Hello, we're halfway through the month at Stamping Sensations where our theme is Favourite Stamp of the Moment and I've another favourite image to share with you - an all time favourite of the moment as regular visitors will realise - Visible Image Creative Chaos.

It's another Oxide ink on Glossy paper background and |I've stamped an extra flower head onto watercolour card and coloured with pinks to match the Kitsch Flamingo ink used in the background.  A simple go to greeting, again stamped in black.

Going Round in Circles at TioT




 We're Going Round in Circles at Try it on Tuesday this fortnight, a fun challenge so I thought I'd do a fun card as I do need some 'girly' cards for birthdays this month.

I've used a Flonzcraft image and a circle stencil for the background.  I've lost the packaging for the quote, so not sure where this came from.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration,  so please pop over to the main blog  and pay them a visit, you'll also find all the challenge details.

Keep it Simple at Try it on Tuesday





The new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is Keep it Simple,  how simple,  is up to you.  

I've gone very simple with a little stamping and some soft water colouring.  I first saw these images on Eileen Godwin's FB page and the stamp company Colorado Craft Company was named. I don't normally do cute, but since becoming a Grandma, well, the soft side is making an appearance from time to time in crafting.

I've used white Linen card and Versafine ink and a little water colour paint - how simple is that.

The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.

Thanks for calling in, have a great day.
