"One for the box"

Hello Blog friends a quick post this evening.
Thank you so much for calling by, I love that you take time to visit.
 Keeping this short I have lots to do before taking off tomorrow morning.  
I am picking Elaine up tomorrow morning at 10.45 then on to Perth to meet Hazel.  We will then all meet Kate (Culliesocks) off her bus from Inverness.    We then head for Edinburgh Airport to catch our flight to Birmingham.  Talk about excitement!!!! popped in to the Tearoom for a cuppa and see Elaine.  Man!! she was running about like a "headless chicken".  Think she will be really glad to get away and have some "fun"
My card today is one for the box

White 5 x 5 base card
Lilac card
White card embossed after I had covered the embossing folder with distress ink
I did not use the first run through it was just a bit too dark.  This was the second run through
SB Heart Die with a small square die set in and then cut out to form a frame
Flowers and foliage cut using various Dies and Punches

That`s it for today off to get myself together
Thank you for calling by today I really appreciate that
Till I get good

  23. Hi Patricia,
    what a lovely card. Love the inked embossing, and the clever design.
    I have used this technic once, and must have a go again now you have reminded me.
    Have a great spend up at the NEC. I loved it when I went in March.
    There was a stall with everything a £1, and I got some really great things in it, so I am looking forward to going again in March next year.
    I wish I could have gone today as well but the pennies won't stretch that far. lol. I would have loved to have met you all.
    Have fun there, I can't see you lot, being up too late after walking round there you will be exhausted.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
