first off a HUUUUUGE THANK YOU to the gorgeous Dyan Reavely for sending me a winning prize of a set of her fabulous stamps!!!!!
i absolutely love them .... i promise to dip my toes into 'your world' soon Dyan!!
ok .... i have actually made something that was NOT t!m designed!! LOL!
i had a bit of a break for a week or so as i got a bit of craft-block, and have been fighting off man-flu!!
i recently stumbled across Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium papers and fell for them immediately!!
so i ordered the 8x8 pad and chipboard tags 1 and set about making some cards!!
the first 2 of the designs below were published on their site, and as this was new territory to me i tried my version of them as best as i could;
|tying ribbon bows is not my favourite thing in the world!!|
.........so i got a bit of confidence - finding my 'decorative' side and spent a few hours over the past few days playing with the papers and came up with these:
[i couldnt resist adding a little bit of distressing and tim's vintage lace -- my latest favourite!]
|paperartsy stamp sentiment|
|again a paperartsy sentiment|
- another newly found love!
as with all of my cards recently, these will be given to the Sussex Beacon charity
