A Scottish Birthday Lass!

A quick post today, off with hubby to Insch, just for the run. Aye right! There's a wee craft shop I pop into there from time to time, just for the chat with Elaine! Won't have long as hubby just picking up some animal feed from a supplier a few miles down the road from there, so maybe today will have to chat and browse at the same time and as I'm no multi tasker nowadays who knows what might accidently land in my basket lol!
Okay won't be coming out with too much, can't have hubby taking stock now can I! As if he doesn't already know what I'm like.
My card today is for a special lady who I know will appreciate the Scottish theme. Seen this stamp at the SECC last month and had to have it. I can see myself making this as a Wedding card too.



Woodware Thistle stamp coloured with Promarkers.
Sizzix Diamond embossing folder
Cuttlebug small dots embossing folder
Tartan Ribbon from Laines World
Making Memories Pearl brads
Wee Scotty charm

Fabby card Carol. Love that thistle and you're right it would make a great wedding card too.

Hope you had a nice trip to Insch and a nice lunch. I'm having a lazy day off today. I got lots of stuff coloured and ready to make cards on my Monday holiday but not managed to achieve anything yet today. I'm sure I was at that shop years ago with the WRI. Might need to go back for a nosey!

Another stunning card Carol and beautifully coloured.

I have a thistle stamp and find it very versatile, even for a male.

Stunning card Carol, agree it would make a nice wedding invitation. I had a look in Hobby craft and the shop in Holburn so one or two things landed in my basket !!!! It is hard to resist. Having a clear out today amongst some of my stuff and there is no saying what I might find.
