly earlier than I need so that I can call in to my friend Amy's lovely gift and craft shop as I haven't had a mooch around in ages!
The Bank Holiday totally threw me as far as days are concerned, so I didn't get my desk photographed for WOYWW again this week!
Love and Hugs...and thank you so much for your visit,
