the stokctake went quick and the whole clothing aisle was mine to count again, oh joy ;D
i got through the day with 2 heatpads stuck to my back and deep heat all over, lol.there was no mistaking which aisle i was in cos i stink like you wouldn`t believe, hehe.
so on to tonights card which is not for any challenges just me playing with some kanban stamps i got a few weeks ago, the quickest card i have ever made :D
products used are:
cream pearl card
scraps of gcd ella blue papers
tim holtz distress tool
memento ink - cocoa
doodling
kanban image and sentiment - coffee shop set
few gems
the coffee cup and not a promarker in sight
and a sideways view.

Wendy M said...

I love the colours and style of this card, it looks genuinely Vintage, not just made to look Vintage if that makes sense.
We have our stocktake at work this weekend so I know how you feel, it can be really tedious so I'm thankful they're only every 6 months :-)

xxxtglxxx said...

Hope you are having some relief from your back hun :) I doubt the stocktaking would have helped though!...

Love your pretty card, the pearls are perfect and the vintagey feel and colours are just lovely. :)

Take care

Hi Nic, sorry its been so quiet at my end, I just have a lot of things going on at the moment. Not a Promarker in sight but OMG it works! Just love the Vintage Shabby look! It is so good to try different things. Judy x

Jules said...

Oh Coops .. .. my very favouritest paper stack ripped to shreds!!!

Good job your finished card looks brilliant so I can forgive you LOL!!

I love what you have done here and would love a mug that looks like that.

I hope your back is a bit better today. You made me smile when you wrote about people being able to smell which aisle you were in. It does have a bit of a strong smell doesn't it and I bet the heat was increasing it. But as long as it does the trick then it is worth it.

Love Jules xx

Feebsy said...

Great card Nic, I really like the layering you've done and the shabby chic look you've got going on.

I hope that your back improves soon, and that you manage to get a better night sleep. I sympathise as I sleep badly too because of pain.
