Another of those large flowers ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well and you had a fabulous weekend. I have another card to share with you today and here it is …
Back to A6 and no designer paper either!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Country View Crafts Challenge Hot Summer Days
Penny Black & More Challenge Anything Goes with a StampScrapy Land Challenge #48 Use a stamp or digital image
I used Crafters Companion dies
The Corrosive Challenge #8 August Hot, Hot, Hot Summer: I went with hot colours
Not only have I become obsessed with this flower stamp I am also struggling to break away from these wonderful hot shades or lemon, orange and red: talk about the sort of colours I love to play with lol! You see it’s not just about the blue, green, pink and purple with me! I am a lover of bold colours, large flower stamps, butterfly stamps, and just any stamp that grabs my attention.
I have to say a huge thank to my lovely OH; a couple of weeks ago I was moaning that I didn’t have the pennies to spend on dies and that some of the dies at the top of my wish list were on special offer at Crafters Companion. Well you could have knocked me down with a feather when he told me to purchase them: I am a very happy bunny playing with gorgeous new dies and, ahem, I have a couple of sets of new stamps (not Crafters Companion) that were a steal, ahem, I can’t tell you where I got them because there is one other set that I really want and if I am lucky enough to get them at the beginning of September I’ll let you know if they are still a steal. I’m hoping you will see them soon as I want to try to stamp and create with them this weekend.
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 soon ttfn Karen x
