Textured presents...

Good Morning!

I hope you are all well and enjoying the inclement weather we seem to be having! Yesterday was one of those days {here, anyway} where it just couldn't seem to make it's mind up as to what it was going to minute glorious sunshine, the next torrential rain. Ah well, it keeps my washing on its toes!

I hope you'll be pleased to hear that I've been busy in the evenings coming up with some more FREE digi images for your delectation, the next one to be released on Monday 12th June. Don't forget I still have the challenge running to use the last free digital image on a project, and this finishes on Monday 12th June. See *here* for more details.

Today I thought I'd share a card I made Ooo, almost a year ago now for the Letterpress Hour on Ideal World/Create and Craft. I still love this piece of kit and get it out whenever I can. I'll have to show you my business cards I made with help of this little beauty.

The papers are from Papermania Henbury Lane, and I hand drawn a little border around the edge too. 

I've inked up the plates as usual using pink letterpress ink, but then instead of using letterpress paper {or card as I would call it} I have used core'dinations cardstock to get that linen effect. You don't really get the debossed effect that you'd usually get when using the correct cardstock however. I love it!

Anyhoo, be back soon with some cards I've made over the past couple of days!
