Good morning crafty friends

I do hope the weekend has been uneventful, weather wise, where you live?  It beggars belief for those people who have had their homes flooded for the third time!  My heart goes out to them and everyone else who has been effected by this weather

Now for today's card

If you haven't already heard of, or visited this site, take a look at 'Instant Card Making Downloads'.  I've used this company before and highly recommend it and they are very reasonably priced

I used a die to cut the top of the paper and cardstock, the little extra I adhered to the card bottom. I already had the stamped sentiment on white cardstock so I added a little distress oxide ink around the edge

You've heard me say previously how much I love using Tim Holtz's 'small talk' expressions, I've used two on this card.  If you have a good/wicked sense of humour, and importantly, the recipient, it's worth buying this book.  I always have a titter when I look through it

This card is destined for either of my brothers and there are also several male friends of ours that this card would suit

I used two of the smaller dies from the set for the inside of the card, and the second sticker found its way in there too.  I will stamped a verse when I know who I'm sending it to and the occasion 

  • paper - Instant Card Making Downloads/000519-5c3e7c,zip
  • pearlised brown cardstock - my stash
  • fancy shaped die set - Spellbinders (it's an old one, 6 dies in the set)
  • e/f 'Linen' - Sue Wilson
  • sentiment - Crafter's Companion
  • Distress Oxide 'Walnut' - Tim Holtz/Ranger
  • small talk - Tim Holtz idea-ology #TH93704

Thank you for popping by
