What a funny old day it’s been weather wise today. Awoke this morning to pouring rain, but the good thing was it was 10am and the lovely hubby had let me have a lie in to make up for 6:15am yesterday morning. Later on we went out and we had glorious sunshine, we went to Mothercare as we are on the hunt for a smaller more ‘holiday packing the car friendly’ pushchair for our little boy but by the time we finished it was getting close to tea time (and we still hadn’t bought one) so we decided to have tea out and had a lovely meal in Frankie & Benny’s. When we left the restaurant it was really windy and was so cold walking back to the car. Surely this can’t be summer?
To top off my lovely day I did a spot of crafting when we got home. This week the challenge at LIM Towers is to use Circles on your card and for once the idea that had been brewing in my head all day actually translated onto my card…
As well as the distressed circle flowers I wanted the layout to form a circle but thought that a whole circle would be too much so moved it so it was off the page……hope I’m not talking rubbish lol and that everyone can see what I mean. To get my sentiment to fit the circle I used a little trick that you can do with clear stamps which is to bend them on your acrylic block so they follow a curve rather than a straight line. This card is a bit different for me, but I like it…what do you think?
I have another idea for a card brewing (all this brain power is making me sleepy lol) so I might be back with another try tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by, any comments you leave are appreciated.
I’d also like to enter my card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of Anything goes.
Items: White 5x5 card blank, Forever Friends Patterned paper, Sentiment is from a cheap little set I’ve had years, can’t remember the make but more than likely it’s from Hobbycraft, Papermania Brads, VersaFine Onyx Black, Whispers Brush Markers.
