Muse Club

Yipee Friday is here!

I am popping in with my card for the Muse Club 8th challenge. So far I have managed to take part each week. I have really been enjoying this challenge as the idea is to inspire each other, visit and comment on other entries. I have had such fun visiting other blogs and have come across some great crafters that I probably would never have seen before this challenge came along.  Jackie created this challenge and if it is the first time you are visiting my blog this week you will notice I have a new look! Jackie designed my new blog header and template this week-she is offering a new graphic design service which  I can highly recommend-check out the details here.

And back to my card! This week we had a fab inspiration card from Therese Calvird. I loved the big purple flower as the focal point and the her use of the twine. And this is what I came up with, heat embossing vanilla on kraft, using a purple base, button and twine.  I decided to give heat embossing another go as I was blown away by Suzy's card here at Make My Monday.


Ruth, my blogging friend and fellow DT member at Inkspirational, always decorates the inside of her cards and envelopes and today as a nod to Ruth I have done the same.

 And the envelope


As I have had another go at heat embossing I am going to enter a second card into the 'heat embossing' challenge at Make My Monday
I am also entering the CAS challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks

And here is Therese's card


Enjoy your Friday x
