Oriental thoughts

What a lovely day it has been today - I spent almost 2 hours just sorting my planters out on my balcony, and hey sat with the guinea pigs in the garden - hoping that the heat would reduce their urge to fight (no such luck though).

I do have a card to share with you as well :)

For this card I used a Me to You pre-embossed card blank and coloured part of the surface with carved pumpkin distressed ink. I then used my pretty colour black ink pad to stamp the sentiment on the bottom, using a free gift stamp set. The image was stamped with the same ink and was free with Creative Stamping magazine (Clear Impressions).

A nice one-layer CAS card! :)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
addicted-to-stamps #165 and MAWTT #72 black, white and one other colour
Simply less is moore #372 Thinking of you
Alphabet challenge - E for Ebony
The Paper Players #396 Animal Antics

And here are some pictures of piggy ( my older guinea pig):

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
