Love Life

Good morning you lovely bloggers! I hope you had a nice start to the week yesterday.  I met my friend for coffee yesterday and I was so green with envy - she is off to Florida on Friday! Mind you we are going in October and I am so excited, I can hardly wait - I love it in Florida!

I am trying to get ahead with myself because Harrison and Melissa, my DIL, are coming on Sunday for a week.  So I need to get 4 DT cards done as I won't have any crafting time next week. I am so looking forward to them being here for the week and I am hoping we get some decent weather and can go down to the beach - fingers crossed!

Here is my card for today:

I was lucky to win the lovely Mina's candy a while back and it was a set of Kaisercraft stamps and a gorgeous pad by Kaisercraft.  I have used the paper and tag from the pad, the tag is pre-cut you just pop it out and the papers are beautiful some are deeply embossed - I have been stroking them for a while now and thought it was time to use them!  The stamp I have used is a Kaisercraft stamp from another set I have which is called Bonjour, I have stamped it with Versafine ink onto some Kraft card. I stamped Trailblazer onto the tag which is a Hero Arts stamp.  The key is a Tim Holtz one on some Grunge which I embossed with some Distress Embossing Powder in Old Paper and tied it onto the tag with some twine.  The brad globe I have had ages don't know where that came from.  The corner dies are Whimsy and I have used my Edgeability dies for the border.

Thanks very much for coming by, I will be back tomorrow - take care xx
