Ruffled Bloom

I'm in a bit of a purple phase at the moment, (it may be the gorgeous Promises papers that I'm getting through at a rate of knots - I'm lucky that I bought a 'spare' set in the recent sale!!).

I'm also going through an intermittent C&S phase.  That may be my pal, Squirrel's influence.  She usually is a bad influence over me, like encouraging me to buy new stash.  "It was her fault m'lord. I know I didn't actually need those new *stamps/dies/papers [*delete as appropriate], but she made me do it.  Honest."

But at other times her influence is a good thing.  Like today, as I'm rather pleased I didn't splatter it with embellishments.

The Ruffled Bloom stamp was a pressie last year from another crafting influence in my life, Samantha, and I love it.  I guess I'm not being really adventurous with it, but I actually like the simplicity of this design using the stamp used in this way.  It's stamped in coloured ink, with a couple stamped off the page (I really need to mind what's underneath it next time I stamp off the page though!).  It feels a bit 'arty'.  As does the table cloth now too!

So yes, it's fairly rare that my cards don't need a 'large letter' stamp in order to post out.

Unfortunately this card is intended for a pal where I won't need any stamp, as I'm visiting her for her birthday, and so I can hand-deliver it.

I really should plan these things out better.
