ahh - when you read this...

hi all

...sorry I have been absent this week - but its been a hive of activity here in my crafting corner, over the last few days - as Miss ''  finally tumbled to her senses and gave some thought to making a card and a number of swaps for a 'Stampin' Up! event I am attending, along with a lot of other Stampin' Up! demonstrators, this weekend.

Here's a quick view of my rather in-elegant!  box of swaps ready to go..

...I will explain the doings of them in a bit more detail in my usual Sunday snippets..!

and Stampin' Up!  have also asked for card donations for their Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Drop box - we have all been asked to make a card.

For my card, I chose Pistachio Pudding (one of the current 'In-Colours' for 2013 - 2015) and Very Vanilla for my basic colour scheme  - actually unwrapping the 'in-colour' stamp pad for the very first time.. Not too sure why I waited so long to use it, if am honest..?

Having opened it and seen it in for real as it were,  I find I just love the subtle hue and soft look to it!

my card is a 'just because' card .. and that's just because I had the stamp still to hand from its last outing, a couple of weeks ago.!

But this was what I finally settled for: and am quite pleased how it all came together in the end and as the 2nd love in my life in the crafting stakes is sewing, I thought I would add a touch of faux stitching to finish it all off.!

...and inside - I just did a bit of 'stampin' off the paper - as I like the effect that gives, 

I hope they like it.

Well I have heard the weather is supposed to hold for the weekend, so am crossing fingers and anything else I can think of, that it does as promised.. and  shall be looking forward to a bit of a relax on Sunday after my away day!

so  shall close by wishing you all a lovely weekend as well and will be back in a few days time with a round up of tomorrow's fun and festivities.

til  next time

    1. Dear Vicky
      thanks so much as always for taking the time to post such a lovely comment for me. I did get quite a few comments re: all the little cutting outs! I quite enjoyed doing them all once we got into 'production mode'
