A Touch of Art Deco

Hiya Peeps,

Well it's almost the weekend and I already know there's not going to be enough hours in the day.  It's Hubby's birthday weekend so we are out with friends tomorrow evening and again on Monday and I'm going with my son to see Twilight tonight, so all in all not alot of crafting time but I will have to try and fit it in here and there as I have 6 commissioned cards to do and need to prepare for a small craft fair that I am doing with my sister on 3rd December.  I'm also meant to be fitting the gymn in too, grrrrr, gosh I'm worn out thinking about it, lol.

Right, now I've bored you with my weekend activities I'll introduce you to my card today.  I have used one of the Art Deco Stamps from Crafts and Me called "Glamour" available HERE.   I got some gorogeous Graphic 45 paper from the recent Show at Alexandra palace which compliments this image well I think.

I know exactly how you feel. Just not enough hours in the day. I always think.. if there were more though, I'd spend longer in bed. In the end I'd not be any further forward! LOL. Good luck with it all. Enjoy Twilight too. Lucky lady! ;) Don't spoil it for us.

Gorgeous card, sorry I've not stopped by lately! Your skin colouring is fantabulous and the mix of papers and flowers are perfect!!
