Another day another card

I am starting to enjoy making cards again so here is another one I made last night.  I hope to get another one started before my granddaugher gets home from school.

What a day this has been

I have felt sleepy all day.  I'm sure if I had closed my eyes I could have just kept going on automatic.  I had my prayer group here this morning and I almost dozed off, they hadn't long left when my grand daughter Lauren arrived home from school.  We had some lunch and after my cuppa was finished I think I dozed again only for a few seconds.  So to wake myself up I thought I had better try making an atc for one of my swaps. a simple matting and layering an image from an old calendar, added some tiny gems on the corners and some roses.  I made one last night as well, again very simple image with words added and then triple embossed to give it some oomph.

Almost forgot

it is my nephews birthday on the 10th of this month so had to rush and get a card made for him so I could get it posted.   All the little charm and the skateboard weigh so much I shall have to get my son to deliver it by hand.  My nephew loves going to the skate park with his BMX bike and skateboard so I hope he likes this card.
Charms are from my stash, bicycle stamp is one I've had for years and hardly used. 
I pinched the skateboard from my granddaughter and removed the wheels before attaching it to the card.
The main card was put through the bigshot with a cogs mask.

In between

shopping and fireworks parties I managed to make 
1 card yesterday while crafting with my granddaughter but today I have done
 absolutely nothing. 
 No housework no crafting and only a very easy cook dinner.  I hope to get a bit more industrious  tomorrow.
