I don’t actually have a garden… Winking smile but I do have a yard and I do have lots of pots and containers, which this year are filled with lots of tomato plants, fuchsias, herbs, lavender, clematis and other delightful plants…

This week’s stamping has been garden related – no surprise, really.

Another purple, aqua and lime card for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge. (Sadly, closed…)


A ‘Just Because’ card because I happened upon these stamps… I can remember how much I NEEDED this ‘Artists’ Signatures’ background stamp and I haven’t used it in years, so I intend to put that right… the flowers are from Unity Stamps.


Using the same (PB) words with some TH flowers,, a very different card…


This one uses just a section of one of my biggest stamps… a lovely (ten years or more) old  ‘Stamp Out Cute’ collage stamp.


and not in a garden, but for fun… another stamp I’ve had for a lot of years…


…and my entry for Addicted to Stamps Black & White Challenge…  a little like another one I did.
