Hi Everyone,

WOW...The weather is amazing were I am I hope you all are getting some heat too....This week's Challenge at ECLECTIC ELLAPU Chosen by the talented Kelly is" Flowers."..please pop over and take part & have a look at the wonderful inspiration from the lovely team....

Well I am sorry But it had to done I've gone and used that stamp again... I do love it... so I hope you don't mind...I used it to make a bunch of Love Letters, Do you think it works! as the Challenge is Flowers I thought this stamp would do the job...


   I used a bunch of old envelopes stamped & I distressed them with vintage photo DI...& again I used the lovely rose post card stamp from Noor Designs, some seam binding stained with coffee..The backing papers & postcards are from (the european collection) A 12 x 12 pack of papers from Tweetyjill publications.. It's a fabulous pad.. I have had it forever so I can't remember where I bought it...  I hope you like it!!
Thank you so much for your visit.....Hugs May x x x
