What an evening!

It began with a few ideas but ended with what could only described as a bombsite! If the card I made hadn't of been so beautiful (if I do say so myself) I would have given up crafting for a bit just to get over the trauma!

Good Grief, paper and card stock flying everywhere, bits of ribbon, jars of buttons falling on the floor and then me deciding that the floor was the best place for them! You guys just don't know the half of it. 

Thank God for 7 year old Cameron is all I can say; who came downstairs, shook his head and said, "mummy this place is a mess, let me help you tidy up". I love that kid!

Right, well here it is....

The background has been embossed with silver embossing powder. Before making this card, I have to say that embossing in this fashion was not a favourite of mine. But the lack of any patterned paper led me to experiment and I really do love the way it has turned out!

This card will be winging it way to sunny Spain courtesy of a loving brother. I do hope they like it. How nerve racking when you make cards for others.

Ohhh, I almost forgot! Here is another card I today, almost seems like a distant memory now.

Ta Ta for now

Finally I can leave my message! These are lovely, love the "au natural" look of the top one - that's my favourite.
