It has been a funny old day today. I actually won something in a blog hop - and I was just so thrilled. Then they said I couldn't have it because I live in the UK - even though I was more than willing to pay the postage. They said it was in the terms and conditions - never thought about it - I am used to blogs being worldwide these days - especially if it's a big company. Can't tell you how disappointed I am.
Still never mind - onwards and upwards - I treated myself to a magazine. I don't often buy one - just to pricey for me (you can get loads of paper for the same cost) - but I like this one best (Card Making and Papercraft), there was a really pretty spring stamp set for free.on the front and some paper flowers to make inside which are really smart.
Not tried the flowers yet - but I did make a set of really pretty little spring note cards with the pretty little animal stamps
These cards are only A7 size - so really dinky and not much space for shading and blending - but they are darling.
The papers are the new DoCraft Pampered Pets - it is fabulous backing paper. Subtle pastel shades in flowers, leaves and brocade patterns which sink into the background and let the over patterns/papers really stand out
