Quick and simple card!

Here is a quick and simple card I made using the off cuts of paper from my last card! I love this paper so much I had to use every scrap of it up! :-)

The image is from the new Smirk range by Dovecraft, the Love and Friendship clear set. Coloured in with my whispers pens. I saw these stamps in papercraft essentials last month and had to give them a go! Cute and simple! The sentiment is also from Smirk. The papers are off cuts from the last card I made, from the papermania retro floral pack, I distressed the edges of the paper with my craft knife! CS used to matt is from the coredinations range. The three blue pearl adhesive gems are from papermania.

I enjoyed using these stamps and I think they are so handy for quick, cute cards! I hope you like it??

I've been a busy bee today! I should have been in uni but I had directed study so I spent all day preparing a powerpoint presentation that I have to give to my team at work next week. I even managed to add some pictures to the slides which I was really proud of myself for (I'm a bit of a technophobe when it comes to powerpoint!)! I hope it makes the grade as it counts for 20% of my final mark!

I hope you're all well. Thanks for visiting and for any comments you may leave, I really appreciate each and every one of them!

Hugs, Vicky x

Fabulous Card, I too love the Smirk images they are good for everyone, but especially pre teens. I bought some and ended up giving them to my grand-daughter for her card making, I think she has them in a box somewhere, as I have not seen her creations yet, naughty girl, just like smirk. LOL. Good luck with Uni. Hugs Avril xx
