Simply Dippy!!!!

Firstly I had to share what I did yesterday. I had a really productive day, backed all the display boards with the help of my fab TA!! And sorted out a lot of boxes from my move. Still some to do but can do that next week.
I was merrily stapling the border around a board and forgot to remove my thumb!!!!! ARGH!!!!!
You can just about see what I did!!!!
I worked for a while as a General Support Assistant , before qualifying as a teacher and part of my job was to do all the displays in a school, because of this I invested in a heavy duty wall stapler, much tougher than the usual one, plus I use galvanised chisel tipped staples so they go into the walls.

This is the point of entry.................

Exit point!!!!!!
I am so surprise it doesn't hurt, it did take me a few minuted to get it out as the other end was in the wall!!!!!!!

Well, onto my card for today!!!!

This is a much simpler card than I have made of late!

The papers I have used are from Papermania, and they are as their name suggests elegant!!

Coloured another Sugar Nellie Image using my copics!
I went to ASDA the other day to do some back to school shopping and saw this gorgeous little charm, for £1.00, and though it would make a lovely addition to a card, and can be removed to be used elsewhere.
This corner is cut from a cuttlebug die, it comes as a set of 4.

Other details about the card:
Base card: Mellow Moss from Stampin' Up
Ribbon: Grosgrain - Always Artichoke from stampin' Up and the braid, from my recent holiday.
Tag Punches: Stampin' Up
Extras: Nesties and scallop edge punch.
I Hope you like!
Enjoy today, its sunny here, might just get some washing down!!!!! Then the Ironing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs Sarah B X
