FOR KEVIN







Hi

A very good buddy of mine called Kevin, who is a terrific cardmaker, sent me a wonderful stamp as he said he wouldn't use it. When it arrived the other day I was amazed how beautiful it was, I think its a Heron..... and he knows I adore stamps............ how kind is that, brilliant. So I made a Thank You card with it, and altered a Large Luggage Label. Used various mediums as wanted to create different effects for each side, although the stamp is placed in the same place. They are now in the post for Kevin and just hope he likes them.......

Thank you for popping by and thank you Kevin for a wonderful stamp. Enjoy the rest of the day and have a great weekend. Annette x

Does 'your' Kevin have a Scottish sounding surname?! If so, he is probably the Kevin that I used to correspond and exchange stamps with.... he is a fantastic card maker if it is the same person lol!!! Love the heron and what you've done with it.

Hi Annette

A gorgeous stamp and you have used it beautifully.

It's funny how a stamp one person cannot use is transformed by another.

I bet Kevin will be well pleased when he sees what you have done with it (and might even want it back again LOL!!!).

Have a good Sunday.

Love Jules xx

It so good to have nice friends who again have so very creative friend as you. These projects looks stunning.
As for my not so understandable norwegian, I've now added google translator to my blog, so when I post i norwegian it is possible for you and other to read my writing. I still would love to have you snailmail adress Annette. If you would let me have it, please send me a mail..
Big Hug
Linda
