Together Forever

Afternoon

I have had such a busy few days and the rest of the week is set to be the same.  Saturday I went to the Create It Craft Show in the Kent Show Ground which was a fantastic day out.  To top it off, it's only round the corner from where I live, so no long journey home for me.


Then this week, we have a major visit at work on Thursday, so everyone has had their day off changed.  I should have been off tomorrow, but now I have to wait until Friday, it's going to be a long week.


Anyway, I have just about managed to make a quick card this morning before I go to work.  The digital stamp is called Always Together from The Paper Shelter and I have coloured it using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Pink Centura Pearl card stock
