Embossed card… plus some news

Hi all, hope you are well…
Life is busy here (but good!)

First things first – a card for today… I was inspired by the CAS-ual Friday challenge:

cfc111.. as you can see ;)
card inspiration challenge CAS CFC111 button embossingThat button embossing folder is so fun and it was perfect for this challenge. I love it. A little inking with Distress Inks over the top brings out the texture!

Meanwhile, in other news…

  • My colour-themed Christmas card won a shout-out in the Festive Friday challenge – YAY! What an honour from the girls there, thanks!
  • I had Friday off work (how nice to have a long weekend!) and went for a day out with my godson, his sisters and my BFF (their mum!) to at-Bristol – a fabulous local science and activity centre
  • This weekend has also seen the annual Bristol Balloon Fiesta – 100s of hot air balloons zooming over our house all weekend long. Will share some pics from that when I pull them off my camera later!
  • Took delivery of some photos I had printed this week so have started scrapping my album from last year’s summer holiday in Italy. Fun.
  • Also a recent crafty haul is coming into its own – not just for that scrapbook, but for a few cards too. Some lovely new stamps by Waltzing Mouse, amongst other goodies.

All good stuff.
Hope you’re having a great weekend where you are and whatever you’re up to. Take care, crafty pals, Rx

    The button embossing is so cute! Thanks for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
