West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 20. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 25 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Pootler's Card Swap - March


This is my card for this month's card swap for our Pootles Team.  The theme is:-

PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILIES

I decided that my card would all be stamped so I started with Background stamp Brushstokes and coloured each one with a different marker colour.  I then stamped onto white card and stamped the  World stamp from The Open Sea set all over.  I stamped a border with the compass stamp in The Open Sea and then stamped the hand-cut banner with sentiment and image from Guy Greetings.

I then ink distressed all parts with Crumb Cake and finished with Seambinding and Candy dots.
