Saturday post

Hi there readers,

Hope you are all having a triffik weekend, we are!

As is my usual habit, I like to make a card for some Saturday challenges and today is no different ... other than it's my personal nemesis .... the dreaded ONE LAYER CARD!

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

Materials used:

  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • One piece of white card cut to mat, for the insert
  • Creative Expressions (Urban Beats) star image stamped using Distress Oxide candied apple and the sentiment using Memento luxe nautical blue inks

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge No. 350 - STARS ... and it's One Layer Card week too!
  2. Creative Friday - challenge No. 190 - ONE LAYER CARD
  3. Creative Knockouts - challenge No. 215 - CLEAN AND SIMPLE
  4. Craft Rocket - challenge No. 42 - BIRTHDAY or PINKS .. I went with Birthday!

Thought I would share the photo I took this morning, of this little lizard/gecko .. when I saw him first it looked like he was balanced on the reflection of the security bar on the window .. which you can just see in the pic, if you squint!
