Two in One



Just a short note today, getting organised to have a 'girly' night in with my daughter as she is home from university for the summer break, not that it's much of a break for her as she is working an 8 week Pharmacy student placement with a well known Chemist, better not advertise! Wine, DVD and nibbles - you know the sort of thing!

I have made a card for the House Mouse Challenge - the theme being 'Happy Birthday' and I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly, so I am entering there as well!

The image is Maxwell & Muzzy -Lip Stamp and coloured with Distress Inks. The papers are from stash.



The MS border has been run through a Xcut crimper (present from DD) which gives a lovely frilly effect - something different!

Off to watch the DVD now.

Thanks for looking

Avril
