DCM weekly dare - text message

This week at Daring Cardmakers
the Design Team have come up with this idea for you to play with,
we hope you'll enjoy it. TEXT...
definition... the main body of matter in a book or manuscript. the actual wording of anything written or printed, short passage of scripture, etc
We'd like you to somehow incorporate text into your cards this week - not just one word.. but a portion of TEXT... like a poem, or newspaper print, Caligraphy, Even rip up an old text book and use some of the paper from it, there are masses of possibilities here, so let your imaginations run riot and let us see you texting to your heart's content!
Ahhhh....this is one of my fav mediums - Text...
I love incorporating text into my art..
so here is my card, I've inked up those scrummy new stamps I got from
Scrap A While last weekend for this card, oh I do love these stamps...
Lovely bits I've used are - Stamp-it Rachel Greig stamps, Bella chipboard frame & corner, Bella Blossom, Basic Grey PP, Tim Holtz PP, Photocopied vintage Newsprint, Minimarks Rub-ons, Versa Magic Jumbo Java Inkpad, Metal word & brads, computer generated words, string & my sewing machine.
on to some other things....
Well it's school hols here at my home we have one more week to fit a lot of fun into our days, so I'm enjoying the company of my three beautiful children, so If I'm not hanging out too much in Cyber Space,(Forums and Blogs) it's cause I'm enjoying spending time with them...
also
I've been making an Etsy shop, oh it's really fun
there is a little link in my side bar if you want to check it out let me know if you have an etsy shop in the comments and I'll come and check yours out sometime :O)
I really think it's a great place to sell your ART & to be inspired by others.
that's it did you make it to the end of this post,
before falling asleep...lol!
Have a FANTABULOUS week Blog buddies :O)

Looove your card as always Gillian. The warm chocolate tones are yummy and I love the stitching and different layers.
I'm so sorry I haven't posted your ATC (feel free to smack me for being naughty!!)..it's been sitting here on my kitchen bench for over a week :O( I've had a head cold and have been putting going anywhere that I don't have too, so I haven't ventured in to the post office yet to grab a stamp - Monday - I promise promise Monday!!
Now I'm feeling better I'm going to give this dare a little whirl too, thanks for the inpsiration,
