a cup of thanks

Hi Crafters... Good Weekend?? i had a lovely 3 day weekend.. filled with crafting, rollerskating and then yesterday a craft stall in my local village, but back to the day job today, but of course i had to show you the card i made to play along with the Paper Players challenge- 

take a look at the card i made:

i couldnt resist playing with Patterned Occasions - such and 'all rounder' set, and i love how using my markers i can ink only where i want - meaning i can leave odd the sentiment - like i did above, this means you can use the stamps for more cards than just the one that the stamp says... catch my drift??? Doents the Tea Shoppe sentiment 'a cup of thanks' fit the bill a treat :)

take a closer look:

Ive added a touch of paper piercing too... and you could too the Essentials paper piercing pack is currently FREE during Sale-s-a-Bration with a £45 order... call or email me today for a catalogue or with your order.
