I have tried to make my card look like I am looking through a window (sort of) by making a recessed window card. There is a really wonderful tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers which is so easy to follow and a lot of fun too. I added a border around the edges with my fab MS Valentine heart punch from Dies To Die For . A little reminder that Tracy also stocks Copics so why don't you add a couple more to your collection - I love mine so much. This beautiful stamp is called Dark Sirene and is only available from Crafts & Me in the UK. I treated myself to some more new papers a few days ago and how pretty are these ones. Can you believe they are by Papermania (Rose Garden pad). I have been really impressed with Papermania's new pads this year - all have been utterly wonderful. Lots of flowers to finish, another mix of wild orchid crafts, tabby crafts and I think maybe Joanna Sheen but don't quote me on that! Enjoy your day if you are off and please try to join in if you can. Have you seen the gorgeous piccy on my sidebar for the challenge .... why don't you grab it and help spread the word about our challenge :o)
