Best Wishes...

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm here today with an inky card 
(my wonderful hubby said it looked like I had spilt Ribena on it - blokes eh)!

This card is made with some lovely stamps from Dies To Die For

I used a piece of white linen card and splattered it with distress ink.  Then I stamped the gorgeous flower basket over the splatters and doodled around the edge. 

I created some simple mats and added an MFT sentiment and some twine.

...and here we are, quite a pretty effect and quite easy to make I thought.

Happy everything...

Happy Monday everyone!

As part of my New Years Resolution to use as much of my crafty stash as possible before I buy any more (sssshh - don't say it - I know what you're thinking)!...I am here today with a card made with one of my favourite NBUS stamp and die sets
from wonderful Dies To Die For
These little marching rabbits are certainly cute!  
I coloured and die cut them and then sat them on an oversized sentiment 
The stamped sentiment is from 
and I have partially masked it to just say 'everything'

...and here we are, for 2017, I wish you Happy Everything!
