 Good afternoon blogland,

This is the start of a flurry of posts from me over the next few days - and I'm posting at this time today as it's a busy evening for me.  

TTT's going to be home from school shortly wanting her dinner, then I'm off out jogging, when I get back it's straight into dinner for me and hubby and I, finally, get to sit down around 8ish! Tues and Thurs are jogging nights and busy!!  Rest of the time I'm twiddling my thumbs, no, really am - don't laugh! Well that's what TTT thinks anyway! :-)

I won't waffle on too much as I won't have much to say in other posts.  So, moving swiftly on, here's todays' offering:

Supplies used:

Some Odd Girl - Lazy Day Kaylee
coloured with Copics
Taylored Expressions - Simple Strips Background

taylored expressions - Simple Strips : Well rounded
Whimsy Stamps - Connected Rectangle
Creative Expressions - Noble Collection : Double Stitched Squares

Anything else?
Un-branded embossing folder
BoBunny - C'est La Vie Collection (patterned paper)
Distress Ink and blending tool
MDF flower.

What I did:
Re-sized and printed the digi stamp, coloured it in with my Copics and fussy cut out.
Die-cut a square of linen card, embossed with the folder and inked it with the Distress Ink. 
Die-cut the rectangle with more of the same linen card.
Attached a piece of patterned paper to the card base, glued the panel to the paper and the rectangle shape to the embossed panel.
Put 3d foam on the image and sentiment, then popped them onto the card. Finally glued on the MDF flower.

et voila, job done!

Still practicing staging my photos and using the light box - a learning curve I can tell you!

Hope all is well in your worlds and be back soon,
Signing off,
