Une Fleur pour moi!

Another one for me and more stash I love. I have been coveting La Creme cardstack and paperstack since it appeared on the shelves at our craft shop months ago. In a low moment I thought I'd pop in for a browse and a coffee and found those same pads in the 1/2 price sale section. £7.50 sounded (to me...) so much more affordable so picked it up and stroked it all the way home, where I immediately cut the paper up to make this....

The Anita's flower stamp is one I had given and not used much but embossed in vanilla perfumed cream embossing powder was pleased with the result. The sentiment is a Katzel Kraft stamp I bought from The Craft Barn. I bought the set, all beautifull little text bits about flowers and nature and realised that I don't really have many flower stamps. How remiss of me! LOL.

I stamped the text onto tracing paper and used the hot foil pen tranfer the image in gold foil and made the flower with a flower loom, a paper flower and a satin gold heart thingy.

These small pleasures really do make life worth living don't they?

Hi Michelle. Sounds like you've been having one of those perfect crafty moments lately. They don't happen often but when they do you just have to enjoy them don't you.
Your cards are just stunning. I love those little text stamps, will have to check those out.
Your last one with those beautiful border stamps is gorgeous too. The colours are so rich.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Michelle,
Lovely card. Haven't heard of a flower loom before, will have to look out for that as the flower is fab. Thanks for your kind comments.
