Flowery Best Wishes

Good Evening!

Well, what a hectic day - I had a good few things that I really wanted to get done today for September's issue of Creativity! Magazine, and it wasn't until 7pm that I actually got around to doing them! I have a few hours on Ideal World from the 9th July, and I was e-mailing, phone calling and generally trying to sort that out before the weekend was in full swing. I really feel as though I've done nothing if I haven't done what I had planned - even if I actually got a lot done doing something else!

I have a quick card for you tonight that I made a few weeks ago using scraps from the Henbury lane collection. I might have mentioned before I love using scraps (especially at the time of them becoming scraps IYKWIM) and did I also say I ♥ the Henbury Lane Collection? Well, of course I did!

I'm really loving the CAS (Clean and Simple style) at the moment, I really can't seem to get enough of it! I still like to add a little ink to the edges of my paper and cardstock however as a half way house between matting and layering and nothing at all!

I've also used some scrummy glitter brads as a central embellishment to the Papermania capsule collection petals. And the embossing leaf punches are so great for adding a little 'something' to a design. This picture really doesn't do the embossed areas of the leaves justice - Here I sanded the embossed areas to release the core'dinations core! The greeting is from one of the Honey and Hugs stamp sets - I think all four are one of the most useful sets around for greetings!

Well , that's all for tonight - tomorrow I'm helping out my friend Michelle at her very first cupcake stall at a local fayre. I've made her business cards, tags and thank you cards to go with her orders/purchases - I'll take some pictures - then you can see her scrummy cakes on the stall.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by - it makes my day!
