On a roll .....

Hello there!
I hope you're all enjoying a beautiful weekend! I spent a little time crafting today and have to say I've become a little addicted to this new (to me) card fold. I LOVE IT!! I think I like it so much because it's easy and it's especially perfect for the male cards as there's not much extra space to 'pretty it up'!
So, here they are - the second picture is a side view showing you how the card stands up. The first image is a stamp from B Line Designs - a vintage air balloon. This stamp has sat uninked for way too long! The sentiment is SU! and pierced with a brad and sits over the biege ribbon.


This second card is the ever-so-cute 'Froggy Gift' from High Hopes Stamps. It was an image I had already coloured in (with copics) so this was pretty quick and easy for me to put together. the back embossed panel is the Happy Birthday folder for the cuttlebug. I used twine to tie around the bottom of the image.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love reading what you have to say and I always try and visit new commenters, so be sure to let me know if you're arriving for the first time!
Well, I'm off to have a soak in the bath and read my book for a bit! Enjoy your evening!
Hugs,
