My girlfriends and I usually get together every Friday to scrap, whether it's cards or page layouts, but this Friday we all had lots on and didn't get together. This nearly never happens. I think we have only cancelled 4 Fridays this year!
So instead we got together last night and invited another friend, Amy, who has only just started getting into card making after attending a Stampin' Up party. She's being converted!!
I think we finally called it a night just after midnight!!! I really couldn't believe the time. We were all enjoying it so much that none of us wanted to pack up, but considering Amy had a long drive home and Tracey and I have tiny babies to look after we thought it was time to call it a night.
Anyway, I've made so many Christmas cards lately, that I fancied making something different.
I had seen this gorgeous card design on Patty (or LaLatty as she's known on Splitcoasters) blog and knew I had to give it a try. I've changed it up, but only a little. I gave my Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery a Scallop border and also ran the whole card through the Bigshot (I'm so addicted to bobbling everything) but other then that it's pretty close to the original.
I borrowed the stamp set, Flower Fest, from a friend and after using it last night I can tell you it's most definitely going on my "Most Wanted" list. Every stamp I did came out perfectly, no missing bits, no double images. Just perfect and crisp. I'm totally in love!!!
