Busy Bee Weekend!

What a busy couple of days! We just got back from a fun and eventful packed weekend at Alton Towers, and I'm absolutely shattered. There's so much to tell you, but I will leave it for another night, but as usual whenever I'm involved, there was drama galore!

Tonight I have another card made at the Glitter Pot demo, but this time I have used the Hampstead Collection of gorgeous papers, embossed transfers and flowers. I LOVE this collection - it's so warm and comfortable, like putting on a pair of old slippers and having a hot chocolate!


As the sketchy flowers are gorgeous, I immadiately reached for that particular paper, and used Colorbox chestnut ink to slightly distress the edges. I added a co-ordinating paper to the bottom and covered up the join with one of the glittered cardstock borders. Mmm, scallops!

The frame around the embossed transfer greeting is one of the flowers from the Hampstead Collection, and I've added white gel pen dots for a little more interest. Hope you like it.

Anyway after a great weekend, best get to bed. Hope you had a great weekend too!
