Late!

A snowy and cold day here - perfect for crafting - (any excuse LOL) - I love looking out onto the white garden - the field opposite has a white blanket over it and the only downside is the odd car that has come up the lane and spoiled the roadway with tyre marks!
Although we've managed to get out every single day for a walk during the last week, this morning the heavy snow falling beat us and we didn't manage it - forecast is for it to stop later so it'll be off for the crunchy march as normal!

Onto the card for today -
this is my very first card for the Design Team over at Crafty Cardmakers - I was delighted to be asked to join them and what a nice lot they are!

The challenge this week is 'Belated Birthday' - and if you're anything like me you'll need a few of these in your stash for those 'forgetful' moments!

Mo Manning Digi (poor sad wabbit), coloured with promarkers, cut out with a nestie and layered onto another scalloped nestie frame.
The papers are from My Minds Eye, layered onto a burnt orangey cardstock.
'I'm Late' Sentiment is from TLC again cut out and layered onto a frame.
The bottom sentiment I printed out onto the pc and then glued it onto a fancy tag.
Finished off with a bit of orange ribbon and a clock from my stash - inside co-ordinated to match.
I deliberately kept the layout straightforward and didn't use a lot of embellishments as I wanted this to be a card I could use for a man if necessary!

Come and join us this week - we're sponsored by Milk Coffe Digital Stamps AND Sir Stampalot - how cool is that - two prizes?! 
We all need to have cards like this to hand -just read the challenge rules and follow the theme - simples!

Other Challenges -
Whoopsi Daisy - Use a Digi
Created With Love - Anything Goes


Thanks for paying me a visit today - stay warm!

  25. This is my husband - he's late for everything! Spent the last 25 years waiting, nagging and finally rushing to wherever we are going. (Actually gave up the nagging part some time ago - a complete waste of energy)! Love your cards. X
