A quick card

Goodness I'm a busy blogger this week!  I just have to post this up quickly before Management sees it.  We're off out tonight to a Michelin starred restaurant (we are avid foodies!) to celebrate our wedding anniversary.  We'll have been married 13 years on Sunday but I'm at Ally Pally then so tonight it is ;-)

I hope he likes it and that its not too girly.  I had the stuff out from MME Good Day Sunshine still and I liked the red and turquoise.  I thought it was a good use of the Love die-cut too.  I don't see why masculine cards should be depressing colours or full of grunge and I hope he agrees!  I was going to buy a card as he's not really a card person but this was so quick and I haven't made a card in a while.  I was inspired by a challenge from Kirsty Wiseman on the QVC Craft Group on Facebook to use 10 items - simples.  Other than the die-cut, the card was made from offcuts from my previous layout from where I had gutted my papers cos I'm so obsessed with getting the most from the papers!

And with that in mind, there are still a few hours left of the discount over at S J Crafts where the new Christmas line from MME has just come in.

"We are celebrating our new design team ~ Enter TEAM5 in the discount code box to receive 15% off your order.
Valid until 11pm Fri 23 Sept only!"

Now its time for me to get ready for a rare night out with my wonderful husband and then I can look forward to Ally Pally.  I hope you all have a great weekend.

Bye for now


  1. It looks great. I agree that masculine cards shouldn't have to be grungy, this is nice and bright but definitely manly with the motorcycle paper. I bet he loves it. And congrats on your anniversary. x

  2. I don't think it's too girly at all..Happy Anniversary for Sunday!
