A super quick card

Hi Guys,

Friends of mine in Tamworth ordered some of my Body Butter for Troy's Mum to take back to the US. I wanted to throw in a card with the parcel but only thought of it at about 2am (night duty body clock). I had not long received the hostess gift 'Because I Care' and was itching to ink it up. I had been seeing some lovely one layer cards and storing up the ideas to use for work cards. This seemed like a good idea for 2 am LOL.

I has seen this card on Splitcoast and didn't even look at it again before i stamped. Next time I will add in the score lines as I really like it (and now own a scor-pal which does great score lines!!!).

Here's my card:

It is a shocking pic as I quickly snapped it so I could post it. 2am pics taken by desk light are not great quality, LOL. I used the gorgeous new colours 'Marina Mist' and 'Pear Pizzazz'. The sentiment stamp is also new & I just love it. It is 'Curly Cute'. The edge is done with the 'Eyelet Border' punch. This card was so quick to put together yet quite pretty I think.

Thanks for all your lovely comments re the loss of my work colleagues, and my sore back. It really helps.

Better run, my friend's hubby is coming to quote fixing up my front yard.

Cheers, Fi xox

Super sweet card. Love the simplicity! The colours on the image are fab too! I don't know how on earth you can stamp at 2am ... but I wish you could share your secret! Think of all the fun we could have if we didn't need to sleep! Hugs xxaxx

Oh wow Fi, I love this card so much. It is so wonderfully elegant, the colours are gorgeous and the beautiful side border is just perfect. What a lovely addition to what I'm sure is a great gift.
Hope your back is on the mend.
Love and Hugs
