Hi there bloggies!
This is a little card that I put together yesterday … and it took far longer than it should have. I sat looking at this Framed Tulips embossed card piece that I had sitting on my desk … wondering what on earth to do with it. I was struggling with mojo … and the fairy dust sent by Kim & Monika didn’t last too long! Perhaps it was the constant phone calls … that interrupted my mojo flow several times … but I guess in the end this wasn’t too bad an effort! ??? 😉
I have done a card recipe for this one … but really it is pretty self explanatory. I sponged some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint lightly around the embossed edge. It did add a prettiness & an extra “touch” to the card. I feel like it needs something more … but can’t really put my finger on it??? Perhaps you have an idea??? ❓
A little tip: This chocolate stamp actually comes attached to a phrase … but with your ‘clear mount’ sets … there is always the option of cutting the phrase & image apart. That’s what I did and it made it super easy to create this background.
My two (at home) girls took me out to the movies last night. I needed a distraction … and although very tired … I really enjoyed the outing with them. We went and saw Larry Crowne! The perfect ‘girly’ movie! 😀 It was so nice to have some ‘time out’ … and it was a lovely escape for a couple of hours.
Off to visit mum … with my bestie! Hopefully it will be a nice distraction for mum … and will lift her spirits a little. She is doing it hard at the moment … a bit down in the dumps! 😀 (Not that I blame her for one minute!) Anyway … a little company today for her should be a help! See you all soon. Hugs xxaxx
