Hi, hope you all have had a great day. We went to Carlton Village and visited Emmaus, this is a very special community which helps people to move on from homelessness, providing work and a home in a supportive family environment and enables people to develop skills and rebuild their self respect. This wonderful place is all about recycling in many ways, plus they have a terrific Bistro and out of this world yummy cakes including their famous Pavlova......you have to see this to believe it........needless to say I bought a couple of things from their shops, a reference book and a wonderful wooden thingy that was crying out to be altered, but what into, not sure yet, am just enjoying touching it at the moment, sad person that I am.........lol
Anyways enough of my ramblings. I made this card and tag, just because I love the stamps and have been longing to use them. The tag is going to a dear friend of mine who adores her cat and the card hasn't a home yet. I used a Prima Flower Mask for the background of the card, Antique Linen Distress Ink and a Promarker for the little bit of colouring in. Stamps by Papermania and Inkadinkado. Just noticed The Stampman challenge this week is Floral, not sure if this really fits the bill as its not covered in flowers apart from the background and the word Flower.........mmmmm we will see. The Tag has been brushed with Distress Inks and Flowersoft added; Stamp by Andrea Jayne for Docrafts - such a great cat stamp.
Ooh just seen the Blog One Stop Craft Challenge are doing Clean and Simple so will try the card their as well, brill.
Hope you like these as I enjoyed making them. Take care and have a great weekend, Annette x
