Joan's favourites

Good morning, just popping in with our mid month inspirational post, the last few months the DT have been taking it in turn to share their favourite five stamps and some artwork using them and this month it is my pleasure to introduce JoanJoan is one of our newer team members but had been a regular entrant and winner of our challenge and has fitted into the team perfectly. 

Don't forget our March 'One for the Guys' theme is still running  with a £35 gift voucher from FoilPlay to be won and you will find the post below this one. Now I will had you over to Joan.......................

"My turn for mid month inspiration in which we are to choose five favourite stamps and show something made with them. Well its an almost impossible task to choose only five from my enormous collection, I have been a rubber stamp addict for over twenty years and have never parted with any of my stamps, my favourite stamp is always the one I'm just using ,anyhow here goes

I'm a great fan of Inkylicious stamps so this is just one of them, "Live Your Life" and also vine flourish

My second choice is a Penny Black Stamp called scented message, lovely for birthday cards

And next is a Stampendous stamp, Ranunculous,  great for stamping on inky backgrounds

Now I know Brenda used this one last month but I had to include it too , love the butterflies but the text stamp must be my most used background stamp ever ! Papillon

And finally this is actually a set of stamps, Stampin Up Gorgeous grunge, my "go to" set for quick and effective cards - especially for men!


Thanks you so much for sharing your lovely cards with us Joan, I am sure everyone has enjoyed seeing them as much as I have.
