Whoops! and oldie for Fffriday

Hello everyone. I'm sorry I didn't post on Thursday - long story involving toothache and lack of sleep!
Thank you for the comments about the fountain. It does look very pretty "spouting" pink water.  We often moan about our councils but sometimes they do come good. In the past, they have coloured the water yellow for Alzheimers week/month. 
I've scheduled this post because we're off to Bristol for a Salsa party. It's mainly a pre-meet of the people going on holiday to Cuba next month. It's also going to be Halloween themed, so out comes the fancy dress!
Today's oldie inspired by Erika at Snappy Crafts is a very simple card, using the shaving foam technique on the first mat. My mum, bless her, asked me to make a batch of "Thank You" cards to send to people that had bought her gifts/flowers when she became very poorly

6x4 deckle edge card blank
Spellbinders - Marvellous Squares

Stamps Away - colour mists blue and red
Distress ink - spun sugar

See you Tuesday


  1. Hi Karen sorry to hear about your toothache, nothing worse. Hopefully ghe party will cheer you up. Are you off to Cuba? Seems to be quite popular now. Love the way your shaving foam has turned out and just right with the mats for a Thank you card. Best wishes Jackie x

  2. Still a pretty card Karen, xxx

  3. A very pretty card Karen. The shaving foam technique turned out beautifully. I'm sure your mum was delighted with the cards you made.

    I hope your tooth problem is sorted out and have a lovely time at the Salsa party. Barbxx

  4. Hi Karen this is a stunning card I love the design. Have a great weekend. Hugs Jackie

  5. I've not tried the shaving foam technique yet Karen, it looks very subtle but creates a lovely background. Thanks for sharing your oldie with me this weekend, I hope you enjoyed your salsa night out and your tooth ache has eases.
    I have put a poppy to one side for you if you are still interested will be in touch later this week with details.

    Hugs Erika. x
