Shade Embarrassed

I treated myself to a Filofax after Christmas (my local Staples was closing down and the half price sale was too good to miss) with the intention of adding Birthday's, Anniversaries and addresses to it.

After 3 months I have got as far as addresses.  So you can now see why I love this lamp digi from Dr Digi.  And you will too at 50p!

I've already used one of the cards.  And you'd think it would be easier for me to get the Filofax prepared in advance.  Nope.  Too much like being organised!  Plus I can then spend the time I would have lost in actually doing some neat writing on thinking up witty captions.

I printed directly onto the card stock and thought that they would be equally spaced - not quite so as you can see!  Coloured with Promarkers plus added a dotted line around the edge (Nestie used as a template for the fancy bottom) with a gel pen, a button from my stash plus some embroidery thread to finish it off.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

365 Day Cards:  Day 66 - White Space
Whoopsie Daisy:  Buttons or Bows
Eclectic Ellapu:  Birthday's
Kenny K:  Happy Birthday

Image:  Dr Digi, coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment:  Computer generated (thought of by me)
Everything else:  My stash
