Card of the week

Lawn Fawn Stuck On You
Well todays the day we head off to Cheltenham, cars heaving to drop Harry off at the start of his new adventure.  Lets hope its not race day again.  We go sooooo stuck the last time we went Harry nearly missed his Uni interview.  My plan is to send him a card a week with a little something inside it as he's always saying he never gets any mail.  Card no 1 is going under his pillow when he's not looking ................. for him to find and open once he's settled in.  
I always have fun when I get out the distress inks and loved making up this card. H loves cactus.  The image sits on a 6 x 4 card blank, the background was inked as one piece and then cut into three sections, raised on foam pads to give some dimension for the cactus or is that cactii !!!!  (Sarah will know :-)) to sit under.

Im sure he'll call today at some point. We left him heading off to a barbecue and managed to get through the day without any tears lol!! The card went down well too. Hope all's well on your side of the pond, huge huglets xxx :-) C

    1. Hello there my lovely friend how are you :-) Surprisingly after a nervous start early yesterday all went well, no tears and we left H quite happy to head off to a barbecue at about 6. Was a nightmare unloading - no space and way to many cars full of boxes and bags to unpack. They're still building half of the halls on his campus - great for student handovers and working in their rooms! Loving the new grandbaby - congrats to you all. Will call you later to arrange our get together. xxx

  9. Hi Clare, What a lovely idea to put this card under H's pillow for him to find when he's on his own. It must be a very 'trying' time for you when your 'baby' goes out into the world on his own. He will have a fabulous time at Uni, and will love receiving the cards that you will lovingly create for him.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
