On The Avenue...

...oooohhhh yesh indeedily... remember the other day I was waffling on about my favouritest ever papers and I was bemoaning that I couldn't get any more??? Well!!! It just so happens that a lovely friend of mine leaves me comments on that post and tells me that she has found a WHOLE pack of them!!! And... in exchange for a chocolate cake (one of my specials) I can have the papers... RESULT!!! So, I am bouncing about all happy as Larry (whomever Larry may be lol) when I get an email from Wendy who follows my blog... and she has found another whole pack and...enablingly (if that is a word) sent me the link...so... ahem, I pounced!!! And that means that I can be a bit more liberal with my Avenue papers now which leads me nicely onto my Bubbly Funk DT piece for this week... which is this card... following a sketch I made up... All the deets are HERE




And... I used the papers again the other day to make an anniversary card for my lovely Mum and Dad-in-Law... this time I used Word to make a little sentiment for the front of the card... and made it into a tri-fold card... using my other favest stamp which is the Brush Butterfly by Penny Black - I think the stamp and the papers go well together...





and of course, I have to mention my lovely little Stitchels designs... drawn by my own fair hand - I used Dotty Dot in all three sizes and layered them up together popping a little paper rose into the centre.




Anyways... I had better a wiggle on.. tis way past my bedtime and I am still sitting here waffling away... probably my excitement that in THREE WEEKS... yep, that is only 21 days (!!!) I will be at Ranger U... April is going to be a fab crafty month... what with Ally Pally this weekend too!!! Right... bedtime for bozo here... thanks for looking... TTFN
