Sorry I know its been a while...I'm having withdrawals...I've missed my blogging and visiting favourite sites,work has meant no time for anything including card making. Today's card was finished some time ago; like many I've completed over recent weeks I've and had no time to post it. I'm still working on christmas cards completed two and working on numbers 3 and 4 so all is not lost; by christmas I should have enough! Hopefully things will get back to 'normal' soon and I will get my regular posts back on track and some card making too...although I'm sure that's what I posted last time too!
I have had some good news; I won two tickets to The Big Stamp show at Alexandra Palace on the 21st and 22nd September; unfortunately I cant go...I would love too, maybe next time! So I'm happy to give them away to the first person who requests them,just leave me a comment with email address so that I can contact you for your address details and I will post them on.
Tickets Give- Away
Today's card is using a cute free stamp set from country companions.I love this cute stamp (magazine freebie)and went to town with it a little. I remember making daisy chains...which I haven't done since I was a child...the stamp reminds me of many summers gone by.The die cut leaves are actually christmas holly leaves,I just snipped off the berries! The cut out flowers are also a magazine freebie stamp set. Apologies for the poor quality of the photographs; I should have taken them in the daytime!
