A chevron thank you...

Morning Everyone...

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend, despite it being so soggy!

Just wanted to say a quick thank you for your lovely comments.  I was a bit worried after being off for such a long while that no one would read but they do.

So this weekend has been quite a busy one! I've had a to do list for several weeks but I really haven't had the motivation or the time to get cracking with it but Sunday I started and managed to cross a couple of things off which i'll be sharing with you over the next few days.

As many of you know, I have always been somewhat challenged by the design of a man card.  It was Adams Birthday a couple of weeks ago and received some lovely presents from family and friends.  I was bought up always writing "thank you" letters.  Now a days I think its equally important - and also it's an excuse to make some cards. This time though they had to be slightly manly - easy to reproduce and had to appeal to Adam as they were from him.  After days of wracking my brain and doodling layouts I came up with this after seeing an entry on Papertrey Inks blog.  

I absolutely LOVE Chevrons and ever since Pink Petticoat bought out this digital download my world has been a better place.  I picked 4 unisex colours, Pistachio, Turquoise, Buttermilk and Pebble.  I cut the strip of patterned paper just wide enough to fit the stamp on and mounted it onto the card base.  I stamped Papertrey Ink Think Big Favourites Number One - thanks so much to the bottom of the strip in black and voila!

Thanks so much for reading i'll be back soon to share what else I made this weekend :)

Hello Stranger...CFC59


I know, I know please don't faint or spit your cereal at the screen! Im back!

Sorry for my disappearance and my lack of explanation to be honest with you I lost my mojo.  After months of wedding invitations my mind was a bit of a blur.  I just needed a bit of time to myself.  I've still been reading your blogs and keeping up to date on challenges just from a distance!

I hope you're all ok.

I wanted to share a card with you to I made to send with a package for my bestie.  As soon as I saw this  recent Pink Petticoat release I knew I had to get my ink covered mits on it! After all, it is very me ;)

Liz released this set and two others a couple of weeks ago and I finally got round to downloading it last night.  I thought as I hadn't entered for a while I would try and make something for this weeks CAS-ual Friday blog challenge.  

Anyway enough of me rambling it is!

Ever so simple, incorporating two circles for the challenge, I love the polka dots (again another new release from Liz) and the pink is girly and gorgeous! I slightly folded in the wings so it looks like Ms Butterfly really is fluttering by.

Thats it from me this morning! Id love to here from you all again, if you're still there that is ;)

Thank you
