Joan's Go To Stamp

Good morning to you all, it's time for our mid month inspirational post which this month features Joan sharing her 'Go To' stamp.

Our current challenge Butterflies, Fairies and Fantasy is in full swing with lots of lovely entries, the challenge runs until 31st May so there is still plenty of time to join in or enter a second or even third entry to be in with a chance of winning the super Couture Mariposa Butterfly collection.

Now I will hand you over to Joan.................

"For my mid month card I am using Botanical Poppy stamp from Inkylicious.I don't really have a "Go To" stamp but I do love my flower stamps and I have a ridiculous amount of my very favourite flower Poppy Stamps, in fact my friends are instructed to stop me buying anymore of the when we go to the shows !"

Who could disagree with that choice Joan ! My thanks for creating such a lovely card to share with us all.

May - Butterflies, Fairies and Fantasy

Hello everyone and welcome to our May challenge and this month we have a theme that always proves popular..................

******Butterflies, Fairies and Fantasy******

The perfect opportunity to ink up all those butterflies, fairies and other magical images, the choice is up to you but we do need to see something stamped and associated with the theme focally on your artwork.......a small punched or die cut Butterfly will not suffice.

You can enter up to three creations but please note: If we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third party hosts particularly Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Slipcoast. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.

We have a really lovely collection of Butterfly dies for one lucky winner......................

The Mariposa Butterfly collection from Couture Creations

I am very happy to introduce Sandra as this months Guest Designer, just look at this stunning creation she has made to share with us all.....................

And lots more inspiration from the Design Team...................

We hope you enjoy the theme as much as the Design Team have.
