Heat Wave...

Gosh it certainly feels like a heat wave here today!! It's too hot to sit and craft all day so today's card is a quick make.
A simple card made with a Hero Arts stamp that I bought and then put away and forgot about, so this is the first time it has been inked. I stuck to a simple black and white theme and finished it off with some white organza ribbon and a couple of pins ( diamante pins are my absolute favourite at the moment) from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

I'm entering this into the following challenges;

Paper Creators crafts - Say it with Flowers
Polka Doodles - In an English Country Garden
Make it Monday challenge

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Beautiful, I love the crispness of this in black and white!

  2. Lovely monochrome card, Sarah. Your ribbon and button embellishment finish it off beautifully!

    It's very humid and heavy here in West Yorkshire, too. We've had a couple of thunderstorms but it hasn't cleared the air x
