Dry spell

Dry spell? Not outside the window I know, but here on my blog it's been very dry. In fact I struggled to remember where to find the 'New Post' button! Time has been the problem. Now I have the time as I've broken up for the summer. But the juices aren't flowing again yet. This card took some time in the making and is modest but hopefully the start of a more productive era. I've used some glittered marble card, panels embossed in my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder, some flowers and ribbon from my stash and flourishes courtesy of my crafty friend, Lesley. The image has been glazed with clear embossing powder and I was pleased to see that my white souffle and clear stardust pens both show through the glaze, although that might not be obvious from the photo. The card is to congratulate my cousin Matthew and his wife Naomi on the birth of their son, Max.

Yay, Beautiful! Glad to see the flourishes came in handy.

You put me to shame how many times you've used your Swiss Dots folder and I keep forgetting all about mine.
It does work so well on your baby card though and everything looks so fresh and clean, just as a baby card should.

Lovely card Jo! Hope it's the start of a busy crafty time.
thanks for the kind comment on my blog about my journal - do use the ironworks mask, you won't be disappointed! And remember to to have another piece of card ready to flip it on to and take an imprint - two images for one and less wasted ink!
