A little catch up post...

Well this week I have been dabbling in all sorts.  I have been making a few bits for my Easter Swap organised by the lovely Hookin' with LaaLaa so I can't really show them until my partner Gill The Vintage Gardener has received them.
What I can show you though is these cards.  
I dabbled in cardmaking many moons ago but pretty much gave it up as I am rubbish at it.  However recently I got some free Cupcake stamps with the Simply Homemade Magazine and they were just to sweet not to use.

I had never used these rubber sheet stamps before; back in my day it was all red rubber on chunks of wood.  I took advice from an expert card maker (thanks Judith) and got cracking.
 

 They are quite simple but I really enjoyed getting my stuff out again messing with promarkers and ink ~ I had it all over!  
I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

Last week I won a giveaway hosted by the lovely Vintage Vicki, I was delighted and really pleased with what arrived, everything was right up my street!


There was a definite Red White and Blue theme, can't imagine why :)


 
Im a sucker for a brooch.


I will try my best not to kill these!

 I love it all thanks again Vicki x


p.s.don't forget there is still time to enter my Tea Cup Candle Giveaway.

Your cards look great - I've some of those stamps but no idea really how to use them to their best.

Glad you like your parcel - here's hoping the pansies survive longer than the chocolate ;)
