Morning coffee


I spent a while on Wednesday inking up a lot of new stamps, some of which I have had for a while and others like Jasmine just a couple of weeks. I still have a few new ones left to ink but that's a task for another day. I also filed all my new stamps straight away rather than leaving them like I used to do and I am going to try to keep that up. After all I put everything else away once I have used it.
Image - LOTV Jasmine - coffee
Medium - Copics
Papers -LOTV Snow Princess
Sentiment - LOTV
Dies - MD coffee to go, MFT stitched rounded corners
Punch - X cut corner rounder punch
Other - pearl pen

That tablecloth is perfect for paper piecing and a good way to use odd scraps of paper too.

Oooh you do sound organised Marianne, I still have a little basked of as yet unused goodies and stamps waiting for their first inking but somehow the weeks roll past and I never quite get there. Must try harder !

Today's card is a lovely design and unusual image and can see lots of uses for it. And a great card for our theme this month, many thanks for joining us again at Penny Black and More challenge.

I love your new stamp Marianne and what a great card. A lovely layout. I think I should take a leaf out of your book. I keep my new stuff out till I use it and the pile gets bigger and bigger. It's a bit frightening. Barbxx
