I used an old Basic Grey pad - archaic. I've never really known what to do with the dinosaur papers but figured that 7 year olds love 'em. The central section is mounted on foam pads. The "7" is a PTI die cut, stuck on top with glossy accents as there weren't many parts of the number that touched the edge of the cut out star (star is a nestability die). I really like this look so will use it again - but obviously only with cards I can hand deliver. The hike in postal costs really cramps my style. It was so lovely to use foam pads again!

not for you, but for the rest of the Daring Cardmakers team. You see I had told them this week that I wasn't going to be participating again until after we move and have broadband up and running. (A life without the internet, how will we cope?). However I needed to make a birthday card for a lovely boy at church and when I had finished it I realised that it fitted the dare requirements for this week. Samm asked us to make a "Hole in One" using a reverse die cut technique. I didn't do this deliberately but obviously my crafting subconscious was at work. Here is my card
I've been scrapping away with the Quirky Kit - Observations. It is amazing how far everything has stretched. I'm out of embellishments apart from a few journalling tags and a smidge of ribbon but still have some of the papers and alphabet left - after 5 layouts and a tag. Here are more of the layouts that I have revealed on the Inspirations blog - you can read how I created them there.
