Wow!!! so much to Share and ICS #21

Where do I begin?...... Firstly I feel so honoured that Kazan and Laura at 2 Sketches 4 You picked my card for the card of the week I can't quite believe it, and am over the moon!!!

Now technology is out to get me this month... first my telephone line down, which meant two weeks without Internet access and now I am having some trouble with my hotmail account and I am appealing to you all here to say I'm very sorry if you've received some unusual emails from me, it appears that my contacts list has been violated and Hotmail abuse team have currently ceased my account until the problem is solved. I hope this hasn't effected anyone and I can only hope they will sort it soon. Seems nothings really very safe but you're all very welcome to contact me at kimpaperbabe@yahoo.com and if anyone has sent me an email to my hotmail address since last week I'm afraid I am unable to read or reply to you, very sorry.

So onto my DT card this week for Inspirational Card Sketches....




Another fantastic sketch by the talented Dawn to challenge the mojo, well I was very inspired by Leandra's feature in this months Craft Stamper and just had to give it a go.

The sheet metal I have is self adhesive and so the embossing isn't as detailed as I would have liked. I had to de-tack the adhesive side with my stamp buddy. I'm pleased with the result and really enjoyed it. I have embellished mine with a vintage RubOn, how adorable are these two little ones? So thought the message went well LOL! Used October afternoon's fabulous papers again as wanted it quite fun and bright.

Oh Kim this is stunning! Would love to know how you made the metal frame. I was toying with buying some metal to play with then chickened out!! I love the vintage picture and the sentiment is lovely! A piece of art!

Wow Kim I wondered why I had received some E-mails, it's just terrible when things get hacked - nothing is safe these days..Hope you get it all sorted soon.

Love your card, and well done on trying the embossing technique
