Miss You Card

Hello friends,
Hope you all had a good weekend, must admit I had quite a lazy day yesterday,
even an afternoon nap with Bella!
This morning I will be much busier as heading off to my crafty studio to do some work.
Thank you to those who have submitted projects for the August Gallery Day - I will be uploading images and  doing a blog post with those very soon.  Gifts will be on their way :)
Today's card is one featured in this month in Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine, 
a 10 minute make and this truly was about 10 minutes!  
Panels of decorative paper (Pink Paislee - Prairie Hill) and the feature is a stamped and inked  
Eyelet Circle threaded with twine.
Photo A Day subject today is 'Writing'
I am an absolute fanatical list writer! I have so many notepads but I always need them to be pretty and especially like lists with the words 'To Do' already printed at the top!  
These are very pretty and in fact you can download and print them from here 

Back tomorrow dear friends, have a nice day.

Hi Christine,
and good Monday morning to you and everyone. Lovely card, and I too love the papers used. Hope you have a wonderful crafting day at your studio. The To Do pads are a fab idea. I just love anything that is pretty, girly, and fancy. I have a couple of jotting pads, Cath Kidson design I had with my Birthday present earlier this year.
Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Morning Christine, I have the mag and this is a lovely card, as always from you.
I am quite fanatical about making lists too and find a great sense of achievement when I have crossed things off.
Have a lovely day in your Crafty place.

Hi Christine, im pleased you had a restful day yesterday , even a nap great stuff you deserve some me time.

I love this card the papers are pretty and i like the idea of the twine going through the circle.

I too have list pads [ must make an effort and pretty them up ]
i always make out my shopping list but im afraid most of the time i get to the shop and find i have left it behind .

Have a lovely day
Take Care

Hi Christine, another beautiful card today, I love how you have divided the papers with that lovely trim and of course the twine looks lovely too. Good to hear that you had a lazy day, you have such a lot on at the moment, I bet it felt good to relax for a change. I like making lists too, but never seem to follow them....... Crafty hugs, Anne x

Hi Christine, Late again, spent a lovely day with the grandchildren, for once no rain!
Obviously not had time to craft today, hope you enjoyed your day down at the 'Academy'.
Lovely simple card, like the idea of threading the circle die, looks like a 'craft medal', very apt at the moment. B.W. Carolyn. x
