Farewell Riding Hood Red!

Only two days left on the Spring Catty and only a smidge longer on any retiring items you may want so be quick!

Inkee Fiddlings - Riding Hood Red - Thanks

This card base is from one of the retiring ten, Riding Hood Red and to this I’ve added a piece of Striped Embossed Riding Hood Red and some DSP from… Print Poetry DSP Stack. In the middle of the card I’ve added embossed Whisper White Card-stock trimmed with Scallop Trim Border in Basic Grey.

And what seems to be an essential of any of my cards lately, I’ve added a butterfly. This one I’ve made from the two butterflies punches, added pearls and Dazzling Details, and placed along side the two-tone grey ribbon.

Happy Melbourne Cup Day!

And here’s Life Lesson #589DON’T do an hour of gardening, planting three dozen plants, at 6am on the morning of Melbourne Cup. Let me tell you, by 1.30 this afternoon I’d hit the wall – my automatic smile went on whilst my energy levels went off. My poor friend sitting next to me must have thought she’d hit the zombie jackpot with me – sorry!

But don’t you love how this is the one day of the year that no matter who you are or where you are, everyone wants to know “did you back the winner?” “Who was the winner?” I was surprised to hear that even the children were taken down to their hall this afternoon to watch the race… it really is the race that stops the nation!

Now after a fabulous day of an early start followed later by good food, good company and beautiful views I’m MORE then ready to turn the lights out on today so my apologies now if #2 of my Artistic Etchings series gets a tad lost in translation, here goes…

CARD RECIPE
Stamp Sets:
Artistic Etchings, Heard from the Heart
Classic Inks: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Riding Hood Red
