This is one of my favourite card designs and one I have (very rare for me) repeated many times because I love it so much. I needed a card to send for something special.

I really love this Vitality stamp!

You’d think I’d have this design ‘off pat’ by now, but no – I stamped the flower (using felt tip pens) then it took me 8 – yes EIGHT attempts to get the wording right – it kept smudging, then I smudged it while cutting the card – unbelievable!!!!!

This is a quick card, made to accompany something else – made from one of the scratch papers I use to protect the desk when I’m stamping and inking. The stamp is a new one – a gift – so of course I had to try it out :) Thank you, Mel!!

Beautiful dreamy flowery cards Cath. Looks like I see a little clean and simple style creeping in there lol. The multi coloured card is also stunning and very vibrant. Pxx

Very different cards, but equally enchanting. I love that flower stamp too. Yes, simply elegant, & right for so many occasions.

Stunning cards - really beautiful and feminine and classy.

The collage card is brilliant too - Oh La La - not seen that stamp before.
