Embossing Sizzix style but getting inky too, CAS style of course.

Good afternoon, not as late a post as yesterday.  Another productive day at work, dog walked, now it's time for tea.
Whilst I am in the kitchen I thought I'd share another CAS style of card today, this time using a Sizzix embossing folder.

Once the card was embossed I added distress ink Peacock feathers, lightly over the design.
The sentiment is from Papertrey ink Beautiful butterflies, card stock and bling from my stash.
A none lovey dovey Anniversary card.  I don't do gushy cards unless asked for, I prefer clean and simple ones, funny or a little risky!
I guess that is my sense of humour.

My eldest boy had the first of his National five exams today, he seems not to be phased at all by them.  Which is a good thing.
He has English tomorrow and I think that is the only one he is concerned about.
It's a whole lot different now to sitting the old O level examinations both my husband and I took.
It was our first real exam conditions when we did them, nowadays they practise and practise, which I think is a much better idea.  It takes away the sheer fear factor, I for one can remember being a nervous wreck at school.  I hated them.

Remember my clean and simple card from Monday?
I also made this style in a square card using a sentiment stamp from Stampers Anonymous Way with words.

It was a recent colour combo on the  The Great Scheme of Things blog.  Have you managed to join us yet?

That's all from me today, I better go and see how tea is coming on.  Have a super evening, it's lovely and sunny here, I'm planning on a little crafting later, shhh, don't tell!
