Creative Inspirations #37 & Secret Crafter #61


It's a great privilege to have you visit my little blog. I do hope you find something that makes you feel that your visit was worthwhile. I can tell from my blog hops that we are all beginning to panic slightly at the rate Christmas is approaching so I hope your preparations are on target. I wish mine were.
Anyway to business - this card is being entered into two challenges. The Creative Inspirations challenge which requires a "Christmas Card & Tag Set" and Secret Crafters that asks for a "Matching Set". This is unforgivable but I don't know what the stamp is - it's one of a batch my Daughter-in-Law inked up for me a while ago. It is coloured using my Copic Ciaos and glittered over. The orange paper is My Mind's Eye - "Colourful Christmas (Gumdrop Sprinkles)", The lilac one is glitter board and the blue one is unknown. The flowers are handmade and the embellishments are from my stash. The sentiments for both are from Crafty Sentiments and the stamp on the back of the tag is from Forever Friends.
I enjoyed making these and I hope you like them. I would love you to leave a comment to let me know what you think and to let me know you've been. Thank you for taking the time to visit. I really appreciate it.
Hugs,

  6. This is a really lovely set Fiona and I love that colour combo. As for the stamp I think that is one from Stampavie's Gillian Roberts range but I could be wrong. Have a great day.
