Monday and the start of another week


I know I don't usually post on Monday's but yesterday's post was photo heavy and I never even got round to posting my LIM challenge so .... with apologies for being so late to the party .....

My card
And the "diamonds" in close up!
Materials used:
  • 10cm square white, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • 9cm square white card panel
  • Snippets of black and gold holographic card, for matting
  • Rubbadubbadoo heart stamped using Delicata golden glitz ink, cut out and mounted on dimensional foam pads
  • TCW "diamond" stencil used with Faber Castell glass bead glitter gel - so twinkly it even looks like diamonds!
  • Crafters Companion sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink

I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge No. 294 -THEME WEEK .... DIAMONDS
  2. CAS-ual Fridays - challenge No. 156 - Dimension and bling

And now, back to the scrap booking layouts .. I'm surprised to have finished four layouts AND to be reasonably happy with them! Of course, if I practised more .....

A birthday trip from 1996 and a craft retreat from earlier this year!
Two pages to celebrate our recent anniversary
I managed four layouts this year, one more than last year .. I ran out of pix last year!
And the group photo from my scrap booking retreat ..

Here we all are! Me? I'm wearing my Happy Little Stampers (black) Apron

Have a great week everyone
