Friday Focus

I had a good outing yesterday and my purse is now feeling considerably lighter.  As well as a wonderful selection of stamps and sample cards Sir Stampalot also stocks an amazing variety of 12 x 12 papers. I can never resist, but did manage to limit myself to grid papers to use as a background for my pages and just looked and drooled at all the pretty patterned papers.

Today's card uses my favourite go to brand of stamps - Uniko Studio. I found an embossing folder that had little flowers all over it that echoed the stamp I used and even a tiny flower shaped button in my stash - the theme should have been flowers! I'm entering this card into two challenges, Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown.

Stamp: Uniko Studio, Background Builders Flower Power
Ink: Memento, toffee crunch, sweet plum; Ranger distress, bundled sage
Embossing: Cuttlebug
Embellishments: Twine & button from my stash

LSNED Day 18: Today's page was about finding time to slow down and relax and then remembering I do have time to do this. Lesson learnt - notice when I make time for myself.

Day 19: Today's page is all about the many changes that have happened in my life over the past twelve months and how I'm trying to come to terms with them. Lesson learnt - some things you can't change so it's best to try to adapt.

Thanks for looking.
