Crafty Thoughts!

I absolutely loved this stamp set from Crafty Secrets when I first saw Michelle Wooderson's cards!! It is sooooo vintagey!

So I mulled about it for a few weeks, but finally broke down and bought it and then, of course, since I don't have many original bones in my brains, I had to TRY and case this card of Michelle's!

Not bad, but my colouring leaves a lot to be desired. I think it would have been better water coloured, but I need to get some watercolour paper.

Anyone know where I can get some?? Stampin' UP is horrendously expensive

I see that Crafty Secrets has a blog too with a lot of card samples with their stamps AND they are on Splitcoast Stampers as a featured company!!

I used Papertrey Ink Spring Moss cardstock for the base and Basic Grey Lilykate is the designer paper.

I tied Spring Moss ribbon around the designer paper, mounted my copic coloured image on Lavender Memory Box paper and popped it up on my card!
I am definitely going golfing today!

I actually made a tee time and a friend and I are going out! Finally.....

I gave up waiting for is farming season and he gets grumpy when mention golfing ......feeling a bit guilty but, no sense BOTH of us being grumpy!!! LOL!


  1. that is such a great stamp set, love the DP, fantastic card.

  2. Hello Bonnie,Thanks for stopping by on my blog! Lovely card!!!!
    And have I got ?????s for you,lol!

  3. I love it! Beautiful. :)

  4. OH Bonnie...this card is wonderful. I don't have this set but I have a feeling that i will break down before too long. And go to Pickle...they have watercolour paper, the smooth that we used in class, also rough. Jim's 6 cent shop may also have some but he is selling out all his art supply stuff so I don't know what he has left.

  5. Very pretty! You're right, it's very vintagey looking.

  6. You're too hard on yourself - this is lovely! I think you're coloring is great!

  7. This is adorable, what a cute stamp xx
