Addicted to Stamps and More

Good morning All. The forecast says it is going to be sunny and hot today-yipee! Not much sign of the sun yet just lots of cloud but I am hopeful and hope the sun is shining where ever you are

The challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps and More is Anythings Goes so I thought I would make a card with something I have been meaning to try for a long time

This what I have been meaning to use for a long time. I bought the book at a charity shop for £1 and it is full of lots of pictures that will be great on projects. I cut out the little girl and fairy image then assembled various papers and card and a die cut shape that I got in swap. I did do faux stitching around the edge of the card but it doesn't show up very well.

Great samples from the Addicted team as always.

Love Chrissie x
