Wow, busy few days, not really got much done, but yay my pre-post worked yesterday. Soooooo glad that this week is over (finally - can't believe how one day of overtime can make the week so long).

I managed to get a this card made this evening :) not bad for a start to finish in less than an hour and a half. I would like to enter this card in the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 118 - Men/Boys Card. Which was something of a challenge lol, find men's (and even boy's) cards such hardwork. But I'm really really pleased how well this has turned out. Right best get on with the post cos think the deadline is coming up pretty soon.

I would also like to enter this card in the Alphabet Challenge - U for Unused Stash - this wasn't so much of a challenge as having to do a male card, was more like the opposite - I had that much unused stash that didn't know where to start. I had these Penny Black stamps for ages and hadn't use them - yep the pack hadn't even been open - oops - poor things cos think they're really cute. The paper was also unused stash, I'd bought the Bloom and Grow MME pack of paper right at the beginning of the year and don't think I'd used a single sheet. But I thought this fitted quite well with the frogs as it reminds me of the weed you get in ponds. Actually thinking about it the buttons have been in the box for years too - didn't realise how much old stash I've actually used on this card - maybe I'm not due a craft shopping trip soon after all.

Close up of the frogs (toads?) think the glossy accents works really well with the frogs, makes them look all shiny like in real life. The photo doesn't really do them justice (even if do say so myself lol)

Supplies: 'Toadily' Stamps by Penny Black, 'Bloom' Paper by My Mind's Eye
Extras: Buttons, Ribbon, White Card, Green Ink Pad, Copics, Glossy Accents

Right well, I'm off to watch some telly, soooo glad it's the weekend, and yay a lie in tomorrow (yep I'm betting I'll be awake before 7 too lol) Ah well atleast I don't have to actually get out of bed. XOX
