My Friend Stampin' Up!

A funny week of work this week and a long day yesterday! My job was in Leeds and I drove there and back instead of the normal staying over! well on my route the M1 was closed in various points due to accidents and someone wanting to throw themselves off a bridge onto the motorway!!! the Police were trying to talk them down and I really hope they did! it must be awful to get so unhappy that you would want to do that and I am so glad I have a happy life and hope I never feel that sad .............I did get to work on time by taking various detours, thanks to my sat nav and live traffic reports, I really don't know what I would do without one and wonder how I ever coped before I got one. ...............Well I felt a bit tired last night.....then I couldn't sleep so got up early today and took the opportunity to post something then I realised I needed to photograph something first!!!! so decided to take these pictures in my craft room and am quite surprised how they turned out as it was really dark outside so just propped the card up against my laptop and a Stampin' Up! ruler....

Anyway, when I was making the card for Lesley I was uncertain about which stamp set to use and almost used a new stamp set from the Spring mini called My Friend.... quite apt really but then decided on the cupcake one instead....

I was just having a play and tested out my new 2.3/8" Scallop punch on some confetti white card and then realised I could make it into a a card! 

the dazzling droplets I stamped in Basic Gray and used my 2 way glue pen and added some silver glitter from the Fine Galaxy set of 5 from the main catalogue and stamped a portion of the big hello on the front 

This is the inside the hello is stamped using Calypso Coral ink

Off to get a cup of tea and some breakfast and then start work as I working from home today.

Until next time.......... have a Happy day!


  1. What a gorgeous card. I love the design. I too hope the police were persuasive- it must be a dark place for someone to be that desperate. You amaze me how you post every day! x

  2. Love it Peg, don't work too hard it's bad for the health xx

  3. Glad you made it home safe and sound.
    Your card is so adorable.
    Love all the tear drop sparkle on it :)

  4. Sorry you had such a horrid journey the M1 is not a good place to be at the best of times but gets us from A to B usually quicker !! Love the card Peg so elegant and very clever enjoy your day working from home take care Luv Sue x
