Hinge Card

Hi,how are you doing? Hope you're having a great weekend. I have been missing my fellow blogging friends! I'm going to try and get some time in my craft room tomorrow as I have another hectic week scheduled!!

We went for a lovely day out yesterday and I planned to spend the evening crafting to enter a few challenges(getting withdrawal symptoms! Lol!). But instead I spent the evening at Accident and Emergency with my husband who stood on a 5" nail! It went through his shoe  and into his foot but fortunately he didn't put weight on it or it would have gone through the other side! The nail was attached to a plank of wood and rusty...needless to say, cleaned up,antibiotics and a tetanus shot. He's fine,sore,limping and playing in a cricket tournament today that he organised months ago!!!

My son and I are off to a friend's house for a barbeque soon,so I got up really early to make a card to post. Enough of all my ramblings,let me show you my card....

I know,shock! a cricutless card!!! Lol.
I took a stamp and a handful of promarkers with me to the hospital and this is what I came up with.
In actual fact we were there for over 3 hours so I should have stamped and coloured more images!

This is the first hinge card I have ever made and I like how it turned out,I can see lots of possibilities for it. The lower layers of the flower have a brad through them and all layers of the card to make it hinge.

All stamps from Fun in the Sun by Penny Black(how pretty is she?)
Gem brad,brad and button
MS border punch
Bubbles embossing folder(maybe no cricut but still couldn't not emboss and ink all edges!!!)
Glossy Accents(glasses)
3D foam

Challenges I'm entering this into are..
Whimsical Wednesdays -#16 Any style card other than A2 or shape
Paper Playtime -#51 Summer -stamping
Paper Variety Tic Tac Toe - I went horizontally...card,water theme,buttons
Penny black Saturday Challenge -#162 -create a background using a  penny black stamp

Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for calling by.
Hugs,Jayne x
