My very first House Mouse stamp. Yes this is Apple Harvest and a very large stamp to fit my 6 inch square card, I won it from Lisa's blog who was doing a RAK for her sister Jayme as she is very very poorly. The one and only lovely Simon Says Stamps sent my choice of stamp so quick all the way from America that i couldn't leave it alone to just sit there and got going for their own challenge 'Sweet' (apples could be included in that I think) and this is what i like to do in the summer collecting all the apples from my apple tree before they fall to the ground and get damaged, perhaps eat one or two along the way, i thought it was fitting for the Stamp Something challenge' Summer' and also added some glamour dust to bling up for Charisma #24 All about Bling. My image is stamped straight onto my card, Koh-i-noors used for larger areas and Koi's w/colours for smaller delicate areas, i'm finding this works a little better for me, sentiment from Simon Says Savour cupcake set. Found some purple ribbon to finish! I hope you like this card as much as i do, bye for now.
