With Love

Afternoon peeps, hope you're having a great weekend, or what's left of it.  It's back to work for me tomorrow and my new working hours - only 15 hours over three days.  Great, more crafting time you may think, which is very true, although less hours means less money to spend on crafting goodies.  A bit of a doubled edged sword, me thinks.

Anyhow, I've not been doing much crafting this week cause hubby has had the week off and we've had to do things 'togeva'.  But today I'm in luck, he's been off to watch the footie giving me a chance to get this card done.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the tag and embossed it with silver embossing powder to give a metal effect.  The flower was also cut out on the Silhouette - it's a print and cut design, a very clever option which enables you to print out your chosen item and then feed it into the Silhouette to cut out. I love it. 

The sentiment is from Anna Griffin.  The stem of the flower is a swirl design from a Do-crafts set of stamps.  The diamond grid effect on the red card was done on my Scor Pal and the edge was punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.  A couple of little embellishments from my stash - a red button and some brads to finish the card.

I thinks that's it for today - looking forward to Sunday dinner (hubby's cooking - always goes down well when someone cooks for you I find) and Downton Abbey on the telly.  Bye for now and have a good week.x
