We'd like you to dig out all those used stamps you've been saving, or even use a brand new shiny one and use a postage stamp on your cards. No cheating allowed - no rubber stamps or other such stuff - we want you to use a REAL postage stamp for this one.
I used one the new Papermania 12x12 papers for this - the background writing is in French. 'Paris' is stamped using some old clear stamps that I can't for the life of me remember where they're from. The postage stamps were left from a sheet of stickers (sorry they are not REAL real) and I punched the black velvet heart.
for me today - I won one of the competitions at
Charmed and the prize is £50 of stash! It's my
on the Charmed website and it was my first
attempt. I themed it on 'My Garden' and was really pleased with it but never dreamed I would win anything.
I used lots of rub ons, die cut flowers and organza ribbons, which I love and was actually quite surprised how easy it was to make. One tip though - don't ever think DST will do instead of good old PVA - it almost fell apart and a quick repair job had to be done. Bad luck about the postal strike which means I have to wait for my goodies :-(
I also received a lovely surprise parcel from Perkypigs on Cardmakers United - some candy for winning their Windows and Doors Challenge.
Should have remembered to photograph it before I dived into it.
What a fabby day!
