Playtime!

Hey lovelies, hope you're all well. 
Well, what a difference a day makes......today we've had sunshine so bright I had to close the blind in my craft room......and it was still too bright......typical British weather!
I did manage a little crafty playtime though.....a background created with my caran d'Ache water colours & my new stamp. I LOVE this stamp, it's from Woodware & I think I'm going to use it lots. I actually cut the stamp into 3 to make it easier to work with then stamped onto some snippets of paper, (the flower middle is book print) then cut each piece out leaving a small border. I then placed it all together & added a stamped sentiment to finish.....job done. 
Rightio, off to go catch up with the goings on in Emmerdale....thanks for calling & enjoy the rest of your evening......see you tomorrow.
