Simple Things

Hi friends.  Thanks for joining me today. Welcome to the weekend!

Well I have finally managed to actually finish a card at long last. I have started a few projects but somehow lost momentum part way through and abandoned them all. Hopefully now that I have managed to complete a card the "block" will go and I can get back to normal. I was starting to worry a  little because my mind was just coming up blank. I've heard of writers block so I think have just experienced the crafter's equivalent!

The stamp I used today is from "The Blessings Collection" by Our Daily Bread Designs. I used Spellbinders Labels 11,  Memory Box "Elegant Scrollwork" and the backing paper is  "Spring Feast" by First Edition. The gorgeous lace might be recognised by Patricia because it was part of the gorgeous candy I won from her. Thank you!! Everything else was from my stash.

I got a few ODBD stamps as part of my Christmas gifts so they will be popping up over the next few weeks.

I hope you all have a good weekend.

Love and hugs from Christine xx
