Take time!

Hi, it’s a Bank Holiday Monday here today and I have had a great day in the craft room playing, I will share my makes over the next few days.

First on my infamous “to do list” was a retirement card for a male, always tricky to make a card for a fella but even worse for an occasion like retirement. I had a good prowl through my stamps and found  this sentiment in a Paper Artsy set and thought it was ideal – “Take time to enjoy the small things in life”. The theme of the sentiment is “time”, so I decided on a Tim Holtz embossing folder for my background to keep it all nice and simple.

I became the proud owner of a set of Perfect Layer Rulers, and I am using them on everything, even this card lol.

Paper Artsy Stamps
Copper embossing powder
Tim Holtz embossing folder
Versa Mark Ink
Kraft papers and Kraft Card from stash.

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you soon.
