2 cute rubber stamps


All the images used are from 2 cute rubber stamps., they are coloured using pro markers and added to some nice backing papers

tip for today

just been doing some crafting and needed some thin brown ribbon, and guess what I didn't have 
any, so was thinking what else I could use and decided to raid the wardrobe, 

I went in with a scissors and cut off all those annoying strings that stick out on your tops and hay presto nice brown ribbon.

But remember not to cut to close or it might cost you a few tops !!

My first stamped card

My first stamped card

custom made 80th card for retired farmer

This card was a special order, it is an A4 easel card using warm browns and greens, the edges are torn and inked to give a more rustic look to the card and the embellishments are also inked to give that aged look
