Use 2 stamps …




Morning morning morning! I have my daughter back for a few days, she’s like a whirling dervish leaving a trail of destruction through the house. Who would believe one small person could make so much mess! She goes back to college tomorrow for 3 months so has only a couple of days to get unpacked from her work experience and then all ready to go again so it’s gonna get worse before it gets better! It’s lovely to have her back even if the visit is short and sweet and her knee seems to be ok now which was a bit of a worry for a while




Have a look on the Lili of the Valley Ideas to Inspire blog today, it’s Thursday theme day with lots of card inspiration using Balloons! There’s a prize draw too  …all you have to do is leave your name




Better late than never here’s my Papertake Weekly card for this week, the theme is…

 Anything Goes (with an option to use 2 stamps)

…and we’re sponsored this week by Lili of the Valley


I grabbed this chance to do some masking, love this technique and often forget about it..



The image is Hand Picked from Lili of the Valley and then I’ve put a Magnolia fence in the background

These lovely papers are Limited edition, I like the blue and green together with the brown. The clouds are cut with my Memory Box die, been using this a lot lately, and the stitched scallop border die is doohickey.

I went round all the edges with some white adirondack paint dabber

The fab ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, the lovely girls over there sent us a delicious bundle of grosgrain to play with so do have a look at their website, they have lots of designs that are exclusive to them and not available any where else




That’s it from me for today, have a lovely day. I notice that I’m getting near 300 followers so I’ll arrange some candy shortly for when I get there!
