Friday post and the start of another weekend ..

Morning all,

Hope you've had a good week, we've had all sorts of weather and commitments so I would say that my week has been "interesting" but I've booked a few days away visiting a crafting pal who's a bit poorly, so I'm looking forward to seeing her. Hubby will be staying home and taking the opportunity to catch up on a few things without me as a distraction!

I managed to hit the ToC (that's Table of Craftiness) earlier this week and I've a jolly little card to share with you ....

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White 12.7cm square, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of card cut to 12cm square (one white and one DCWV textured deep red)
  • One piece of ochre DCWV textured card cut to 11.5cm square
  • One piece of white card cut to 11cm square

This is a really pretty card Kathy and I love the red and orange combination, and that stylised flower looks great over that striped paper and the MS punched border goes beautifully. x
