I can't believe its been that long since I posted, shame on me for being a bad blogger. To be honest I don't know why I haven't posted either. I've been busy moving offices at work and had quite a lot going on but nothing dramatic so I can't even use that as an excuse. Anyway I'm here now and with a card so that kind of makes up for things. I hope your weekend has been very productive. Mine has. I've made this card for my mam's birthday and made the box for it to go in as it wouldn't fit into an envelope with the flowers on and I must admit I think I may make a few more boxed cards . The gold and red flocked paper was salvaged from christmas crackers, As soon as they had been pulled I was pinching the bits of paper, saying that my eagle eyed sister in law was hot on my trail and I think we both came out even lol. The vase is a Clarity stamp and has been raised onto foam pads to make it stand up so the roses could be slotted underneath. Not sure about the photo though I think its a little bit too light. Anyway off for a look aroung blog land now before the footie starts then I'll head to the kitchen with a glass of red wine and my craft stuff and see what I come up with. Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
