Back again


Blimey, can't believe its been so long since I last posted (not that I have many visitors, but for those of you that do visit - sorry for not putting stuff on sooner) time flies when you're having fun & I seem to really be enjoying life at the moment, my new job is fabulous, the people are really friendly and I seem to be settling in really well.

Hope you like this card, it was made for another of my nieces birthdays, and pretty much everything is stampin up, well, the card (bashful blue and perfect plum), and the flower and sentiment stamps, the other bits were from my stash, the card sort of created itself, but was based on a card I saw over at Kristina Werner's blog it was the Make a Card Monday for 9th June.








Next up was the card I made for my dad for fathers day - again using the bashful blue card and Chocolate Chip inkpad (god I love their inkpads - I've even learned how to open & close them without covering myself in ink!). Its a simple and stylish card which I made right at the last minute (11 am sunday morning!). Anyway, I think this is one of my favourites purely because its soo simple. Hope you like.

hiya
thanks for leaving lovely message on my blog
to answer your question about the insides of the phone books
i let the pages black and just made a tab for each page and put letter on that as the person i made it for wanted them like that
i suppose you can print them out i will need to work that out if someone wants one with the lines already on etc so might have a play and i'll let you know how i get on
