Red, white and black card!


Well I got my dies sorted out onto my magnetic sheets and sorted my stamps out onto some laminate sheets. Had a little disaster at first as I fed the sheet in the wrong way and it got trapped - whoops.  Instead of shouting my hubby for help I got the screw driver out and freed  my sheet - phew!  I was laminating a Sheena Douglas sheet for my poppy stamp so now it's a concertina....... never mind!  Productive day yesterday at least I did what I set out to do for once.  Anyway the old leggies are playing up today so a slow day.  Did the ironing and a little crafting so all is not lost.  Here's a card I made a week ago to offer my sympathy:
I used: backing paper from Kanban cdrom, Sheena Douglas Poppy stamp coloured with promarkers, sentiment from the same stamp set, black card and black gems.

Die cut dreams challenge 106 - sympathy
Going buggy challenge -Grey, white & red (or Black, white & red)
Lets ink it up challenge 19 - Anything goes
Rubys rainbow challenge 20 - valentines or red & black
Stamp and create january monthly challenge - anything goes

That's all for now. Have a nice night.

Love Debs x
