Late night blogging after a busy day

Good morning!

I'm late on the go tonight or should I say I'm very early this morning?  We have had a busy day today, my husband had a day off so we decided to go to Landmark which is a Forest Adventure Park near Aviemore.  It's just a short drive away from us which is just as well as it was teaming with rain and not the best for driving in.  Once we were there we wrapped up warm and didn't let the rain get in our way.  Iona loved the roller coaster and the water slides!  On the way home we stopped for chips so I was able to get straight into some crafting when I got home which was just as well as I had to make a Wedding Card for later today!

So onto the card, I have to say it is very plain even by my usual standards but with such an ornate die it really doesn't need much other embelishment.

I've used a square cardblank and matted and layered white card onto navy blue card, then holographic mirri card.  I've used the holographic card again for the die-cut which is by Marianne.  The sentiment is a new stamp I've just got from Stampin' Up which I've stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with silver Papermania embossing powder.  I've added a few pearls and that's it.  Very CAS!

Since finishing my card I've had my hougie board out and made half a dozen mini pizza boxes which I'm going to decorate and fill with goodies for Halloween!  But right now bed is calling me zzz!


  1. Hi Shona, its a beautiful card, and your right the die is so lovely it's all it needs. Your layout is lovely and the colours of card,fab with the silver. have a good day, kate x
