OLW # 50

Hello All!

And a happy sunny wednesday to you.

Since the Less is More challenge started and I got more and more into CAS cards, I began looking for inspiration on the net and found Susan Raihala`s blog Simplicity. I have been shamelessly stalking her for weeks now. She is also the co host of  One Layer Wednesday which I have looked at and thought about and have now plucked up the courage to join in with. The challenge this week is to make a one layer card using an old stamp that hasn`t seen ink in while and make a Thank You card.

Here is my submission,
The stamp is Leaf Flourish from Hero Arts stamped in Versa colour Peony. I have had this stamp for a couple of years and I think I last used it a few months ago but never before on a cas card.
The sentiment is by Flourishes Tag Lines ( ofcourse) and I think it goes really well with the flourish stamp.I used Memento Black ink.
And that`s it, no embellishments as I don`t think it needs them.

Well I finally got my Dads carpets shampooed. It took Alan all of five minutes to sort it out and would have been even quicker if he`d realised that I had one of the pipes upside down. Doh!!! I am thick sometimes.
I wouldn`t mind but the carpets weren`t even dirty, I just decided they needed freshening up a bit. They do look better though, I just have to go back before sunday and put all of his furniture back in place. What a way to spend your day off eh?

Edit I have been asked about purchasing stamps from Flourishes and Papertrey. Unfortunately, as far as I know they can only be ordered from the states.  The stamps themselves are quite cheap in comparison but the shipping is expensive and there`s also the problem of customs too. It depends how desperate you are for their stamps really lol.



Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

    Do you buy your PTI and Flourish stamps direct from the States?
