Half Full or Half Empty

Morning!

Hope you're all well. 

It's the weekend, and for some in da house (me) it's just another weekend as I don't get the holiday Monday from work. Andy and Scott are off in Edinburgh for the football so it's just me and Craig this morning. What to do.....

Anyway, while we contemplate, here is Opal the Optimist with her half empty glass. Or is it half full?!

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

Morning.

Hope all well with you. I'm overdue a catch up round blogs so I'll be doing that later today.

This is a card I made for a friend's birthday yesterday. I know, made yesterday and blogging today, whatever next!! There are cards I haven't shared yet and the recipient will be celebrating their next birthday before I've managed it!

I've used the Saturated Canary image Neeve from the CD in Complete Cardmaking magazine. She was printed quite large so that I could crop her down and she'd still be quite big. I also wanted to use my new TH stamps so they went really well with this and I used Early Espresso ink to stamp them with, so there's a whole lot of coffee going through this card ;)

Seriously, How Long Does It Take To Write A Blog Post

Evening....  it's ages since I started this blog post but I started to do something else and forgot I hadn't finished.

Tonight I'm sharing a card I was asked to make recently for a little girl celebrating her first birthday. 

I've used this wee cutie from Mo's Digital Pencil which I actually bought for another card, but I'll show you that another day. I also figured that as the wee girl was only 1 she wouldn't mind if the card wasn't you know what....
