Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies..

Just a quick one here tonight from me - this is one of those non-DT cards that we love so much..  and no colouring too..  that makes such a change!

It's pretty CAS - here's what I used..

Simon Says Stamp - Sending Word Die
Simon Says Stamp - Sending and Wishing Stamp Set
Stampin Up - Edgelits - Adorning Accents
Stampin Up - Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Adorning Accents
MFT Die-Namics - Fresh Cut Flowers Die

It certainly does me lots of good to do a 'different' card every now and again..  hope you like!

My eldest daughter was here tonight - just her and I for dinner as my lovely OH was on lates..  She'd brought her big exercise ball for me to borrow - so picture the scene...  I was fine sitting on the ball and twisting this way and that.... then she told me to lay back OVER the ball to improve my core muscles (the reason she'd brought said ball)..  it was only THEN that we realised I totally LACK the muscles required to sit back up!  So I was prone with head nearly touching floor one end, and feet touching floor the other.... while she fell about giggling alongside me!!  And when I'd eventually been brought upright after much pushing and pulling - and we related the tale to OH later on...  he asked why hadn't Emma taken a photo!!!!  Charming!!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..

    Gorgeous card and isn't it wonderful how sometimes the simplest is the best? This is so classy and pretty... an man, you have some of the best dies! My pocket book thinks it has a mind of it's own sometimes, especially after I've seen some of yours.

  13. Oooh loving this card too Christine! the pink and that fancy edge....all fabulous. He he can just imagine you on that ball now........shame there is no photo! I once got on a blow up bed to test it and as it wasn't blown up properly I couldn't get off it. I had to throw myself off it in the end after much laughing......no pics either as I was by myself ;) Viv xx
