Well.......I have actually been making some cards over the last few days.
This card is made using a free image from The Graphics Fairy which has been printed onto some soft cream card. The edges have been inked with Distress Inks and I also added some to the paper from gcd Studios.
The sentiment from Woodware has been stamped onto a Cricut diecut label.
Ribbon, lace and button from stash.
If I had my way all my cards would be either black and cream or black and white. I just love the simplicity and elegance of those two colourways.
Elsewhere at Manic Towers......we are still awaiting a visit from the joiner to shelve out the bathroom and put the new door on. We're not without a door as the old one was put back on temporarily but I want me new one and I want somewhere to put me stuff.
No Miss Doodle today as she is travelling back from a weekend in London visiting the other grandparents. Can't wait for a kiss and cuddle tomorrow.
DD is just about sick with excitement. It's two weeks today until she sets off for New York.........I may slap her before the two weeks are up.......or at least lock her in the shed. Just's lovely that she has something to look forward to.
I have to wait a little longer for my holiday which isn't until September but Mr Manic and I are going away by ourselves. We are trying to decide between Scotland and Norfolk......both places we want to visit. Plenty of time to make our minds up though.
Ah go and feed the hungry horde.
Thanks for your visit.


  1. Beautful card Sheila, cream and black are such an elegant combination. We love both Scotland and Norfolk so would reccommend them both ! In fact we're going back to Norfolk in June, hope you get your hol booked soon. Sue C x
