Oh and I have discovered the secret of why we love rubber stamps so much, they reminds us of the comfort of hotwater bottles as children!
This gorgeous new Sarah Kay stamp has been coloured in distressed inks and mounted onto Basic Grey Sugared paper stock. I have made a bouquet from WOC flowers and added them to the sketch instead of the sentiment as that is in the sketch below. I have left it blank at present as I am not sure what I want to say yet. I do hope you like it.
Challenges - all are directly linked on my sidebar

A simple scrapbook layout this week for me for Secret Crafter my hayfever was so bad in the middle of the week (did you notice a lack of cards) that I was not able to see properly out of the one eye they are so red and itchy at the moment. I used Tim Holtz tags and cut a train out of one using my cuttlebug die. Do check out the other teams work and nip over to Wendy's shop Secret Crafter and check out the Mollie and Jake stamps I keep showing on my blog, they are selling out fast!!!!

Wow it is beautiful and sunny here today. The boys are playing outside and Paul is reading the paper so I snuck into my craftroom :).
The first of todays cards is this one using a sweetpea image, I have so many of these on my wishlist at the moment. The papers are Basic Grey Origins and I have coloured her in copics. The flowers were a rak of Cathy. I have decided to keep it nice and simple, but the bow looks slightly at an angle as I have had to use the scanner as the camera is still not fixed grr.
