I'm back................................

where did that go!!!

Well we had an amazing time and met some fab people but back to normality now (not that my life is normal) but normality for me.

I thought I needed to post a card asap as I am worried my blog might close itself down and I really don't think I would be able to set it up again because I think it only worked first time on a 'wing and a prayer' - hopefully not the only one out that thinks that their blog is cleverer than them!

I'm not a technophobe but I know what I need to know for what I do (no more - no less) so when I post even now I keep my fingers and toes crossed........

Anyway enough of my waffling's..........

here is my latest contribution

and a close up.....................

I don't think it really shows up on the photo but I have layered a silver frame and slightly offset it on a black frame.

Crafters Companion Elegance Emboss Folder
Sizzix Fancy Rectangle Frame
Sizzix Oval Framlets
Whimsey Sentiment Stamp
Flourish stamp was from a set of 99p stamps that have a few mini stamps on a clear sheet (I say was because unfortunately after a few uses it has now split)
Ribbon & bling from my stash.

I hope you like............

as this is my female card for this year - I now try and make one card for the year for female and one for male recipients and just vary them slightly. 

I have decided to do this as I really struggle with ideas and so once made I can just refer back to the original photo and just slightly alter - I'm actually making a 50th card as I blog and it is using the same basic idea but it is A5 size and I have inserted the rectangle back into the frame which gives it a slightly different look and only used black and white (no silver)..........................oh and I will have to find another ickle flourish stamp in my stash. 

Saves me getting 'brain ache'
