Where are those butterflies?


I had a good day selling at the hospital on Monday. Have just decided to do an extra craft fair on 23rd so need to get busy sewing as I sold both the felt elephants and a couple of handbag tissue packet covers and as the shop I supply want some of the latter too I had better get busy.

I can't resist buying Penny Back stamps when I spot them for sale and whilst putting some things on a Facebook craft selling site I saw an album of PB stamps. This is one of three I bought. I know the wooden stamps take up a lot of space but who cares, they are so cute. I challenged myself to take the first aper pad out of a drawer and use it instead of fiddling with several deciding what to use. hey are MME Lost and Found Rosy and I used a MFT stitched scalloped border die along with a MFT stitched scalloped circle frame die.  The butterflies were diecut with an old Memory Box die and the sentiment is LOTV. The image is of course coloured with Copics and I used a MFT cloud stencil too.

Cute stamp Marianne. I have converted my wooden ones with the backing so I can use in my misti, easy to store. Good luck with the fair sewing, I am sure it keeps you busy and great results with the sales. Enjoy.

I took most of my stamps off the wooden blocks and put them onto mounting foam. PB are still one of my favourite stamps. Lovely card and the sweet butterflies are gorgeous. Hugs, Carol S.xx
