Hello there,

A really quick post today, we are having major technical trauma's with the computers in our house today ~ too long and dull to go into, but wanted to quickly post something in this moment of actually being able to get on the internet on one of the machines as I haven't been able to post for a few days :-(

Anyway, todays sample is a very easy card. It started with the card blank, which is one that I had in my stash and for the life of me, I can't remember where I got it from. It has the little blue flowers already printed on it. Now I'm not really a fan of pre-printed cardstock for a card blank as they can be so pretty that I don't want to put anything over the top but this design works really well as a background I embossed a rectangle on some 'Marina Mist' cardstock, then stamped on some 'Whisper White card stock. The stamp I used is from the "Engraved Greetings" set. I used 'Marina Mist' and 'Real Red' markers to colour the stamp and then added a blob of 'Crystal Effects' in the center of the image for additional decoration. I used 'Snail' to adhere the stamped image to the 'Marina Mist' then 'Stampin' Dimensional' to adhere that to the card blank.

My brother-in-law got this one, he likes flowers, bright colours and patterns, so hopefully he liked this one. My next post will be what I made for him for my DS to send.

Take care ... xx
