Just Because

Hi every peeps.  How you all doing?  Have you had a good week?

I'm doing OK - feeling really down this week, since Andy went back on Monday.  But I did give myself a boot up the back side yesterday morning and managed to get a couple of things made.  One of which I can show you today :-)

My card today features an image from the new Time for Tea digi stamps that you can find at Polka Doodles.

The image is coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers.  My backing papers are from my old stash.

I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo, don't you just love how neatly it is edged.  I certainly couldn't do this by hand.

The blue band, down the middle, has been embossed with my Cuttlebug and the Baby's Breath folder.  I inked all the edges of all the layers. I added some ribbon and a bow to finish off the front.

For the inside I used the same papers as the front, and finished the little centre panel with some hearts.

My apologies for the short post, my heart is else where.  Hope to be back on form soon.  Have a good weekend everyone.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

  8. Hi Karon, it's understandable that you would be down. Cheer up though as time can fly by and your hubby will be home again for another visit. And absence makes the heart grow fonder. Yes? :) I love your card! Such a sweet image and love how you designed it and the background paper. Keep busy, makes lots of cards and time will, hopefully pass faster for you. I know you've said before but how long will your husband be working away from home? Separation like that is very hard. Hugs and hang in there!
