A little birdie...


What a fab card! And I can say that because it’s not one of mine. Imagine my surprise when I was sorting through my birthday cards from earlier this year and found this beauty... which uses one of the new stamp sets in our new catty! It came, of course, from a far-off land... Canada to be precise, where the Stampin’ Up!® catalogue comes out earlier than here so they get their hands on some products sooner. (Although sometimes it works the other way round and we get them first!)

This was made by my talented cousin Leslie, who introduced me to rubber stamping in the first place, about ... oooh... well over 15 years ago! You can’t see from the image but card background has been sprayed with Champagne Mist shimmer spray and it looks gorgeous!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
