I am sitting here now, thinking how bare my house looks after taking down all my Christmas decorations!! I suppose it's good to get back to 'normal' but it will take me a couple of days to get used to it again!
I designed this card today for the current sketch over at Caardvarks. I do enjoy having a sketch to work from and this one is no exception.I think my favourite form of card making is stamping, and unusually for me this one has only a small amount on it as i chose to use up some of my HOTP stuff. I have absolutely loads of it it the form of Carmakers Creative packs and Cardmakers Ultimate packs. Inside these books you have allsorts to work with including papers,cutouts,alphabets,vellums,little envelopes, etc and also ideas as well so excellent for a beginner!

supplies used:- HOTP 8 x 8 Vintage pack, Hero Arts Alphabet Stamps, Craftwork Cards chipboard flower, HOTP acrylic stamp(stitching) K&Co heart brad, Distress ink Brushed Corduroy, 5 x 7 card.
