A Quick Trip To The Orient

Hello.  Welcome.  I'm back!  The trip to England was hectic.  The trip home was just a series of bizarre events that would make a great Mr Bean movie but don't ever happen in the real world!  Yeah, right!!  Needless to say it's nice to be home.  It's been a busy day of trying to get back into the usual routine whilst feeling decidedly crappy.  I caught a cold in the UK and it's still hanging around.  I really wanted to try and make a little something so I thought I'd do some quick makes for the Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge.  They want to see some oriental card candy so I have gone really simple with stamping and embossing. 

The little fan is from Hero Arts Asian Elements stamp set.  The other stamps are from PaperArtsy LPC022 stamp set.  I embossed in black on red card and fussy cut the images.  Quick and simple little embellishments for an oriental themed card.

Off to make myself a lemsip and get an early night.  Thanks for your visit.  Hugz
