Oldie for Fffriday

Hello everyone. I'm sorry it's late, but better late than never. Tomorrow I'm off to Champneys for a couple of days with my daughter. It's a birthday present - back in October that at long last we have gotten around to booking. I'm really looking forward to being pampered and have a break from cooking etc. My neck and shoulders need a good pummelling!
Today's card is inspired by Erika It looks like she had the same feeling as me on the day (and I honestly didn't know she'd written taht heading. I like her Saturday post too. They make me smile.
My offering for today is an Engagement card for my future son in law's cousin. They own a building company. they thought this "Graffiti-ed" wall was hilarious.. Sorry about the dodgy photo, even down to me forgetting to straighten or take away the envelope poking out from underneath! At least this time MRS DUCK, you haven't got to "cock your head"
5x7 card blank
MCS cd rom for the brickwork paper which covered the card completely - no matting and layering in those days! I wrote the text and created the hearts within MCS, laying them out at different angles. I coloured them white to look like paint/chalk.

Enjoy your week end everyone and thank you for visiting 


  1. Still looks good though Karen, xxx

  2. Hi Karen
    What a clever idea and really makes the card personal to them.
    Thank you for not making me cock my head. With my luck this week, it would stick there hahaha!
    Hope the "3" of you have a wonderful time at Champneys.
