Birthday Card

Another stamp set from the United States via ebay, it is called Wild Rose
and yes you have guessed it, it's Stampin Up. I saw it and just needed it.
I'm sure you crafters can understand that feeling!
Here is the first card I made using the stamp set and also using the top note die
and a roses cuttlebug embossing folder, cherry cobbler card and ink 
and old olive ink for the leaves
The greeting stamp was a free one from along time ago.
I love how it turned out so I sent it to a
friend for her birthday.

Some inspiration....Maybe?

I have really been lacking in inspiration just lately it is really frustrating
but today I went to a workshop all the way over in Newhall it was lovely, 
the lady who ran it was a new friend I met at a stamping event a couple of weeks ago,
her name is Elizabeth. Thanks for a great morning Elizabeth you have given my
inspiration a much needed boost. Here are the cards we made we 
using a shaving brush, sorry Ink Duster! to apply the ink for a different effect.      
I really had a great time and I hope you like them.

 I have even found out how to put a watermark on my photos
and here is my new signature, my I have been busy.
