Embellish it at The Stamp Man....

I'm having an erm sort of afternoon. Today started off in a promising manner- Mr M has a couple of days off work (twas his birthday yesterday), and as we WENT OUT yesterday, we decided to STAY IN today. The requisite chores were swiftly dispatched, we settled down to be down right decadent- which in this house means watching an over 12 rated DVD on our own. We went for the new X Men, which was very good, then Burke and Hare which was funny. 

Soooooo. Why am I in what can only be described as a meh mood?

The other 3 (husband, child one and Miss Little Legs) are all off to Tae Kwon Do in an hour or so. Love 'em to bits, but I can't wait for them to go today, and I feel guilty for it.

Ah well, shall I show you something I made instead? No point in answering, I'm showing you anyway......

This is my DT card for the new Stamp Man challenge, which is embellish it. I went for one BIG embellishment.......

I'm going to enter this into the Try it on Tuesday challenge of In the Mail- as this is a Valentine's Card that will  hopefully be in the mail to it's recipient.......

Right, I'm going to give myself a good talking to and snap out of it! Wish me luck.

For this card I used....


  1. Just beautiful Lisa - I love the colours, stamping and key. Hope you enjoyed your bit of time.
