Anyhow, enough whining, it's marginally better now - all the more for me being wrapped up like it's the middle of Winter, am sure it was just the cold and rain.
Back to the card though, I went and had a good old nosey round LIM and spotted that the girls had mentioned it being a good way to use up designer paper - 'DING', on went a light bulb here. Of course, whatever made me go for plain papers - probably the distinctive pattern on the stamp which I didn't want to be swamped :( What a stoopid, stoopid girl!
Anyhow, I'm entering it just to give Chrissie and Mandi a laugh at my lack of thought processes - and am working on another entry already.
- 6" x 6" square white card stock
- Stampendous 'Heart Stack' stamp
- pink and raspberry papers from the snippets folder
- sentiment stamped in SU 'Melon Mambo' using a Stampendous ' Best Wishes' stamp which goes back to 1994, crumbs!
Being a glutton for punishment, plus it's no good hanging round here feeling sorry for myself, I'm off out again today with my crafty pal - first stop is The Range in Reading - dosed up with Nurofen I expect. She needs some silicone glue - and of course that is absolutely all we'll be buying, phew a little pig just flew past the window here :) It could be cheaper just to give her one of my spare tubes of the stuff!
Have a nice day - and do keep warm and dry!
Now don't you go buying anything I wouldn't!!!! Hugs Mrs A.ReplyDelete
Stitching and stuffing a fabric butterfly at the moment which is not going at all to plan. Will be up for hours yet. Normal bedtime is 4.30am ish!!! hugs Night Owl.ReplyDelete
and beofre you ask no its not pink but yellow!!!!
I think this is a great card! I love the clean and simple design. I think just because you did loose sleep over this card, you should make the showcase.ReplyDelete
Have fun at the range, I am holding fire on purchases until the new happy days docrafts collection appears at the end of the month, oh look another pig lol. I loved the card, it is raspberry border card or a promarker line. Hugs, Amanda xReplyDelete
Great paper pieced card Di and think it'll encourage me to have a go. Better get on You-Tube to find out how!ReplyDelete
Hope you aren't in too much pain? It sounds like it could impinge on your shopping ability :(
Have a nice day xx
Have a great time buying....ooops I mean window shopping :-) Hope your back settles down soon. I too am aching in places I'd forgot I had from a busy weekend [done too much?....how do you know til it's too late?]. I wouldn't have changed my weekend for the world [apart from walking miles on Saturday to find a shop that had shut!].ReplyDelete
Morning Di . . . sorry to hear you're in pain again. Hope the painkillers help keep you going.ReplyDelete
Personally, I really LOVE this CAS card. I think it's perfect.
Good Luck getting your back sorted.ReplyDelete
Your LIM card is fabulous btw
Hope your back is behaving itself today. Have fun window-shopping! :) Absolutely love the card!ReplyDelete
A beautiful clean and simple card Di, just perfect. Hope you are feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
Card making is SUPPOSED to be relaxing you know ;-0 lol!ReplyDelete
Hope you're feeling better now - I like the card both with and without the border btw.
Your card looks fantastic love the hearts and the raspberry around the edge~FAB! Feel Better Soon :)ReplyDelete
I like your card, but I do giggle at your paper piecing with solid colors. I do that sometimes and then stop and thing... um, why did I do that? Especially when you piece it on white! Sorry to hear about your back. I'm still terrified about my back acting up after having spasms over a week ago. That was the suckingest thing ever! Ever! Retail therapy, it could make you feel better. I'll bet.ReplyDelete
I stamped over my designer papers as well, so that makes two of us. I think your hearts are great, love the colours.ReplyDelete
Another great card Di great challenge too at lim:)xReplyDelete
I really like both versions, with or without the frameReplyDelete
hope your back has eased, I suffered a couple of weeks ago, it passed thankfully
Thanks so much

I love your sweet CAS card, Di! I hope your back is out of the vise! If not, I hope you don't run out of that wonderful drug that lets you actually SEE those flying pigs!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for another unbelievably awesome and amusing roll call!!
Di this is lovely, don't be too hard on yourself! Hope you back is a bit better by now.ReplyDelete
