Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I am sharing some more of my Pattern Built Background cards today, all of these three cards had their backgrounds created with stamps, I hope to give your more little bits of inspiration as the week goes on.
Not much planned for us this weekend, I have a few jobs that I would like to get done but I don't like to be a 'Nag', so I will try and politely encourage Paul to starting a job, or atleast help me to start...the Pantry is Number One on the priority list, closely followed by a trip to the Local Tip to get rid of some of the Christmas cardboard, I think that the tip is one of Paul's least favourite destination!!
Right lets have a look at what we have been sent in to share...…..
I will leave Karen's description below:
"Here’s the card I finished late last night
It looked good in my head but...
I used SW Alphabet grid and it is such a pain to cut For instance it is only 5 squares wide So BIRTHDAY won’t fit and trying to realign it up is a nightmare So I ditched the grid I didn’t want to mess about cutting it in several colours So chose white and coloured the squares with DO only to realise some of the letters were a different shade of white! Plus I needed duplicates of some letters
The guy in question loves cake particularly chocolate The Die is another SW one I debossed the cake with a Crafts Too folder and covered the icing part with Nuvo Gloss white drops"
I have to say I love how the card turned out, the cake itself is a masterpiece with its textured cake layers and super glossy icing all topped off with a cherry. Your Colleague will absolutely love his card Karen, thank you so much for sharing it with us XXX
Michele's Magazine Review

It’s of ideas just using the free gifts.
That’s all for this week...
Some brilliant ideas in this issue Michele, it's great seeing inspiration for things other than cards using the magazine free gifts. Some lovely bright and cheerful inspiration too.
