Just take my hand, hold me tight

Humph, nothing sunny about this Saturday.  Got drenched this morning so I'm compensating this afternoon with a cosy crafty afternoon in!  Fingers crossed it'll be a bit more productive than recent days,  i've been sitting down at the crafty space, looking at papers & stamps wondering what on earth i'm supposed to do with them.  I was asked this morning if I would stop crafting when I run out of stuff?  Um, no.  I'll just buy some more!

This card was made to fit the brief at Sweet Stampin' this week, to use a sentiment as the focus of the card.  I used a stamp from SU that makes me think of the amount of afternoons girlfriends & I have sat putting the world to rights!  Clearly we haven't succeeded yet.

Stamp - Stampin' Up
Dies - Spellbinders & Cheery Lynn
Papers - Papermania (yay, using old stash!)
Card - American Crafts & SU
Embossing folder - SU

Playing along with a challenge or two:

Crafty Calendar - Dies & Punches
Cut it Up - Anything Goes (100th Challenge, Congrats!)
Penny Black at Allsorts - Anything Goes +Stamp
That's Crafty - Feminine

Appreciate you stopping by, have a great weekend

The Genius (Occasionally!) xx

Tis a fabulous card. Sun shining in Glasgow now. Not in this house though, too depressed at the thought of being back home!

Your die is a beautiful frame for that wonderful sentiment! I'll be crafting a long time before I run out of paper here! haha Thanks for sharing and celebrating our 100th challenge with us at Cut It Up!

Utterly brilliant Abi!! Love the sentiment, we can only try right?!! Hope you enjoyed your rainy day play at the craft desk and that the sun shines soon. Back from my one night away. The first in over 18 months! Cannot begin to tell you how good that was for the soul! Now playing catch up with everything else and kiddos on Winter Break, so have to entertain them too!! LOL. So that's going to take me twice as long. Sorry, rambling! Gorgeous card hun. The black is striking. Love your card to bits! Hugs, Wends xoxo
