Bloomin' Lovely

Woohoo, I've got a special 'just for fun' card to share with you today, and I'm a little bit over-excited.  Right back when I first saw a card on my lovely pal Samantha's blog (see her GORGEOUS card here), I knew immediately that I 'needed' that stamp and so I started hunting for it.

Well that was about a month ago, and I was waiting to see if my local craft shop stocked it when I went there on Saturday.  Unfortunately they didn't BUT when I got home, feeling a bit disheartened from my unsuccessful shopping trip, there was a little packet on my doormat, with a LOVELY card from Samantha, and a little present.  Guess what the pressie was !!!!  Yes, the stamp I'd been trying to find!!!  I was so delighted that I inked it up straight away.  Thank you honey!!!

And in tribute to Samantha's card I case'd her card too (except I added a little row of pearls at the bottom - sorry I couldn't resist.  I was all "C&S'd" out from yesterday's card!)

I hope you like my creation.  I predict that this stamp is gonna get a lot of inking.  It's perfect for a pretty and classy card, suitable for any occasion.

See my cards available to buy on eBay


Card Recipe:
  • Stampendous Ruffled Bloom
  • Colorbox Cat's Eyes Sapphire Silk Ink
  • Typed Sentiment
  • Cardworks Shaped Card base
  • Martha Stewart Lace Doily Border Punch
  • Bazzill Basics Papers
  • Pearls
I've been inspired by:
  • Simon Says Stamp & Show - A Little Stamping (only partial bits of the whole image were used as I stamped it "off the page")
  • Penny Black & More - Dies or Punches
Happy crafting.
