Is it really Thursday already?

Hey there! I can’t believe how the time keeps getting away from me and before I know it another week is almost over! Yesterday I had to go to the doctor for some prescriptions and then down town to collect them. The chemist was busy and I had to go back in 20 mins…which gave me ample time to go shopping and spend a ton of money! Seriously, how does that happen????

Anyway, you’re not here to listen to me whine about boring everyday stuff…you’re here for the cards, right? Today’s card is one that I made last week but haven’t got around to showing you yet…I do have to admit that I had to go to my own blog and check if I’d shown this one yet! I must be getting old or something :) I made this one the same time as the one I cased from Mad using the Bella DSP and Friends 24/7. While I had the stamps out I thought I’d make one with my own DP made from the Damask stamp in the set:


The BG was a little time consuming as I had to use the stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure that it was all lined up properly, but I think the effort was worth it to get perfectly matching DP for any card. I’ve used Vanilla CS for the DP as well as the image and sentiment panels, with Riding Hood Red and Choc Chip layers. The ribbon is the wide Choc Satin (sooo yummy!) and the Old Olive brads pick up the colour of the branch leaves. I really liked how this one turned out…classic and elegant I think…maybe I was channeling Miss June :)

Anyway I better run…the carpet man has miraculously decided the come put in the carpet this afternoon and I will be busy putting things away in the craft room later :) I promise some before and after photos very soon. Oh yeah, and some Jethro pics. I haven’t downloaded them from the camera yet…oops! Tomorrow???

Hope your Thursday is fantastic…and a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Madonna (and her twin brother Shaun). Click on her name to go over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday ;)

Just love how you have done the background Kristie. It looks brilliant. I may have to case it to use with my Finest Flourishes set.

You had me at "damask"...this is a stunning card, Miss Kristie! You think you may have been channeling ME? I don't know about that, but I want to catch some of that the elegance. Definitely worth your stampamajig efforts!

Did you damask an entire sheet of 8.5" x 11" cardstock and quarter it to make 4 cards(or whatever measurements SU! makes for the Australia)?
