Anyway, no such excuses today when the courier man brought me a box of stuff this morning! One of the items I wanted more than anything else was the Timeless Textures stamp set. So it was first out of the box. Apologies to the lovely ladies at CAS Colours and Sketches because my entry to their colour challenge this week is really just my excuse to play with my new stamps.
Between the distressed nature of the stamps and the soft, somewhat wistful, colours it's ended up being a sympathy card. My new Wink of Stella pen also got its first outing on the wings of the butterfly, which was stamped with Smoky Slate onto Pool Party.
I think this set will be a really useful addition to my scrapbooking arsenal.
