Yeah! ....... Everything's Back to Normal

Good evening folks,

Whoo Hoo! ....... my little old blog is no longer 'naked'.  Everything is finally back to how it used to be thanks to the lovely Julie over at Leelou Blogs.  I feel at home again now.

It's been another busy day, even though I was feeling a little delicate this morning.  We had another fun filled 'Walmsley Wednesday' last night which included the odd bottle of red, or two, or three maybe.
For those of you who haven't heard of  'Walmsley Wednesdays', it's the one night in the week where we all let our hair down a little.  Good food, nice wine, and maybe the odd sing-a-long (very odd sometimes ...... depending on how much wine is consumed!)  The music ranges are quite varied, we can sometimes be a little bit Country, sometimes Rock and Roll, we have been known to even go a bit classical too.  However, last night, hubby decided that it might be fun to find out what was number 1 in the charts on the days that we were born.  Apparently, the day I came into the world Elvis topped the charts with Rock-A-Hula Baby ........ Blue Hawaii was always one of my favourite Elvis films, it's right up there with GI Blues. 

Anyway, enough of all that ...... after a lovely morning out, coffee and a good old catch up with a friend it was back into the craft room to tackle the 'To Do' list again.

I've loads of DT stuff to do but before I got started on all that I made a little something for this weeks challenge over at Less is More
The theme is .......

It's the one occasion I don't have that many stamps for really ........

I do like this sentiment stamp from Penny Black though.

A very quick and easy design using the words as my main image.
I cut out an aperture from a square of white cardstock and then just using my scoreboard I embossed the criss cross design  all over.

I made the scalloped frame from some blue cardstock, using Nestabilities dies and attached over the aperture.  The sentiment was then stamped onto a piece of white card and then placed behind the frame using foam pads for dimension.

The panel was then mat onto some more of the blue cardstock, leaving a small border around the edge and then attached  to the front of a 6x6 square cardblank.

To finish off I added a white seam binding bow and a cute little paper flower that I'd inked with a touch of  Broken China Distress ink

I just need someone to have a baby boy now!

Well that's it for me this evening.  It's an early night with my book I think, I've got a busy end to the week ...... there's my Creative Studios Blog post to do in the morning, then it's IndigoBlu for the rest of the day.  I've got new stamps to play with work with, and lots of samples to make.  Hopefully I'll have some sneaky peeks for you next week, it depends how I get on though I suppose.

Thanks for popping by.  Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Cheerio for now



  1. This is a lovely card, Linda. The embossed crisscross background works so well for a baby card... has the feel of a little quilt. The clean design and soft colors are perfect, too.

  2. Beautiful card, love how you used the sentiment as the main feature because the font is so nice!

  3. Love that crisscross design and simplicity of the card, it is beautiful. Sounds like your Walmsley Wednesday nights are great fun! Anne x

  4. Awww this is lovely Linda! I love that true isn't it?! :)
