Mmmm Icecream!


Hi Everyone,

How are you doing? Hope you are having a good week.

Sorry I haven't been around much! Deadlines are closing in so I'm either working or at home doing coursework at the moment. However, this evening I managed to squeeze in some 'me time' and made a card.

I used a stamp set I have been wanting to use for some time now and I am quite pleased with the outcome!

I have always admired the 'distressed' look too, so thought I would try my hand at it with the scissors... what do you think? I could do with having more materials, especially Mr Holtz goodies but that will have to wait until I am qualified!

Ingredients:

- 6x6 craftwork card blank
- polkadoodles image and sentiment stamped onto scraps of white card
- do crafts tea house papers
- card stock from stash
- buttons from hobby craft
- ribbon from stash
- heart stickers from macy's

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking :)

Sweet card Laura. Your scissors did the trick, but I'm betting it's much easier with a distressing tool!

Good luck with your deadlines. xxx

Best of luck with those deadlines - you'll get there, deep breath now and then! Di xx
