It seems keeping my fingers crossed worked. Ingrid received my card on the day. Happy Birthday, SIL! I hope you'll have a lovely day.

Last week I'd found some leftover 7"x 5" envelopes. I thought they would come in handy, because then I can create slightly larger cards. This is exactly what I planned to do for Ingrid's card. But hold on a minute, cardstock is only 12" wide, so that wouldn't work. I wasn't left defeated that quickly... I adapted the card and this is what it looks like:

Supplies: cardstock - Bazzill, PPs, die cut stickers and glazed brad - Basic Grey (Urban Prairie), bling - Prima Marketing and KaiserCraft, ribbon - local haberdashery, flower punch - McGill, foam alpha stickers - American Crafts.

Earlier this week I was browsing 2Ps website and saw this. I quite liked to colours and Googled it to see if I could find it anywhere in the UK. Well, I didn't have to search far and found it here. I received the papers yesterday and was inspired straight away and made two cards last night.

Supplies: cardstock and scallop edge - Bazzill, PPs - Basic Grey (Mistletoe & Pear), ribbon - garden centre (blue), ? (brown & green), rubber stamps - HeroArts and Stampin'Up, ink - VersaMark, Staz'On and Stampin'Up, clear stamp - HeroArts, embossing powder - psychedelic StampWorld, paper frill - Doodlebug, tag - newsagent, corner rounder - Woodware, snowflake and brad - Making Memories, border punch - Martha Stewart.

It's the last day of the week and one out of three kids is back at school today. Let's hope they'll be recovered well enough over the weekend to all be going back on Monday. When I was about to leave to take Renee to school, the car wouldn't start, for the third time. As David's away at the moment, I could take his instead. Roadside assistance came quickly and replaced the battery. Still within the warranty, phew!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my post yesterday. I wish you all a fantastic weekend with hopefully lots of creativity (that's what I'm hoping for at least).
