Blogger Blues.

Have been travelling since my last post and so tired at the end of the day even when I could get internet connection I couldn't stay awake long enough to post anything! A lovely week though (even if cold and (Tuesday) very very wet in the South ( so much so on Tuesday we had to abandon ship and play indoors!!), but the week was spolit a little by two things -
1.  The 6 and a half hour drive home last night - entry slip onto M6 shut so stayed on M1, then the M1 closed at the junction with the M62. NIGHTMARE.
2.  Mr Blogger didn't publish my GDT post for CAS on Sunday. NOT HAPPY!

So I am posting it now and I apologise to the lovely people at CAS on Sunday on behalf of Mr Nasty Blogger for it not being shown on the day their challenge went live.

The theme for the challenge is SPARKLE. So we had to add some bling!
This card is definitely another quick one but I was quite happy with the result.

I used a stamp I have had for a while and simply gold embossed. Some little sparklies added and a torn strip of vellum also gold embossed with a greeting. Finished!

Challenges -
Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes with Bling

Thanks for looking. Will be back later to catch up with you all - but right now the washing needs to be done! x

Lovely card Viv...despite its late arrival for you. I do like the addition of the vellum strip down the side with the sentiment. Sounds like a mixed week for you and motorway madness to boot!! never mind...look forward to all that ironing you are now creating :)

A really fabulous card, love that stamp and all the sparkle.
What a nightmare, hope you get petrol money. Weather has been dreadful here too, had heating on every night last week!
