Red is out and about again ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I’ve another card I’ve created with this beautiful stamp!  This is a Paperbabe stamp, Kim Costello is the artist and owner of Paperbabe stamps.  To try and get more people aware of Kim’s stamps I wanted to let you all know that there is a fortnightly challenge blog and you don’t have to use a Paperbabe stamp to enter, at the moment.  You can enter the challenges with any stamp brand at the moment.  I’m very lucky because I have several of Kim’s stamps and this is one of my newer ones and I enjoyed playing and colouring so much last month that I got her out again and here is my card …

I love creating A6 cards like this 
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

  Paper Sweeties Challenge #34 Happy Birthday 

Colours & Optional Twist
I’ve a list in a box of stamps that are waiting to be used &
another list of stamps that I’ve only used once & working my through them

This time whilst I was playing with the stamp I decided to create a less fussy card.  I wanted it to be all about Red out on a walk on a summer day and I’m very happy with the end result too!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x
