First Card of 2011 (hangs head in shame at the lateness of it all)


So much for making one thing a week in 2011 ;-)

This card is for my friend Ann - I've not seen her for years - we used to go tap dancing together but I had to stop going when I got divorced as I couldn't get childcare.  Spotted her in her car at the traffic lights a couple of weeks ago and looked her up on facebook....and I'm off to her birthday party tomorrow.  Sounds very intriguing including a game called 'spite and malice'.............

Digi Stamp is a "little musing"
coloured in with promarkers and a little dash of glossy accents & stickles
sentiment and candy by Craftwork cards
Ribbon and paper from stash

I think the thing I am most pleased with is the background colour to the stamp.  It was white card and looked too dark so I coloured it in with promarkers but then decided it was too bright.  So out came the blender pen which I've never really used before and I just went over with the broad tip to make the marbled effect.  What do you think?   


  1. Lovely card! I like the digi background, the starkness of plain white is something I struggle with well done on finding a solution.
