Stamp With Us Recipe Challenge

I'm probably sitting in the rain as we speak, having decided to spend the weekend on another family camp out and will be by some lovely wet pond somewhere teaching my nephews to fish!

In anticipation of a wet weekend I thought I'd make a real cheer me up card for the Stamp with Us challenge.

The recipe for the challenge is 1 patterned paper, 1 coloured card, 1 flower and 3 brads, with at least 1 stampin up item on the card. I've done well with the last part of the challenge anyway cos everything on the card except for the ribbon are stampin up products. I just love using their ink pads to paint, stamp and to sponge with, it's fantastic to have colours which are a perfect match for the papers you are using - love it!!! I keep the papers and inks in my trolly all the time so that if I go to a crop and not sure what I want to do, or am away in the caravan I know I'll have products which will go together, so I dont have to spend hours deciding what to take.

If this is scheduled correctly think of me sitting in the rain (or blazing sunshine) having the time of my life with two great kids!

Bye til later

x Michelle
