Just managed to make a super quick card with some bits I found)  – only needed to add a little more ink and a couple of stamps and it was done.  Not sure the colour of the Word background goes now I see it again but I thought it was a change.    Made that a few years ago at a class with Sandra McCall in California – it was a great class :)  Must get out her DVD and watch it again…

I’m at the tail end of a major craft room TIDY– yuk – will I EVER let it get so bad again????  Probably!  Still have card pieces to file and lots of unmounted stamps to put back on their laminates or in their bags and then I’ll probably be scared to mess it up again! 

Only joking – I have a pile of half completed stuff I’ve found and LOTS of backgrounds and images, but I also found some things I’d forgotten about and want to try out…

Sometimes tidying up is worth it, I just don't do it often enough!

This is a lovely card - I have these stamps but have never managed to get perfect sharp images from them... yours is just lovely. x

It's a gorgeous card, Cath. I have these stamps and love them. I think your title works really well, a great contrast.
It's always a pain tidying up isn't it, but so nice just to be able to lay your hands on what you want when it's done.
Have a great weekend.

Oooo Beautiful colours, the blues & purples, they give this a mystical feel which suits the silhouette stamp design. Loving the contrast of the orange/yellow title against the purples too. The whole effect is faultless. Once again I'm in awe of your art :) Pxx

Wow, wow, wow! I love it! The colours are great and I love those butterflies. I am desperately in need of a major tidy. My table looks like a bomb hit it, and the work space is getting smaller!
