I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

C&S double challenge card

This week on CLEAN AND SIMPLE STAMPING #139 is a fabby sketch. I also found a new C&S challenge called CAS-UAL FRIDAY #1 which has it's first challenge as "Text".

My card is made using scrummy new papers from SU Mini catalogue called "Vintage Springtime" which I bought from the lovely LINDA - SU Demonstrator. They are double sided and it took all my strength to cut into them as I just wanted to continue stroking them LOL.

I made my rosette on MS board scoring a 12" strip at every 1/4" then concertina folding and joining the ends.

This is another A6 card - getting better and more comfortable away from my square cards.

SENTIMENT:
Hero Arts set from SECRET CRAFTER
PAPER:
Vintage Springtime from STAMPIN UP
TOOLS:
Martha Stewart Scoreboard
OTHERS:
Card, ribbon, pearls and button from stash
