Love Blooms all Year Long!

Well, I've finished the hoovering and so now I have some time to craft! However, before I do, I want to share a card with you that I did a few days ago, but because my daylight lamp bulb was broken I couldn't get a good picture. Now I have a new buld, I can craft to my hearts content when it gets dark, which at the moment is the middle of the day!

I made this card using an image from a Pink Poison stamp set called `Cup of Stuff`, but for a different twist, I used the image for a Christmas card. I still think the Greeting fits for this occasion, and will be perfect to give to my husband for Christmas.

I stamped the mouse lovers three times onto white card, then coloured using Letraset Promarkers before decoupaging. This is one of my favourite techniques to use with stamps, it really makes them come to life!

Here are the deets of the supplies:
Stamps: Pink Poison Cup of Stuff Stamp Set
Papers: BasicGrey Wassail, Core`dinations
Colour: Colorbox Black Pigment ink, Letraset Promarkers
Accessories: BasicGrey Buttons (sorry, can't remember which collection), String

I really hope you like it! The BasicGret wassail Papers are just gorgeous, and the great thing is that that there are some papers in the collection that would work for all year round.
See you tomorrow for another card!

Love, Clare x
