A card...

.... again!!!! LOL

Hello, I hope you are well, I have just finished preparing for a class so I am winding down with a blog post before I hit the pillow. It recently occurred to me that I am more of a stash collector then I am a stash user. I am sure you know exactly what I mean, you sit down and look through your stamps to find out which one asks you to be used this time, then as you have a good rummage you come across sets that have been living with you for a while but you never ever used. So you think to yourself, aww you poor little neglected thing of beauty, I will break your packaging open and I will let you dance over my ink pad and then I will make you kiss my whisper white card stock and then I will turn you into a pretty!!!!! .
Ok , ok I know I now sound like I have positively lost the plot lol. But .........Today I found my never used level two hostess set * Cause for celebrations* and this is what I did.

I found a cool colour combo on SCS, and this time is Rose Red card stock, Kraft and Basic Black. (The kraft patterned paper comes as a hostess pack for reaching level 1 qualifying sales.)

Simple enough card so I won't bore you with details what s a bit different is the way I have used my crop o dile to punch through in places, revealing the underneath colour, effective and yet so very quick to do. There is also a jumbo eyelet set in the middle of the solid bloom with a crystal brad set into it and NO RIBBON!! not even an inch now that is WOW!!. Is also very different for me and I have surprised myself with it, to top it all I have sort of cased myself if that makes sense, I took inspiration from the card I did for Gogo in December, scroll down a bit to see what I mean. Anyway I m off to bed now have a lovely weekend. Hugs M xxx
