Not a card

Morning everyone

Yes, its not a card, but it is my first feeble attempt at altering a notebook!
This isn't how it was supposed to look (gosh, I seem to be saying that a lot lately lol!), in my head there was going to be flowers and other embellies, but I couldn't get them to look right, so then I remembered a gorgeous travel wallet which Hanne had showed on her blog and I thought I would add some stamps, well I don't have any stamps, so I just got some images from the net....its not up to much, but it's ok for me!

So, here is my new address book for jotting down the details of all my new lovely blogging friends and since it is not a card I will enter it in this weeks a spoon full of sugar .

Here are the details
  • Image: hAngler
  • Paper: Crate paper
  • Medium: Promarkers

Thanks for stopping by, have a super day

Lovely notebook Gill, it's very rare that any of my projects come out as I imagine them!


Heather said...

Oh i think it is perfectly adorable!!! you did an amazing job on your first one! I find them very hard for some reason! And the stamp images you added really give it that little extra 'something'

Hanne said...

Oh my gosh, Gill, this is such a beautiful book! What a great idea to make a book for this use, and I'm so happy that I could give you the idea to use the stamps!!!

When I make cards, I always struggle the most with those that are ready planned in my head as I start *haha* So maybe we just should stop planning that much, and play some more?

I wish you a good night, my friend :)
Hugs, Hanne:)
