A crafting day for me today - yippee!

Hello folks

I'm a happy happy bunny today as I get to spend some quality time in my den getting creative. My husband is going to spend some time with Alex to give me a break so I can't wait to get started.

I did manage a bit of creativity yesterday which I thoroughly enjoyed, and although many of my designs are quite simple, I think they're really effective. Having lots of elements on a card can be lovely but they can also start to look cluttered, so sometimes less is more. That's my philosophy anyway.

So below is a picture of a card I whipped up yesterday afternoon. I used a cream scalloped edge square card, to which I added a central embossed flourish using sepia ink and clear embossing powder on an orange paper which was mounted onto a brown swirly textured paper, finished with the little greeting at the bottom and inked around the edges. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out but as usual the photo doesn't do the card justice so you'll have to take my word for it when I say it is a lovely little card. I can't show you the one I'd made in the morning yet because I need to be sure the recipient has opened it first!

I'll be back soon.

Meanwhile, keep warm and be happy.
Love from me xx
