Well, it just keeps raining. We had quite heavy rain again last night and on and off today. We do need the rain, but when you get several days in a row and you can't get the washing dry and get your craft gear to the car without getting drenched, then you get a bit fed up with it all!!!
My son said he saw about 7 accidents today out on the road because people just don't drive smart in the rain. All in a hurry to get from A to B.
I didn't go to craft this morning. I had a couple of things to deliver to Shirley, so Fran and I caught up with them at a little cafe 5 minutes from here. I checked out the newsagent and found a magazine with some freebie stamps and I have used one of them on my card for today.
Here is what I made.
Front of card
SU Early Espresso for cardbase
DP is from Sandylion Sticker Designs ( been in my stash for a very long time! )
Nestabilities Large Labels Die - I used SU Sahara Sand cardstock
and drew around the die onto the Early Espresso to make a matte for the diecut
Stamp - freebie with Creative Stamping magazine.
SU Close to Cocoa ink
Black Bling from stash
I kept this pretty simple as the paper has lots of little sayings on it. I cut out Carpe Diem from another bit of the paper and backed it with some Early Espresso and then popped it over the original one on the background with a couple of foam dots. The motorbike was also mounted with foam dots.
The inside has the same cardstock but for some unknown reason the scanner has made it look different and neither of the above pics is really the right colour.. I did two second generation stamps on the bottom of the cardstock and also sponged the edges of the card.
I think this card could be used for quite a few different occasions, so I've left it without any extra sentiment.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
CCEE Stampers - CCEE1225 ~ Masculine Cards
Do You Stack Up - Challenge #77 ~ Inspired by a Movie ~ I chose "Easy Rider"
Paper Play - Week 25 ~ Use a Die.
Well that's it for me, I'm going off to snuggle up in bed and get some sleep. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy what is left of your day.
