Just for once

I don't do cute. It just doesn't appeal much to me. Most of my work is likely to be nature-inspired, or tending towards "arty", but when I found this Sarah Kay stamp at a show the other day I had to make an exception. Until she got married & changed her surname, my daughter was Sarah K! When she was young she collected all the Sarah Kay stickers. We still have the album. I just had to buy the stamp as it reminded me so much of her childhood.

I painted the picture with Twinkling H2Os & stamped the base card with a flourish from the "Choko" Japanese Doll set by Craftwork Cards. The frame was cut with my Nestabilities and I embellished the card with some sheer ribbon and a few Prima flowers.

Hmmm. Maybe cute is growing on me......

This is just lovely Lynne. Sometimes it's nice to have a change and this is a very pretty stamp. I love your flowers and swirls too.

Aaahhh! That is very cute! Hope you didn't spend too much at the show!

No, Sally, for once I was quite restrained!

What a lovely card - I don't 'do' cute either - but I certainly would with that stamp.

I have had a wonderful time reading you older posts and seeing your art work, particularly as you use Nestabilites.

I have recently bought a die cutter and some of the dies - so am just starting out on my 'journey' and will be taking lots of inspiration from your creations - and craving yet more of the die cutters!

BTW I will have a look tomorrow to see what make the little lace stamp is. It only had a number and not a name as I recall. I got it in a hobbies shop - which are extremely rare in the county I live, and it was only a couple of pounds.
