This is my entry to crafting for the craic which is something for the baby and Stamping sensations anything goes. I adore these Oxford impression stamps, although they really only work on smooth card, it takes a bit of experiementation to get them to work. I mounted them on really old once upon a time papers.

yorkshire hills


this is a card for a friend who lives in yorkshire and loves walking. He calls the vertical slopes, hills, I am from Suffolk  and strongly disagree! (we are rather flat in our landscape.) This card is made using a sloped card, a tim Holtz die cut using time holtz krazt resist paper, my dearest peg stamps for the lettering and a heart from the Santoro Mirabelle stickers collection.

I am entering this to the following challenges
less is more - use die cuts
that's crafty - use kraft paper/card
Amusing challenges - anything goes 

I also want to share a few photos that I took today.

Mail art


This is my mail art for the latest TIOT challenge. The design was made by masking off an area for the address then stamping the kelp and seahorses stamps design by Ryn. Do join us we would love to see your creations. 

This is the matching card for the envelope.

The card was made by applying distress ink directley to the card stock and then spritzing it with water then I stamped the fish shoal (design by Ryn.)
