Fast Friday

puff, pant, running to keep up.
Took sample into Emma it passed muster though slightly overshadowed by the absolutely perfect sample Emma had just created!
Auntie Hywel finished at the pre school nursery and was given a monetary gift - most thoughtful. He took in some choccies and a card which coincidentally fitted the brief for this weeks Daring Card
TEXT...
definition... the main body of matter in a book or manuscript. the actual wording of anything written or printed, short passage of scripture, etc
We'd like you to somehow incorporate text into your cards this week - not just one word.. but a portion of TEXT... like a poem, or newspaper print, Caligraphy, Even rip up an old text book and use some of the paper from it, there are masses of possibilities here, so let your imaginations run riot and let us see you texting to your heart's content!

You have to look closely but there are three lots of text on this card. All the robo'd letters and the scalloped edge bit at the bottom are from a book of text papers I had for my birthday. Sweet.
Added some spotty paper from an SA kit, gingham ribbon from Crafts by Carolyn, a Sarah's bloomer, primas, brads, a button and some outline work. Simple. (Like me)

And (cough) we got a wee mention in Papercraft Inspirations

Right tea, then work, then choir. See you!
