Well another day and its almost Friday :)
I have just recently discovered the wonderful world of digital stamps there are so many bonuses to them,
I can store them on my machine and don't have boxes and boxes of stamps cluttering the house.
I can size them! They can be tiny little images or nice Large images for nice Large cards.
So today's card images are from:

I got asked to do a "get well soon" card for one of the bosses at work, the only guide i had to follow was it had to be BIG! Now i have always struggled with BIG cards as i normally just use stamps and they are a little small for a large card. Now that i can resize my images its fantastic.

Here is what i came up with

Another day, another a card - I wish! :)
More like another week and another card :( If only i could craft more often! :)
Anyway.....
I stumbled across La La Land Crafts and just fell in love instantly!
One of their blogs can be found here -

I bought a few of their digi stamps and at about the same time was asked to do a card - i didn't have much time but this is what i came up with in an hour - pretty good i thought :) Anyway stay tuned cause i am sure there will be many more stamps and many more cards… i can only hope.

I am also hoping to get my order of the new Magnolia's in shortly so hopefully i will be playing with those to! :)

Have a great day :)
