Busy Week

I seem to have been out and about a fair bit this week but finally I've managed to make a card.  I've long been a fan of  House Mouse - such lovable little characters so this is what I've used.  Apologies for the fuzzy picture - the flowers made it too chunky to scan and the photo isn't one of my better efforts but it wasn't worth setting up a tripod for just one photo. (Just feeling lazy I guess). Of course making this has left me with more scraps of card and paper to use up so I may make something else using similar colours rather than store them away for future use.  I hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine and blue skies - rain threatened for Tuesday I believe so make the most of it.  Have a great weekend.

Ribbon and Lace

The challenge at Make My Monday this week is to use ribbon and/or lace and this is what sort of happened when I decided to have a go without any specific plan in my head.  The square embossing folder was one given away with a recent magazine - couldn't resist as usual!! I stamped a simple flower from the Sweet summer set by Stampin' Up, coloured with Copic pens. The little vase is the SU Christmas bauble punch with a slice chopped off, then it was embossed.  In actual fact the mauves on this card really match well for real but again the scanner seems to have changed the tones slightly which is a shame. Some cream lace was added to an X-cut punched border.  I've not added a greeting at this point as it always nice to have a few cards with no particular occasion in mind.
