Been having a little play tonight with this cute little stamp that I bought today and also the paper which is by Laura Ashley.

One of my old work colleagues from when I worked as a barmaid is having a baby girl (2 months 2 go) and she has asked me to do a few sample cards to announce the arrival of said baby. She has bought some from a shop but she also wants some 'handmade' ones for family. So I thought I would give the stamp a try tonight and see how it looked.

Now I am not a stamper - but these small ones are right up my street and I also love the clear acrylic stamps. So today when I was out I bought this little cutie for 99p and also the Laura Ashley Premium Clear Stamps £5.99. Plus I couldn't leave the shop without buying the Contemporary and Traditional paper packs at £2.99 each for the 6in x 6in. So I was a very happy bunny today :o)


This weeks friday challenge is Butterfly, Flutterby

Hi everyone :) Jo here with this week's dare....
I seem to like butterflies at the mo. This week therefore I would like you to put some butterflies on cards. Stitched, felt, shiny, bright, plain, paper pieced, stamped, drawn... you get the idea :) any theme of card but it must have a butterfly somewhere on the card!

Well here is my go!

I used a Dovecraft Stamp for the background and an Anna Griffin stamp for the Butterfly - I used my creamy Brown Chalk Inkpad on both the stamps. I also added some copper wire to make the antenna for the butterfly. The quote is from a Mariah Carey song that I found on the net.

Hope you like it!!
