Friday Already??

Where has this week gone ?? Did someone steal it ???

Seems like it ... and the weekend is going to be busy too so if I blink I'll miss that too!
Had really slow internet today, so decided to have a little play and
make a birthday card.

Started with a black deckle~edged card which was folded in half and then added paper from the
DCWV All Dressed Up Paper Stack. The front panel was then scored and folded back before adding the circle tag with the peel off greeting. The chipboard letters were coloured with a blue permanent pen and then glittered in silver. A self adhesive sparkly gem was used for the dot over the 'i' ... just a little bit of bling.

Inside is more of the lovely turquoise swirl paper and the message panel (cut from an envelope), was randomly silver embossed round the edge before adding a small ribbon bow and greeting.

Yesterday I came home from work to find the Magnolia stamps I'd ordered the other day from SassyCrafts had arrived. Can't wait to have a play with them but goodness only knows when that will be. Until then I will just gaze at them and look forward to opening the packets.

Today ... the postman delivered me more delights which made me smile in the form of a RAK from my fellow CB friend Copse aka Karen.
There are some lovely papers and a fab ATC ... and as a super thoughtful bonus, some 1st class stamps.

So even though I haven't been around CB or blogland much this week, I haven't been forgotten which is very reassuring.
I did try to get onto the CB forum to say 'Thank You' but without success so will post here for now.

"Thank You Very Much Karen!"

Max you little tinker - you've ordered tons of Magnolia stamps (I'm supposed to be the stamp addict not you). Oh you will love them Max - best cutest stamps ever.
Tell me on cards annon where you got them from as Joanna doesn't seem to be getting the new ones in.
