Monochromatic Tree~

Hello again girls,

I made this card and the one in the previous post yesterday afternoon.
I love this "Hobby Art Stamp"-"Open Tree" and I use it a lot. I made a load of Note Cards for my Mother In Law using this stamp a while ago and she loved them. I have used it for men's and women's Birthday cards and it works for many other occasions too. I love the simplicity of it.

I have just stamped and embossed it and then used a few Hobbyhouse Pearls in Monochrome to finish off. The whole card is just matted and layered black and white, I love to do this. No messing with this image.

Our boiler has gone on the blink today at 2pm, so it's been a little cold here this evening (I can feel an early night coming on). Good job I have a whole week off, I can wait in for the Gas Man to call. Might as well do a spot of crafting while I am waiting! LOL
