Hi everyone,

Happy Monday, and i have some good news to share – I’ve not been sick for over one week! Hurray! Baby is finally behaving itself. I hope it stays this way, because the better I feel, the more time I get to spend in the craft room. And the secret is….I even got the video camera out at the weekend, so watch this space! :0)

I treated myself to a few more Cuttlebug embossing folders for my birthday, one of which was this Argyll pattern folder that I had my eye on for quite some time. The Argyll pattern really reminds me of dad socks and old man jumpers, so it went without saying that I would want to reach for it when making some typical boy cards. This was my first crafty adventure using this product.

Really this card was an amalgamation of testing a new toy, and using up supplies in my scraps stash, and for that reason, i’m not sure what the stripy paper is, or who makes it, but I love the mixture of rustic browns, vintage scripts and a pop of bright red to add vibrant colour.

I hope you like it too.

Script rubber stamp
