Smile - Take Two

Afternoon Everyone

I hope you are all well and enjoying your day. Here in Ayrshire it's not bad at all ... the sun is out and the sky is blue, the clouds are white and fluffy, but it's freezing! The EM had to dig out his tin of anti-freeze this morning and defrost the windscreen ... winter, here we come!

Today's share is another card made using the inky technique I describe in yesterday's post.
As you can see it's much the same, with just a couple of changes. The stamp has been placed so that the inky stripes of colour are going the other way, i.e. landscape instead of portrait, and the plaid patterned paper is from Darling Dear, a Six By Six pad from My Mind's Eye. It's an old pad, from last year, but it's been a favourite - Christmas themed but with an unusual colour palette, and quite of few of the patterns, like this plaid, suitable for any time of the year. I believe it is still available from several sources online should you be interested.

Despite it being perishingly cold here, the EM, intrepid gardener that he is, is over at our new home clearing a small area with the intention of planting some daffodil bulbs ... something cheerful to look forward to early next year :)

Me, I'm staying cosily at home, albeit still busily packing away stuff that we've been leaving to the last ... only 11 days to go now!!!

Better get on with it.

Take care and happy crafting,
