Precious Load

Hi blog friends,

This guest designer card is featuring at 613 Avenue Create Challenge blog this week. Chana invited me to be their guest designer for the Anything Goes – (Optional) Use Flowers challenge and what an honour for me to design with this very talented group of ladies. Their challenges are  such fun as it is always Anything Goes with an optional twist – for me this means to just let go on creativity. I used one of my all time favorite stamps from Penny Black “Hitchin’ A Ride” to create a card with a spring feeling. I really like the older Penny Black stamps as these stamps speak more to the vintage and shabby look that I so much love.  The corner die and vintage flourish die are new additions to my crafting stuff. They are so pretty I couldn’t resist buying them!

    All I can say is AAAAH . I love that stamp and you have showcased it to such a high standard ( as they say on the overseas TV programmes) Those vintage corners are amazing.

    Your card is absolutely lovely. I too am drawn to the Vintage Shabby Chic look, and you express it so beautifully. I am 81 years young and discovered scrapbook and card making about three years ago, and now it is my consuming passion! I am so glad I found you, as you are an inspiration to me. Happy Easter!
