Susan's Saga

Reminiscing...


Over at DCM, the dare this week is all about reminiscing: "I would like you to make a card using some thing that you would normally find in an office environment. Such as... staples, paperclips, paper fasteners, file folders, library cards, hole punches, lined paper etc you get the drift."

I started with some mauve paper, then stamped it with the 'fax' and 'paid' stamps. I signed them with black pen, then 'distressed' the paper with Jumbo Java brown ink in the shape of that pad. I cut around the edges with 'Postal' deckle edged scissors and inked around the edges. I took an SU! metal edged tag and wrote 'Just a Note' on it, then clipped it to the paper with the pink fastener. I used a sponge dauber in pink ink for the bg of the base card and mounted the Note on top with a bit of room to spare to accommodate the clip.

This is very pretty Susan. The clip is a super match.

Think we've got your rain over here in the UK at the moment. Today we had hailstones and thunder, yet it was 17 degrees Centigrade! And this is supposed to be summer. Mind you it is now a really beautiful evening, without a cloud in the sky.
