Thank you!

Hello Everyone! Well, another weekend – yay!! This week has gone by really quickly, which is always good, but quite busy too! Thursday night was quiz night – we didn’t win, but did okay(ish)!! Last night the team went round to a friends for dinner, and we had an absolute ball! I haven’t laughed so much for a long time, I was actually quite hoarse this morning! We played Charades amongst other things, and the miming of the film ’Happy Feet’ will forever bring a smile to our faces!!
 
My card today is to say thank you to Tracy for having us last night! I have used two different forms of embossing on my card – heat embossing (frantage on the second layer), and dry embossing on the first layer. I embossed the paper and then lightly sanded it on top to bring it out a bit more. I have also used one of my favourite stamps on this card. It was one of the first stamps that I got from LOTV, and I still love it. It is so versatile, and can be adapted for many different girly cards!!
