Make it Friday

Not sure if I'm happy with this card it feels like there should be more of something, the sketch is CPS103 and I've used some of the scraps left from Daisy Bucket forgot that there were brown spots on the back of the stripe paper. The swirly frame is cut with the cricut using the Graphically speaking cartridge. The daisy is a punch and I know, you know that the leaves are a punch too.
I'm very sorry to the blogger who showed the swiss dots embossing and using another folder afterwards but I thought it was a brilliant idea and I've used on Laura's sketch for 2sketches4you. The dots do flatten but you can re-emboss using an embossing tool. The little bird is inkadinkado and ribbon out of my stash.
Off to the Make it Show today although there doesn't seem to be so many on the list exhibitors so we will wait and see. As my Sis is in Spain and I don't like DD car (it bounces around a bit too much for my liking) Hubby is coming to help push me around so that means I must be on best behaviour and leave the credit card at home. But don't worry Sis is back today and we plan another trip on Sunday the credit card will be coming with me then but don't tell Hubby!

  37. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
