hi all

I'm ultra organised. All cards done & posted, overseas parcels done & shopping done. I've so surprised myself,just waiting for deliveries now of online orders. I will try to get found to posting some cards tomorrow .              Bye for now annx.


Quick birthday card.

I bought this stamp in London a few weeks ago a quick birthday make, I have a few male birthdays in the next few weeks, so in between christmas makes, it's an ideal solution to the dreaded MAN card.

It's from Red Rubber stamps, DP is from stash & looks suitably messy.
Border is MS birthday punch which I hope looks a bit like film strip.
(OK you say, in her dreams), but give it a bit artistic licence

As I daid, same card will be reproduces a few times.
Thanks for looking

Another SK

This is another SK I've had forever & not used, you will see more of them, I must have gone through a loving them faze & then put them away. They really do stamp up well.
The DP is Basic Grey & Ivy die is from Signature. I really like this one,and may not part with it.
 Thanks again for looking.

Christmas Post

This is another Sarah Kaye, I've had forever but couldn't master the colouring, but this one has turned out ok.
DP is MME & she had to have a big bow to match her hat.
Rose was a bargain bundle at craft show & pearl stem is from stash

Thanks for looking Ann x 

Christmas Preparations

This is an stamp I've had for a while & not used, I'm on a mission to use all of them.
It's coloured in a vintage style with my new SU pens.
DP is from some old Papermania I think, but it suits the colours.
Roses are from my stash, probably been around for a while.
Lace is I think a piece from my evergrowing SU stash.
I've added glitter glass to roses
Sentiment is from a bargain box

 I've given up on the challenges as couldn't get the last one to link up & my Sunday is fast disappearing.
Thanks for looking Take care

Thank you once again, sorry I've been so long but I've had pneumonia & still not quite on my feet yet.

Have a terrific weekend.
