Yay for Saturday 14th

I'm so glad that Friday 13th is over and done with (yay not even another one this year). Had a bit of a nightmare day in work (one of those days were none of the calculations balance and end up going cross-eyed looking for where it went wrong). Then it poured down (looked like I'd had a bucket of water tipped over me) on my way to the car, and then to top the day off the car started making a horrible noise as soon as I started it, it was still driving OK so decided that I'd make my way home, so that was a bit of a stressful journey, no radio so I could listen for any changes in the noise. Checked when I got in and part of the exhaust had come apart and was hanging down under the car, off to the garage only to find it had closed down. £-signs going round in eyes thinking how much it was gonna take to fix... Anyways took it to another garage this morning and yay it only cost £5 for 2 clips, what a relief.

I've also been having a play with the watermark - still not right but it's getting there thanks to a new program that Ian got me, just need to change the colour's a bit I think and set up Photoshop action a bit better.

Anyways onto more important stuff, like today's card...

This is my entry for That's Krafty Thursday #38 on The Spotted Chick's Blog, this is the first challenge Krafty Thursday Challenge that I've entered, the challenge was to make a card using Kraft cardstock, this was a bit spooky cos I'd never used kraft card before and had ordered some a couple of weeks ago that was still waiting to be used so this gave me the push to use it before it ended up at the bottom of the pile of paper again lol.
The crown is meant to be a 'hanging' charm but I took the loop off and covered the hole up with a red gem.

Supplies: 'Jill is Two' Stamp by Mo Manning, Flowers by Petaloo & Tissue Paper by Paperchase Extras: Crown Charm, Kraft, Red and White CS, button, ribbon & red and beige ink pads
I love this card, I used the tissue paper from Paperchase again, stuck onto white card first so the white dots shows up and then stuck onto the kraft cardstock, the only white flower I could find had yellow on the tips of the flowers but a hunt through the craft box and a red ink pad later and I think it looks OK. Right off to try and get another card done too but we'll see lol. XOX

I'm going to have to get myself some Kraft cardstock, your card looks fabulous. About my little blog candy/card drive thingy - teal somewhere in there is just fine, otherwise anything goes :-)
