Despite being assured that there was Broadband at the rented place, the lovely people at BT saw fit to let a fault on the line remain for the whole 12 days I was there... not happy!!!!! But thankfully now back at home and normal service has resumed (well nearly anyway!).
I have a CASE'd card to share  which I made a while ago  - mainly because I am desperate to post something and haven't had any time since I came back to do anything constructive - cos washing and ironing is definitely NOT considered constructive.....
I was lucky enough to win this stamp set in a challenge -
it's a fab set!
I used white textured hammered cardstock and layered onto black before mounting onto the base card.
I double stamped the bird and the sentiment onto the remaining pieces of white card, then cut out the bird with a circle die and mounted it onto the stamped offcut with 3d pads.
I scored two lines top and bottom then glued on the panel.

The feathers were stamped onto an old book page then I fussy cut them out, tied them together with a bit of embroidery cotton before fixing to the card.

A quick card which I think would be great for a man so into the stash it went!

Challenges -

Hi Viv

A really beautiful card .. .. love it!!

Perhaps Mr BT thought you deserved a good rest from blogland .. .. apart from a lack of cyber contact I hope you had a brilliant holiday.
