Shabby Chic Merci Card

I’m hooked… and it’s all Deb’s (Mynuala) fault 😉 .    I am absolutely loving the shabby chic look!   She introduced me to LilyBean’s Paperie Blog a few days ago, I have saved it to my favs in the sidebar, you should check her work out, it is absolutely beautiful.

This look is soft, shabby, washed out, pastel-lie and ooozes lovliness.

I made this card this afternoon, after I finished tidying and cleaning my workshop, I just love creating on a nice clean desk 😀

I’m also loving the new clear stampset I got recently from Sizzix called France by Debi Adams

I have been up in my workshop from around 3pm-ish this afternoon and have really enjoyed myself making cards and pottering around with paper glue and ink 🙂

The weather here is horrid at the moment we have high winds and its chucking it down with rain, so much so I noticed when I was out earlier today the roads and fields are flooding.

I’m going to be going down to the house to make some dinner for the troops, but will be back up here later tonight making more cards… See you later 😀
