Friendship


I thought it was time I had a play with my Card-io stamps again especially as I bought some more recently including the garden quotes set.  I do need more practice with them but am quite pleased with the way this one turned out though it could be much better. I have a diecut circle which has postits attached to it so when I want to make this style of card I simply attach that to the centre and stamp around the edge to start off with.  I used various sets of stamps and inks for this one. I usually stamp straight onto the card but this time I stamped onto white card then layered onto purple and I like the effect so will be doing that again.  Must get some Christmas ones done, they are my favourite Card-io cards. We had a lovely evening, great meal and a fantastic concert.
