Hi Everyone…

A very happy Monday to you all…

It’s a very happy Monday in my wee shed tonight, my Stampin Up order arrived in the mail today ๐Ÿ™‚ lots of nice new stamp sets to play with, I have recorded a video, showing all the bits n bobs I received, but I forgot to show the 2 x paper collections, not to worry, I will try and squeeze them into a future video ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tonight I was playing around making my own inked backgrounds using stamps and inks, I hope to share what I made with those tomorrow.

But for this evening’s post, I have a simple stamped card to share, I like how this turned out, simple yet effective (always think these kinds of cards stand out).
