Playing with Prima


Hello sweet friends

Well it's been a better day ... even though it has rained most of the time ... I got over my rantings you'll be glad to know ... and it was so nice to read your comments ... made me feel a whole lot better ... 'Thank You'
I have a couple of cards to share .. just been playing with my pad of Prima Botanicals ... I tend to hoard pretty papers ... and embellies ... and lace .. well ok ... everything really! And I got a new stamp today that I wanted to try out ... so here's the card with the new stamp ...


The stamp is by Magenta ... sweet blogger Chris let me know where I could buy MF goodies here in the UK so went I went onto the site ... I saw this stamp and just had to have it ...


as you can see ... I stamped it straight onto the Prima paper .. and used my new PTI scalloped die
This next card is for a family member who will be celebrating her birthday next week


I used another favourite stamp of mine from Tim Holtz ... would you believe I bought this for £4? I found this terrific art shop in Warrington where people who want to sell their used or unused craft stuff can do so ... I LOVE going there because I always come away with so many bargains ... and this stamp was unused!


I am really going to miss creating next week ... but I can at least hopefully still visit your blogs
Have a lovely evening ..

Till soon

Ros these are beautiful cards! I am hoarder too of my craft supplies so know what you mean. The Prima card layout is lovely! I love the second birthday with the carte postal stamp. Truly gorgeous! Glad you are doing better. :-)

I really gonna miss you but I will hop over to your blog to go on a sentimental journey :)
You just enjoy yourself; good food, good wine, lots of sun; I wish I could be there too.

Off track; you create magic. That magnolia stamp, your new dies, the papers, the flowers...sigh...
I think I am in love...
XXXXXXX

Glad to be of some help, Ros. Our local PO are working to rule and I'm still waiting for my MF goodies - and Magenta stamps! - to arrive. It's been over a week now :( very frustrating.

Your cards are beautiful. Love the colour scheme, so elegant. Looks like a trip to Warrington is in order. lol

I really like your stamping on these beautiful papers. Prima stuff is all so fabulous!

Que beleza de selos!! Adoraria achar uma loja de usados assim aqui no Brasil!! Bem... os selos sozinhos não são nada, o que faz deles bonitos é a sua criatividade! Abraços amiga!

Oh I can easily see why you fell for the gorgeous butterfly stamp! You made an absolutely adorable card with it, as with your TH stamp, both are lovely! Enjoy your holiday, but I´m sure you will!! You´ve got stories to tell when you´re back again!
