Summer florals for Quick Cards Made Easy...

The July issue of Quick Cards Made Easy is now on sale.  I was especially pleased and surprised to see my card as the main feature on the front cover, I had to pinch myself !  :)

Custom made rubber stamp from Speedy Stamps...

Speedy Stamps got in touch recently and asked if I'd like to review one of their custom rubber stamps, made to my very own design.  Of course I jumped at the chance and after deciding on a stamp of my blog header, promptly sent off the artwork.
Within a couple of days I received the stamp along with a nice new juicy black ink pad.

It's a well made sturdy stamp, love the wooden handle!

I've found it gives a perfect impression every time

and a professional finish to my handmade cards.

If I ever get around to setting up my Folksy shop and selling the mountain of cards I'm accumulating I can use the stamp on the packaging too!

Bunting card with spots and stripes...

Using up my scraps I made this oh so simple bunting card for the Spots, stripes (or both) challenge over on 'Lets Craft and Create'.
