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 :)
