This Is Where I Would Love To Be At The Moment

I don’t do enough of these one layer projects. Not sure why because you can pack as much into them as an OTT layered card.

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight is:

In The Holiday Spirit.

Our fabulous teamie sister Terry picked the theme this fortnight and all I can say is thanks babe it gave me the chance to get away from those gggrrrr Christmas cards (Christmas I love to bits, cards maybe not) and just play away.

Dot and I went for a holiday theme, mine is a wish you were here Postcard of France and hers is a bathing beauty. Now some of you eager beavers will spot that France isn’t exactly hot at this time of the year but a girl can dream can’t she!!! And it was the only stamp I had with the name of a country.


This image always reminds me of my two granddaughter’s, Amber and Lauren. Getting homesick so I am going to stop right there.

Loved doing this postcard so much that whilst all the goodies were still on the desk I made another, just slightly different.


The Crafty Individuals stamp CI – 283 was just perfect for the postcard. Then came the inks, paint and pure heaven on a piece of card.

Please please pop on over for a peak at what the rest of the Fashionettes have created they are all stunning as usual..

    Both cards are very beautiful Shirl. Sometimes, I really appreciate those simple one layer cards where it is not possible to “cheat” by adding a lot of embellishments… Only the scenes are in the spot, and that’s good when beautiful as yours ! Hugs, coco xx
