I’ve wanted this stamp for a long, long time and one day, while I was looking for something else, I spotted it on Ebay, so I just had to have it… you know how it is?
I stamped the flowers again on dictionary pages, then cut them out and coloured them, although it’s hard to see that from the pic. The face is stamped again on glossy card, then attached before the flowers.

I highlighted some of the wording with white pen and although it isn’t very obvious, it does lift it a little because the background was pretty dark.
Just an aside but is anyone else having problems with Blogger in Draft?  My approved comments keep disappearing completely!  I see them, read them, tick to publish and they’re just disappearing. I thought it was a typical blogger glitch but this morning, I published 5 comments and they’re simply gone!  Frustrating …. :-(

I remember seeing that stamp and wonder if it was at the same time as when you bought it. There is such a sense of serenity to her.
Beautiful card.

Love the card and image but thought it so funny and out of context when I looked at the image closely to see "Humpty Dumpty" in print on the lower right of the dictionary page... tee hee! Sorry!
Love Jo x
