Time slippping awayeaeaea

Phew, I am just in time to submit my crafty offerings to a passion for papertrey's challenge which is to make a thankyou card. This has to be submitted by 9.00 am this morning - yikes ;D The card features one of my all time favourite Stampin' Up! stamp sets. For many reasons really and I am not just saying it because I am a demonstrator - it's not my style. It was only the second stamp set I ever bought (the first one being polka dots & paisley) and it made me look really good at stamping even though I had barely picked up a stamp before. It is lovely to colour or leave plain and is very affordable too.

Also this morning I would like to thank a veritable bevy of beauties, not one, but three very talented and thoughtful ladies who have nominated me for awards. Thank you so much, all of you. It really does mean so much, especially coming from such talented people who are, Abi, Karen and Lesley. Please stop by and admire their wonderful work :D

Have a great day and see you tomorrow xx

Stamps: A tree for all season (page 43) and pocket silhouettes (page 46).
