From my stash

Hi everybody - Like so many of you I have decided to try and use up things I already have  in my craft stash.  On the first card I have used a Joanna Sheen rose stamp that my son bought for me ages ago and it got very little use.  The lovely birthday wishes sentiment I got from a http://www.birdscards.com/  this is a lovely site and is all free digi stamps and is well worth a look.  The second card is made up of free backing paper (came with a magazine ages ago) and a stamp that is one of a set that I think came free with a Debbie Moore cd ages ago and the only things I had to buy were the little flowers.   I do appreciate all you comments and the fact that you take the time to look in.

Two beautiful cards Marie-Loiuse, I love the flower stamp of your first card. A simple design but so beautiful.

The design paper of your second card is fabulous, I love the oriental theme.

Hi Marie-Louise,

I love both of your cards, but if pushed to choose a favourite it would have to be your gorgeous wreath of roses x
