The card itself was easy and simple, but it took ages to get to it!! I ended up with all my stamp sets out on the table (and the floor and the couch! - and seriously, I don't have THAT many!) with a sheet each of the colours. Then the stamp sets I liked I couldn't reconcile with the colours - so in disgust, I flicked through my catalogues! yippee!! This is a case of the card on page 16 of the summer mini, but I turned it round and made it into a notelet (that to me is a quarter A4 folded in half). The "ribbon" is basic grey, and the say it with scallops is stamped with real red, as we don't have riding hood red (yet!! I hope it's coming!!)
So, anyway that's the card - taking the photo added even more drama! So yes, it's wonky, but hey - it's legible!! sun glare, shadows, you name it! I have one pic of it that makes the grey look orange! nasty!! :)

I decided my header was really boring - well non-existent actually, and I wanted something that would reflect the name of my blog a bit :) So I rummaged through the drawers of the one year old living here, and pulled out his teeny tiny denim jeans, and thought AHA!! Then, finally, after lots of giggling, and moving stuff around, my new header was born!
FM helped me, and at one point we were going to use my jeans, with me in them, with stuff stuck in the pockets and through the belt loops. Thank your lucky stars THAT one didn't eventuate ;) We did one photo of it, but my bum with full pockets is NOT a pretty sight! She refuses to delete it though..... keeps muttering something about potential payback in the future ;) lol
Anyway, hope you like my header!

This is a set I never liked . . . . . . . until I used it! I still don't own it, but I do like a lot of the stuff I see done with it. I must get a decent boy set though!
This card is one I did through another demo. Another "Notting Hill inspired card" obviously ;)

I am so not into bling and stuff - well I am on other people's cards, but it tends to look like I dropped the pot on mine! lol. I know this card needs something else, but I just can't bring myself to add anything! it seriously looks like a kindergarten kid made it when I do!!
So this is another real plain card.
The cardstock is real red (honestly!!), and basic black. I wanted to use black embossing powder but I couldn;t find it ( MUST TIDY UP!!!), so I used versamark and black ink with clear embossing powder instead! This is an amazing technique! you can have ANY COLOUR embossing powder you like!! Just make sure you ink the versamark first, or it's really messy!!
So, anyway! I stamped the heart from polka dot punches in black and versamark, then clear embossed it, and cut it out. I did the same with LOVE from the hostess set so many sayings, and punched it with the word window punch. Scallop edge the basic black, and stick it all together!
