New card I was going to enter into the current Inspired by challenge…but once again I missed the cut off date! Oh well here it is anyway.
Started off with a completely different design idea but couldn’t get it to work how I wanted so decided to go literal with the theme and sketch. I used the Hero Arts Monthly Kit April 2018. Love how it all turned out.
Stamped cacti onto Hammermill cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.
Such a fun theme at the current Time Out Challenges – Retro with the optional twist of One Layer. My Retro take on this challenge was incorporating Hippie and Flower Power…I had the perfect digistamp from Lily of the Valley – Thoroughly Modern Misses June.
Printed digistamp onto Hammermill cardstock with inkjet printer. This is safe for colouring with alcohol markers.
I love the Sassy sentiments in Technique Tuesday Sassy Birthday Sentiments stamp sets so this was perfect for my card for the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #128 – K is for Kitties.

A fun card made for a friend turning 60. I love Penny Black images but have only just purchased my first stamp sets (more than one of course) that I managed to source in New Zealand. This one is from the Especially Micey set.
