Hooray! Something craft-related!! :o)

Went to a Stampin' Up! workshop last Monday evening at my friend, Debbie's. It was her first workshop after being made redundant. I think it's a brave move and although I don't know Debbie yet as well as I'd like to, I have the impression that it is typical of this lady not to take things lying down. She has my utmost respect, and I wish her well with her new venture.

So.. I made her a card. As you would.

It uses BG Euphoria DP, Cuttlebugged and sanded, with stripy BG Euphoria paper on the panel, stamped with a nice Inkadinkado flourish in Dark Brown Chalk Eyes. Used a Fiskars Threading Water border punch for the scalloped holy bit, some cream crocheted lace, chipboard letters and computer-generated letters and sentiment, with a metal embellishment 'Go for it!'.. Prima flower, hand-drawn arrow, BG button, cotton twine + rosebuds & gems.


  1. Awww Chris. Thank you. I absolutely loved the card, just my thing, pink and glitzy, you can't go wrong there. In fact I love it so much it's still standing on my fireplace.

    And I hope we get to know each other really well. I feel a real bond with you.

    See you very soon.

    Hugs Debbie xx
