Frazzled Friday

Almost the weekend - hurrah! Well, sort of, the past three days off work have whizzed past and I am sure the next two will as well and then, hey presto, it's Monday again. Phfft. Anyhoo, not feeling very energetic today after a trip to the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery with the art class yesterday so only had a little play.

Now I'm always behind with things so it comes as no great surprise for you to learn that I have only just attempted my first Nestabilities round card ....

My huge thanks to Helen for the instructions - it's easy once you know how. Stamp is Penny Black "Country Lady", the papers are odd ones from the stash, as are the gems and the pink ribbon bow.

My next effort uses the Penny Black "Sentiments" stamp, which I think is fabulous for male or female cards. Papers are a mixture from Basic Grey collections, the ribbon is Papermania and the pink flower is WHSmith. Unsure about the origins of the yellow flower centre but it could be Pebbles Inc.

So that's me done. Mojo is exhausted and so I am. Going to a luxurious curl up on the sofa with my book ("This Thing Of Darkness" by Harry Thompson) and a cuddle with Vincent (the cat!).

What a sweet round card. I've seen round cards that don't have the one side flattened off where the fold is. I pondered that and pondered that. Was it magic? No! They cut out an additional round scallop piece to mount over the top. Very tricky. I've never seen the postman kitty stamp before... Hmmm... Well, whaddya know?!
