Ivory Smooth Card

Good afternoon all, the weeks are flying by and I am finding it difficult to find time to craft.  My son has moved in with his two children and the house is buzzing as well as bursting at the seams with their belongings. The children have overtaken my craft room (which is a spare room too), one of the reasons why I cannot buckle down to anything serious.  I must apologise for not visiting you all to leave a comment and thanks for stopping by but I don't seem to have a quiet moment to myself at present, hope to get round you all next week before Easter and more visitors!!

I have managed to make a few DT samples for this week's offer over at The Papermill which is:

Ivory Smooth Card 230gm a small box for £4.00

Here are my DT samples using the ivory coloured smooth card,  this 230gm card is great for stamping and embossing, and although only 230gms is great for using as card blanks.

My first card uses Papermill Ivory Smooth card teamed with Mocha Brown Smooth card, embossed with Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder and stamped with a Penny Black rubber stamp called Gathering Together.  Below is a scrapling gift tag/card using the cut off strip from making the main Ivory Smooth card and a small corner of the brown  embossed card.

Below is a card using Papermill mocha brown smooth card as the base card layered with the smooth ivory, and a stamped image (freebie stamp from magazine) with a printed quote from Pink Petticoat.

Hope to be back soon with some more offers from The Papermill and a few Easter cards.  Not sure if I will make it for the deadline of the Quotes and Lyrics Challenge over at the Craft Barn though!

Don't let the children & grand children read this but... if it wasn't for the pesky dears we would have so much more time for crafting! Anyway you've managed 3 cards so you're doing well, and lovely too, CAS but striking.
