Hello Cupcake!

Hi everyone :-)

I am pleased to say the sun has come out to play again :-)  It always amazes me how a little bit of sunshine can brighten your mood.

Now onto my card.  For a change I decided to ink the edges of my papers and now I really wish I hadn't because to me it just looks messy.  Don't get me wrong I love to see inked edges on other people's cards and that's why I decided to try it but don't think I will be doing it again any time soon.  I might make another card exactly the same but without inking the edges to see which one I prefer ... think I know which one it will be :-)

Papers ~ Dovecraft 'Tea House'
Flowers ~ Dovecraft 'Tea House'
Pearls ~ Prima
Pearl Brads ~ The Hobby House
Sentiment ~ Cuddly Buddly

Simon Says Stamp ~ Anything goes & blog hop
Craft Your Passion ~ Show us your layers
The Crazy Challenge ~ 3 different papers

I am back to work tomorrow but can't really complain because it's only for one day.  I only work Thurs & Fri so I have had a one day week for the last 2 weeks ... I could get used to this :-)

That's all from me ... now off to hang the washing out.

I don't think your edges look messy at all Lisa, in fact your whole card is lovely.

I think inked edges are something we grown into, trouble is once you avae grown into them it difficult not doing it as a normality as I often find out.
