''I don't do black''
I used a swirl and a flower downloaded from Funky Fairys and the rest of the embellishments are all Papermania I think. Chesk out Funky Fairys shop as they have 35% off at the moment but you have to be quick as it only last 2 days.
I also made a card for K and the last card I made for her was pink and she ''doesn't do pink'' so decided to go much darker this time....
Although it is fairly simple i spent ages faffing about trying out different looks and designs and in the end I actually quite liked it!! Not too sure about the black and white creation but I may adapt it slightly.

We have just thrown our coffee maker out as it was refusing to percolate and we had just decided to buy a new one for about £30. Guess what I bought at the boot sale???Here it is in use!! It was being sold by a couple who were selling many new and lovely items all in perfect condition, hubby also had a brand new with tags Gap shirt from them for £1.50. I paid £4 for this pristine machine though without instructions but look what I managed to make................

Wishes do come true!!
Top of my wish list was a job for hubby and he started a job this week!!! I had not actually discussed his lack of job on any public forum, though close friends and family obviously knew. He is self employed and contacts had been pretty thin on the ground but after 4 months and 5 interviews he is back in the land of the employed!! YIPPEEE!!!
Number 2 on my wish list was a cuttlebug and I have also got one of these now!! I was paid twice as much as usual, apparently I was owed some money in arrears (what a great surprise!!) so I treated myself!! As you can see I have already used it on a couple of thank you cards.
My new toy is being put to good use and I hope to get some more embossing folders and some dies to try soon!
As a final note just wanted to say don't give up on your dreams as I am living proof that wishes really do come true xxx

I made these cards a while ago now when I had all the bits out for the monochrome challenge, just took it a bit further and blinged it up a bit. I kept them until I had someone to send them to as I really liked them. They have now been received by 2 virtual friends, one who sent me some images and the other who has had some health problems recently.
This card was one of those mega quick ones!! Just thrown together with love but not a lot of time!! This was for a family that had all of us plus 3 other families over to celebrate/commiserate the girls all leaving junior school. Although most of them will be in the same school none of them are in the same class and one girl is going to a different secondary school so it really is the end of an era!
