Santa spotting

I'm getting really brave in my old age!  Not only stamping straight onto card blanks but also stamping sentiments right beside images, after I've finished colouring them!  That's what I call living dangerously.

Bee costume

A bit of a scary card for me.  It involved not only stamping a sentiment straight onto the card but the image too, eek!  Needless to say, it took more than one attempt to make this card ;)

Sharing spring

Another auction site purchase.  Everyone seems to be selling their Penny Black stamps at the same time I'm trying to add to mine, so it would be rude not to buy.  That's what I keep telling myself anyway ;)
