Third and final sweetpea for now

My last card for today is for another sister in law. Her birthday is not until december but I got a bit carried away with my new stamp and had to make it for someone.
Once again I`ve scored and added pearls and the background paper is from papermania.
Just going to check what other colours sweetpeas come in lol
This is the second card made with the sweetpea stamp and is for my sister in law. I`m sure that sweetpeas come in this colour but as its her favourite colour ( I think ) who cares.I did a bit of scoring on the background to give it some texture, the backing paper is from shabby princess and I`ve added some pearls.

Thought I`d died and gone to crafting Heaven

One day last week, after visiting Mum in the home and feeling pretty miserable in the rain, I decided to pop into one of the craft shops in town. It`s actually a fabric and dress making shop but they sell quite a bit of craft stuff so I thought I`d cheer myself up a bit. I couldn`t see any stamps in the shop and when I asked I was told that they were all upstairs and were half price so go and have a good rake. Well, rake I did and look what I found. They are by ART-KURE and should have been £9.99. I`ve never heard od art-kure stamps before but believe me they stamp up beautifully. I`d actually had my eye on some gorgeous sweetpea stamps from FLOURISHES.ORG but as they only sell in u.s.a. the postage is more than the stamps. I am so pleased with myself for finding these stamps, I`m almost beside myself

Any way it`s Mums birthday at the end of the month so this is the first card I`ve made. I`m really chuffed with it. Just wish my photographing skills would improve lol
