A day off

It feels a bit weird to be sat at home chilling on a Saturday when I've done quite a few demo's on the trot.
Still I have a cup of tea and the Wales rugby match on with my boys,
then we have a day to Inverness planned swimming and the cinema.
Before I go I thought I'd post another sample;

For this card I have used;
Spellbinder shapeabilities Lace Doily Motifs, Ironwork Motifs, Layered Poinsettia and Foliage together with Classic circles and classic Scalloped circles.
The paper I have used is MME Loss and Found Union Square.
Distress ink Vintage photo and Fired Brick.
Joy stamp from Andy Skinners set Simply Angelic.
Gold beads from stash.

This is a 5 x 10" easel card folded at 5" and 7.5" with a 5" square added to the front.
Easel cards have become so popular over the last six months with all manner of shapes, sizes and angles being tried. 
I do like the simplicity of this simple square one.

I did have a play with my felt yesterday and started to get a wee bit excited as what I was making started to come together....
until I realised I had no black felt.  :(
Well, that probably isn't totally true, I just can't find any.
So whilst out today I will be trying escape to a craft shop and acquire a wee bit.
That's my excuse!
I have so many projects I start but then don't get chance to finish.
I am determined this won't be one of them.
Have a great weekend.
And finally COME ON WALES!
(Got to support the only home team left in the Rugby!)
