Artistic Etchings

Morning, how is everyone? Hope you are all well. I have had a busy few days, starting with some really good news on Thursday afternoon.

Christopher went for his post-op follow up with the Orthopaedic surgeon and we were a little worried to start with as he had to have 5 sets of Xrays. As it turned out Student Radiographers were taking the images, so it was just a case of getting positioning right as when we saw the Consultant he got the all clear. After 3 years he has now been discharged. Such a relief. He may be 17 but he still is my boy (all 6' 2" of him).

Yesterday should have been theme park day, but we have delayed this as we did Alton Towers at Halloween last year and couldn't get near the rides. So decided to have a shopping day - actually it turned out to be nearly 3 hours stuck on the A1. When we finally got home, it was time to get ready for a Charity "Monster Ball" which was raising funds for one of the wards at the Hospital were I work. I personally don't do fancy dress, but there were some fab costumes and wigs about.

I have also been really busy prepping for next Saturday's class - which I'm really looking forward to it. It's the reason I joined up with SU, to get together with like minded crafters, share ideas and generally just have fun being creative.

I ought to post a picture of a card, after probably boring you silly by now with my ramblings!

It is a little card based on a layout in the Idea Book - I love the fact that if you ever get stuck for a layout just open the catalogue and hey presto loads of ideas :-)

Card Stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Stamp Set: Artistic Etchings
Paper: Love Letter
Punch: Word Window, 1 3/8" Circle

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for your comments, it means a lot that you take time to have a read of my blog.

Have a fab weekend.

  1. I like this abstract way of using this set - especially the clever border at the bottom of the card.
