Phone Home


Well its a bank holiday here in the UK, also the reason for my post to be a bit late this morning, no setting the alarm clock on a long weekend.
I've used the Freshly Made Sketch from a few weeks ago but also I saw a card on Pinterest who had cut chervons in the main mat like this although I think theirs were a bit more discreet.
The card is still growing on me but I think it would work for a chaps card and especially as embellishments are harder for those sort of cards too.
The little chap is a digi from Funky Kits, I think most of love the artist already.
I've been having a go at the Project Life type of scrapbooking, I thought I would make my own cards with a combination, stamping, die cutting and using the scrapbooking patterned papers. Whilst I'm pleased how some of it turned out to be honest it took so long, that towards the end of the fourth page I rushed a bit. I've learned  a few things like used ready made cards that will speed things up and maybe add a few diecuts, I still don't like flat embellishments and yes it does use a few more photos. Will I do it again properly but only when I need to not because I love it!
