Late again!!

I am really struggling to get my act together with this blogging... I wanted to enter this weeks challenge over at Phindy's. It was to have embossing somewhere on your card. I found this week's card patterns layout and proceeded to make my card, only to find the challenge finished yesterday... Doh!! LOL
Anyway, I love the finished result and have decided to enter it into a couple of other challenges..
!) Card patterns- Sketch 72
2)Stamp something- Go digital
3)Stampavie- Anything goes
4) 2 Sisters- Anything goes
5) Papertake weekly- In the garden

A brief list of items used:-
6" x 6" White card
BP's My Mind's Eye- Quite contrary (These were a free gift with 'Cardmaking & Papercraft' magazine)
Image: Petticoat Patty by the talented Phindy
Image cut and embossed using Labels1 nestability and coloured using Promarkers
White card embossed using Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder
'Squares' cut using a Creative Memories punch which my good friend Alice brought me from USA. (Hope you like seeing what I make with it, Alice!!)

Tomorrow is going to be a long day here, as my hubby is away from very early in the morning, to a craft fair at Dunluce castle, Portrush. It is one of his favourite craft fairs of the year, I only pray that the weather will be favourable as it's been very windy with heavy rain all this past week. They depend a lot on passing tourists, it really is so scenic and beautiful on a good day! Hopefully I will get a couple of card orders finished- it will help to keep me busy.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend- however you are planning to spend it.

  1. Beautiful card Trish. Such a sweet image. I do love those MME papers, I bought the 12 inch set but still had to get the magazine so I could also have the 6 inch papers.
    That new punch looks beautiful!
    Fingers crossed that the weather stays fine for Martin, it's been raining here for most of this week.
    Have fun making cards whilst Martins away.
    Hope you are keeping well.
    Take care
    love Elaine xx
