Good Morning My lovelies,
I hope that you are all well and not letting this shocking weather get you down! I just can't believe how blooming cold it is, both of my Girls were walking round hugging hot water bottles last night as they got wet on the way home from School and just couldn't warm up, they always make me laugh as there is always one of them wearing my big fluffy pyjama top, I never get the chance to wear it, it's usually been put away by this time of year, but I guess the old wives tale is true "Cast not a clout til May is out"!! I can hear my Nan saying it now! A lot of those old wives tales are pretty accurate, do you ladies remember things that your parents or grandparents used to say?
Today's card is my version of the Challenge card, the day just seemed to disappear yesterday so I didn't think that I would get one done, I finally set at my craft desk at 9.10 pm (after spending some time with the girls), I wanted to make a 'Stampin' Up! Card but I don't have anything 'Masculine' really, so I reached for one of my favourite SU stamp sets 'Gorgeous Grunge' and two ink pads 'Dapper Denim' and the new 'Lemon Lime Twist', cut my self a piece of white card and just randomly stamped around the card to create a messy background, I love the effect that you get. I did add in the lattice type stamp from 'Timeless Textures' too. I then stamped the Happy Birthday from ' Big on Birthdays' set on a piece of white card, added a couple splatters and mounted onto 'Lemon Lime Twist' and 'Dapper Denim' card and popped into my card, I hope you like it !!
