Postcards for the Mail

Hi All

Just a short post tonight, can't quite shake off this cold bug - doesn't it know I need to feel better - I have new goodies to play with!
I went to a Craft Fayre on Sunday with crafty friend Diane and we met up with my lovely teamates from FSC, Cazro and Meggymay, and of course we all bought 'a few goodies'.  I bought a set of stamps from Kanban which need inking up!!
My card tonight uses a new CI Stamp that I got for Christmas.  I stamped this twice,  and  then layered up. The piece behind was stamped with a script stamp in Weathered Wood DI and then distressed and spritzed. The sentiment is Inkylicious.  The base card is Cordi nations embossed with the CB and then sanded.
I am entering this in:
  Try It On Tuesdays - Its All in the Mail
  MAWTT - Blooming Marvellous (Flowers)
  Papercrafting Journey - Floral
  Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
  Crafty Bloggers Network - Distressing

That's it for now, and thanks for looking
