Just managing a few minutes on my poor neglected blog, I have been snowed under with making cards for my charity money raising, think I am going to have to stop soon as I have no time for anything else, I set myself a goal of selling at least a hundred cards and I am well over the halfway mark now.I did enjoy my craft shop visiting day out with makes and takes at both places and of course a few bits and pieces just fell into my basket including the Newsprint Fleuriste background stamp above, I love it just on its own ,seemed a shame to coevr it up so just added the lady from Non Sequeteur? and the freebie butterfly stamp from Craft Stamper.The background piece is a cover a card stamp and its more pink than it looks on here. Thought this might do for the Fashionable Stamping challenge which is about getting inky, I have used distress inks to colour it. I must remember to actually put in on the challenge this time, I wondered why I had not got any comments on the Asian challenge, well I hadn't added it to the challenge. 


  1. Wow Joan - this is gorgeous! Love love love the stamps and colours - the shades of blue and green are glorious!
    Well done on making so many cards for the charity - you're a star!

  4. Hi ~ such a beautiful card! I am glad that you added the girl and the butterfly, they are coloured beautifully and compliment the whole card. I tried to aim for 50 cards once and fell in a heap ~ a really magnificent effort!
    Thanks for joining us in our inky and messy challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
