A little bit Cocky...

Good Evening Everyone!

How has everyones Friday been? I love that feeling when you know you have come to the end of the week and the next two days are just for you - where you can do anything you want (apart from anyone who works at the weekend, which I am tomorrow! :( )

Ok I want to show you something today that I am so pleased with.  I mean not slightly chuffed with,  amazed actually that I have created something so simple but also so beautiful.  I am in total ore of this. Hope you will be too.

I bought this Hero Arts stamp from the Glitter Pot- I've had my eye on it for sometime.  I don't know what it is but I love Peacocks, I know they can be pretty nasty but they are also so beautiful.  I wanted to create a really simple card but something that still stood out.  I used a 6x6 white card base and added a teal border and then white on top and stitched round both frames.  I stamped the peacock using black ink and left to dry.  I didn't want to colour the image in but I wanted to add some colour so I decided to use simple stick on gems in various colours.  The sentiment is one of my new ones from Papertrey Ink- Ribbon Tails.  I umm'd and arr'd over which sentiment to use, I don't have a use for this card yet so I wanted to leave my options open so opted for "Best Wishes". What do you think?

So that's it from me tonight, sorry it was short and sweet.  Hope you like it, I look forward to reading your comments.

Check back tomorrow for something nice and shiny.

Have a good evening.
