This was made following the layout over at Clean and Simple. I used Bazil blue card stock as the base and repeatedly stamped a paisley print image onto white card. I photo matted this onto black paper. Added a sentiment using foam dots to pop it up, I dont know if that shows in the photo. About 15mins and very inky fingers (and desk?!) later and it was done. I do love clean and simple cards!!

This was made for challenge 95 over at clean and simple stamping. I silver glimmer misted some white card stock and stamped the scalloped boarder. I then mounted this on a card made of black card stock. The bird image is a digi I picked up as a freebie somewhere, I just cant remember where at the moment though The sentiment and flower were stamped and the flower accented with a little flower pearl. Flower ribbon at the bottom and presto, done. I am really liking black & white cards at the moment!!
Three 5 minute cards. Made using white card stock and the AC Sentiments clear stamps and black ink. I love how these turned out, they are so simple and crisp yet very striking. In person at least, that may not come across so well in the picture as I had to bunch them all together to fit on this post. I originally set this blog up as a photo blog which allows only one image at the top of the post. This is starting to limit me when wanting to post pictures of my cards. I will have to consider changing the layout or else make a new blog. Im not sure I have the time for 2 blogs though. Hmmm!
So the crazy Irish weather is settling down a bit. The flooding in most places is starting to recede and the clean up operation is now in place. Keep your boats close though, you never know when you will need it!
I hate cleaning windows. Its the most frustrating house hold job I can think of. You spend ages washing them, waiting for them to dry and then polishing the streaks off them. Then you step back and admire your work. Then either (or both) of the following happens; (1) A bird will crap on them or (2) It rains. Being Ireland its almost guaranteed to be the second. Then followed by the first.
The birds in my area seem quite adept at dive bombing windows. You know they don’t sit on the telephone wires on the street to rest. They sit there to scope out who is cleaning their windows. Then they go get the gang and plop, you are back to step one with your windows. Sigh!
