Unfortunately having a nasty cold and some time off work got in the way of any midweek blogging this week. Thankfully, I felt much better today so headed to work. It's been a short week as I was just in part of Monday and today so by the time Monday comes round again I should be back on top form.
Tonight's card is a Valentine and made using a stamp I completely forgot I had. It was actually in a set given to me by my crafty pal Fiona a while back but I'd never got around to playing with it. Note to self - if craft stash was more organised I'd know exactly what I had where!
The stamp is from a Forever Friends Black & Gold set and has been coloured with Promarkers. The heart has been stamped again on the red spotty paper with a Versamark pad and heat embossed using Papermania Tinsel Red embossing powder for texture and a bit of bling. The papers are all Me To You With Love and were a magazine freebie a while back (I love my freebies don't I). The papers have all been layered with kraft card and faux stitched using a pokey tool and a Sakura Micron pen. The die cuts have all been made using X-cut nesting dies and the heart has been embossed using a dotty embossing folder. The sentiment is by LOTV and I've finished my card with spotty organza ribbon, a paper flower, pearls and gems.
Hopefully I've got caught up now with most of your blogs and left you some comments, when I was off sick the Kindle Fire came in very handy for doing that, I didn't even have to get out of bed. I'll take this opportunity to thank everyone who leaves comments for me too. It's very much appreciated as I know how much time it takes.
Enjoy your weekend whatever you're up to and hopefully see you back here soon.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
