I’ve had a good couple of weeks, winning a second place prize from

Stamping Sensations


Top Five in Try it on Tuesday

and Winner in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

So I’ve been doing the happy dance Smile

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

This week, I’ve been playing with lots of scraps, using up bits of backgrounds and just doing some quick and easy bits, using new stamps and parts of stamps. 

This was my pile of ‘Works in Progress’, either coloured or waiting for colour…


… and here are some of the results.

Scraplings (offcuts of folded cards created when cutting prefolded cards to size) – these two are roughly 3-4cm wide.


Simple 3” square cards…


A simply stamped card, dry embossed…


Another simple 3x3 card…


…and using up a scrap of background paper…


There’s more, but that’s enough for now. I haven’t had much chance to post before now, so I thought I’d just pop by to say hello.

I’d like to link one of the above cards to:-

Everybody Art Challenge – Anything Goes

Inspiration Destination – Anything Goes

Sparkles Monthly Challenge – Clean and Simple

Thanks for looking!

See you soon

Wonderful cards as always, Cath. I get an email everytime you post and I don't always come and leave a comment but I always love seeing your creations. Where do you find all the great words and sayings stamps that you add? They are great
