A Rose By Any Other Name...

...would stamp just as well? Got a bit of a Jones for background stamps just lately so this gorgeous hero arts creature fell into my basket last week. I knew I wanted to go subtle and I'll show u the fruits of my first experiment when I can decide how to embellish it but for now I'm really very proud of this creation, a layout I've seen quite a lot - I coloured the 'embellishment' roses in with Regal Rose ink by Stampin Up and cut em out with my own fair hands *smug*

Rock out…

DSC_0004 I’m not sure what made me buy this stamp set.. except it was cheap and tapes make me think of bein a kid.

I’m not sure if I’ll use the sentiment very often (a lot of my cards go to old people!) but the tape is cute so hey ho

Getting Away With It...

They say u can pick ur friends but u can't pick ur relatives. Most of my relatives have a fairly good sense of humour - some would say strange - but even then there r only so many who I could get away with this card! It was inspired by Lucy Abrams' post about the latest Hero Arts digi kit releases, I decided I wanted the 'key to my heart' kit and needed a justification.

Happy Birthday, Uncle John!
