Pimp Your Card! ~ Part 1

Good morning everyone!

Well what a beautiful weekend that was! Lots of warm weather and sunshine; the snow already long forgotten! Perfect weather to get things done.

We had a super busy weekend. We've been working on our van getting it all ready for the first camping trip of the year - not long to go now. We've got one last cushion to upholster ~ I say "we" - Mr Hippy has been doing the majority of it (sweet pics of him on his sewing machine to follow!), I've still got curtains to make, but the carpeting throughout has been done and our cabin seats/bed is finished (apart from that one cushion cover). We're pretty much ready to roll. We've sorted our camping gear and packed it all up. We're just waiting for that perfect sunny weekend now!

So, in the style of Pimp Your Ride (or Pimp Your Van, as it is here) we're going to have Pimp Your Card today and tomorrow. Basically, today's card is a sweet, lovely card in its own right ~ but tomorrow we're going to pimp it up by adding some extra stamping and accessories.

Here it is:

Postage Due, Postage Stamp punch, Stampin' Up!

I used the beautiful Postage Due set by Stampin' Up! - perfect for travel-related cards or scrapbook projects. I also used the Postage Stamp punch which I love. A little bit of Linen Thread just finished the card off.

Don't forget Stampin' Up! have got some great deals on at the moment (ask me about them!) and you can order any of the products you see on my blog - I am a registered Stampin' Up! demonstrator the_crafty_hippy@yahoo.co.uk

For the Mr Hippy fans here he is on his vintage sewing machine!


Awwwww! I love him!!

Check back tomorrow for the second part of Pimp Your Card
