Ruby Tuesday



You see, I can get away with this title as the card was made on a Tuesday and is using ruby red card stock LOL! I had this card in my mind as soon as I received this yummy twill tape and it has to be one of the quickest cards I've ever thunk, cut, stamped and fussed with ;D.

I would like to give a special mention to the lovely Tina from my home town of Swansea who dropped me a great email recently. I can't believe that finally I have found someone from the same town who shares my obsession, at last! :D. So everyone shout a big "hello" to her. I am so glad you got in touch, maybe we could meet up in the not to distant future and stroke some paper together ;D


Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up! - Stamps: pocket silhouettes and a bit of birthday cheer. Ink: ruby red and black stazon. Card stock: ruby red, basic black & kraft. Misc: wide twill tape, ruby red button and white signo pen.
