hello

Something a little different tonight, a bit of an experiment! I've had a pack of acetate sheets forever and was determined to do something with them.

So, first off I stamped large dots across the middle of the acetate with stazon white ink. Then stamped, heat embossed and cut out the three flowers. Bakers twine, buttons and a little sentiment finished the card off. The white stazon dots didn't show up very well so I attached a bit of dark brown card to the back. This also covers your 'workings'.

I am entering this into the challenge over on Papertake...anything goes.

And this arrived today.....


Buddy's candy! If you don't know who Buddy is then where have you been? He is, of course, the fabulous Kath's famous sidekick. To read all about his adventures and to see some gorgeous crafty makes vist here. Thanks Buddy, I am delighted!
