A 'Thank You' Card

Welcome to my new followers, and thank you for joining me here.
A friend recently asked if I could make a thank you card for her. 
As I was a little short of time, I made this very quick ‘clean and simple’ one.
Before stamping the sentiment, I left the card in the die and lightly inked with
the Tumbled Glass distress ink, which leaves a nice white edge to the die cut.

Materials used:-
Lawn Fawn - Large Cross Stitched Square Stackables
Square Dies - Purchased from eBay 
Stampendous - Thank You
Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass
Challenges entered:-
Cardz 4 Guyz - January Blues
A Gem of a Challenge - Cool in Blue
Creative Craft Cottage - January Blues
Die Cut Divas - Do or Use Something New (Square Dies)
HLS January Challenge - Anything Goes with Dies
Crafting with Dragonflies - Anything Goes

Engagement Card

I received some lovely news last week. My friends and neighbours got engaged,
so here's the card I made for them.
I made it 'clean and simple', using the gorgeous heart trellis embossing folder

For the bow on the balloons, I snipped it from one of the precious hearts die.

Blog commenting issues

If anyone is having issues leaving comments on other people’s blogs, (the process 
being so slow just lately), my friend Liz posted about this yesterday.
She passed on a great way to change the settings on your blog which Brenda
 had discovered and is certainly worth reading and then changing as she describes.

I have changed mine and hopefully it will make things a lot easier for everyone.
