365 cards challenge

The sun is shining, I've got another week off work and my MOJO has found its way home, what more can a girl ask for? Chocolate......there's lot of that around here too at the moment - sure I can solve that little problem!!

I have been looking at the challenges on the 365 card blog for some time now but not yet joined in, so thought I would give the trifold challenge a go today.



I adapted the measurements slightly from that shown on the linked blog, so it would fit in a C6 envelope without looking too small. I am still on a mission to use up my non SU stash, there is just so much off it, discovered loads of stuff I had forgotten about last week in my major stash clear up. I finallly plucked up the courage to use some of my Basic Grey Archaic papers, found co-ordinating cardstock from my card mountain and voila the card base was made. The image is from the Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessory set from SU! coloured with SU inkpads. The greeting is from the same set, and the tags punched using Tag and Little Tag punches from SU! and ribbon from stash.

Hope you like it, the card is now in a cello bag, in my box to sell, worktops cleared - I'm ready for another challenge now!
