Living life on the Edge(abilities that is)!

Phew hope everyone's enjoying the heat wave shame it couldn't have come in summer when we were waiting for it! 

Well I must say  I am loving my edgeabilities, I'm going around using them on everything!  With it being WOYWW yesterday I have had chance to make a few cards so that I have a little stock of them now.  I like to have a few in "hand" as it were so I always have something to post.  My card today is a break from usual as it is a sentiment only card and my husband thought it was a sympathy card (cheeky devil) but I know what he means cause its black!!

As you can see I have used my edgies (no surprise there right?) and the sentiment is a digital one from Whimsy. The papers are digital from Raspberry Road but I can't remember where the script one is from - sorry! I have coloured some pearls with black copic and put them on the edgie but I used my tweezers and the ink musn't have been dry cause I got a little spot on the sentiment hence the pearl heart! grrrr!!!! But I'd already finished the card so I had to do a quick rescue. I quite like black and white because I think it always looks dramatic but I know what my husband means, guess it means I can't give it to him for our anniversary next month - ha ha!

I'd like to welcome my new followers and thank them so much - cheers girls!!

Hi Susan, thankyou for concern and lovely comments on my blog. It's been really busy here last week and my son went to uni and took my computer cable with I now have a new cable and can upload my pics
When I came to your blog I couldn't believe that we have used similar colours and paper. I love the sentiment you have used and the lush ribbon. Also like the scalloped edge. Have you used a punch for this?
