Morning folks


Hope you all enjoyed a great weekend, hope the weather wasn't too bad for you though I hear some parts of the U.K. have had some rough weather of late.

Last evening saw us heading out, with our lovely neighbours, to Garibaldi's - a fab Mexican restaurant on the 192 in Kissimmee. As usual, I had one of my faves - a fajita quesadilla - mmmmm. Then it was back to ours for a bit of chat over a beer - a very pleasant evening. Nothing on the TV after our neighbours went home so Steve watched a little sport and I retired to my craft room!

So, just a quick card to share with you and one that just sort of lent itself to a thank you card. I bought the thistle image whilst in San Francisco and had been just itching to use it - isn't it great?

Materials used:
  • 12.5cm 250 gsm white card and matching envelope
  • 12.2cm black card panel
  • 11.8cm white panel coloured using distress inks in wild honey and worn lipstick
  • Inkadinkado thistle image inked in Ranger Archival jet black on to white card which was then matted on to a black panel
  • Cream ribbon coloured using copic markers and allowed to dry before tying in an off centre knot round the black and white panels.

Hope you like it - I'm absolutely sure I have just the right someone to send this to.

Have a great Monday
