A Bit Shabby

Firstly I would like to say a big hello and welcome to Julie-Ann, Wendy, Pauline, Abbie, & Barbara who have recently started to follow my blog, your support is very much appreciated. 

I made the following card for my ‘oldest’ friends husband, (I like to call her that because she’s 6months older than me)!  My version of shabby just because I felt like it.
White base card is a square Craftwork 148x148 card
Hero Arts stamps
Tim Holtz  Idea-Ology, distress ink & stains
Bits n pieces from my stash
Thanks for looking, leave me a comment so I know you’ve been.

  4. Hello Chris I'm also Chris..and I live the other side of Maidstone in Tenterden ! Loved your Clarity Challenge entry and congratulations on making the top was also my first challenge I'll have to keep trying !! I was interested to see also you are going on the Clarity too, my first one..I'm only going on the 24th May though, will you be there? Congratulations again..your cards are really lovely, I especially like the ones with the tags xx

  5. Hi Chris, thanks for your very kind words. I haven't made my 'in the garden' entry yet but have plans to do it next week, best get a move on! I'm going to the workshop on 22nd/23rd May, so wont see you but I'll guarantee you will have a wonderful time, everyone is so friendly. I went on my own the 1st 2 years but this year I'm going with a friend and meeting a few people I know there.

    Good luck with your next Clarity entry and enjoy yourself on the 24th.

    1. Thanks Chris...good luck with " In the Garden " and do you mind me asking as an old hand at Clarity we need to take anything with us equipment wise? You have a lovely time too xx

    2. Hi Chris; No you don't need to take anything to the workshop, well maybe your purse as the van is parked outside and I've never met anyone who can resist the odd purchase! They feed and water you all day and everything equipment wise is provided. I'm sure you will have a great time, Let me know how you get on..

      I haven't had time to enter a card this month, busy with other stuff, hopefully I will be able to enter the next challenge, good luck to you if you have entered.
