Simply special


Hello blogging buddies I hope you are all well. My internet connection is still totally fried but my lovely neighbour has let me piggyback onto their connection until I get sorted - it's a little slower but hey at least I can get online.
I'm sure you have heard the phrase about bad things happening in 3's and I can tell you that # 2 is that my printer isn't working now either - GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR - considering the amount of digi papers and images I use this is as much a pain as not getting online so I'm just waiting for a 3rd breakdown now and I'm just hoping it's not the laptop !!

Anyway that's enough moaning for now, I actually came on to show you a card that I made last night while hubby was watching avatar.

It is def a clean and simple card and was super quick to put together but my mum and dad got me some new ink pads for my birthday so I wanted to use them (or one of them !) and I am loving my embossing folders at the moment and wanted to experiment with embossing just a portion of my card.
The stamp is an old one from my drawer and I have no idea which brand it is - sorry.

I must apologise for the picture - it is another grey day here today, if it's better tomorrow I'll try get another and update it x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Phindy's Place Challenge Blog
- Monochrome
Stampin' For The Weekend - Monochrome
Fabulous Friday Challenge - No patterned paper
Challenge Up Your Life - Monochrome
Shannons Sentiments - Sentiments only (no images)
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Embossing

I do hope you liked my quickie for today - thanks for popping by x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
