Slimline and Recycling

 A late post for two reasons we has a bit of a situation needing a plumber! I was stood at the sink running the tap and wondering why the water was splashing my feet(good job I wear flip flops) the waste pipe under the sink had corroded and come away and the water was just running into the cupboard below -anyway all fixed now!!!

The second reason was I have found a new challenge blog-well new to me- Daring Cardmakers -and the challenge finishes soon so couldn't wait until tomorrow.

Another challenge asked for a slimline card which fitted my stamp nicely so had a play.

I stamped the thistle feom AALL and Create onto a book page,inked the edges,matted onto black card for strength and glued onto coruggated card packaging with 3-D foam pads.

I had stamped text on the coruggated card,text onto actual card with distress ink and distress ink through a Creative Expressions stencil-the little heart is from Stampin Up and I drew round the word love with a fineliner pen.
