Addicted to Stamps and More

Isn't this sunny weather wonderful? We went for an early walk along the seafront and into town and it was already hot by 9 a.m. I'm pleased to be inside with the fan on but I so love to look at the sunshine.

This week at ATSAM it is a colour chart for the challenge and here is what I made from the three beautiful colours. Wonderful samples front the great team there with lots of inspiration.

I made quite a simple card with chalk stripes and paper ribbon I made for the edge.

The little owl was from a set that was free inside a craft magazine ages ago--the mag is called Simply Cards and Papercraft

Thanks for popping in today and thank you to all who leave comments as well.

Love Chrissie x
