A bit of faux batik here – not a new one but one of a batch I stamped and ironed a little while ago, ready to go. I simply sponged on some Adirondack inks, then stamped (and embossed) the flowers and the verse.

More winter scenery.

This one fits this week’s TAKE A WORD challenge – Nature, Crazy Amigo’s Winter Colours and Crafty Cardmakers ‘No flowers’. That’s not difficult for me, really, is it, he, he?  In fact, I use very few embellishments if I’m honest!
One more to come from last weekend, so I NEED to stamp!

Another 2 fab cards. I think my fav is the moonlit trees. If ever you feel the need to add flowers or other embellishments I've got loads but I don't seem to be using them that much these days - I seem to be heading more and more to CAS! xx
