Playing catch up

>> Monday, 26 January 2009

Thomas and I had a lovely weekend away. He enjoyed spending lots of time with his nanny and being spoilt rotten and I enjoyed my visit to the Stitch and Creative Crafts show. I was a little bit disappointed that there weren't more stamps on sale and no-one was selling bazzil cardstock! But I got some lovely papers, buttons & beads etc so I came home happy. But now I'm playing catch up at home, trying to cook some meals for Thomas for the freezer and get back on top of the washing (I was only away for 2 days!)

Last night was a late one trying to get this card finished. I've used the sketch from this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge and followed the Basic Grey challenge recipe. The card is DL size but with an extra flap. The papers are BG Eva. I tore the main panel and then inked the edges with Amethyst and Burgandy versacolor. Tilda is coloured with Prisma pencils - I've been practising so much with my distress inks I think I've forgotten how to use these! The ribbon is from a BG fibres pack and I made the bow from this lovely wire ribbon I bought at the weekend - can't wait to play a bit more with this stuff, its great! The flowers are Prima and the button, spacer and brads are from my stash.
