Sometimes it works


This is a get well card for a friend, and also my entry for this weeks Play Date Cafe which is Black & White with a splash of lilac (although mine is more a case of Lilac with a splash of B&W - oops).

Stamp is by Crafty Individuals. Background paper is handmade.

    You've done some fab pieces of work since my last journey across, and this is just beautiful!! The splash of B&W looks fab against the lilac...even if it is an 'oooops' :)

  4. Well that's what rules are there for - to be broken. I prefer your card having purple with a hint of black and white. Shows you have a creative mind of your own :) Px

  17. Oh, you must have a caravan...now I have envy although my fed-up-ness has gone along with my ideas.
    It is not good to have envy, but the thought of setting off with a home in tow is mesmerising..not long now!
