There is no-one like you!


I hope you are all having a good weekend. I have squabbling children in the background so I needed to get out the room for 10 mins!! They have had a fun morning at a climbing wall for my son's birthday, then out to Burger King for lunch with a few friends. Are they grateful and thankful??? Oh no....just grumpy!!

Anyway onto the card. I stamped a Sarah Kay image and coloured with distress inks after i had blown the dust off them! I feel quite out of practice. The paper is from 7 gyspsies and I did a lot of distressing and stiching on this card. My favourite techniques right now!!

The flowers are punched with a large and small retro flower punch with the DP. The roses in the middle were 75p for 12 in my local craft shop!! The hessian ribbon is from a Raspberry Ribbons kits and finally, the tag is a chipboard tag with a Hero Arts sentiment.


And because I had love the way cards look so complete with matching insides..I decided to make a 'bonny' matching insert!

As, Cute Card Thursday has the theme of using something you got for Christmas, this card qualifies as I used my mini sewing machine lots on this card :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend my lovelies,

Now there was no need to take it out on the card just because the kids are playing up ! (good distressing ! hehehe) I know exactly what you mean about the children !

This is gorgeous, the paper actually looks like material - great job.
