Hi peeps, just a quick post today - hope you're all having a great week, with more sunshine than we are having in foggy West Yorkshire at the moment.
I'm sure you will all have seen the Less Is More Challenge Blog, run by Chrissie and Mandi, but if not, do pop over for details and fab. inspiration. The current challenge theme is "Off The Edge". and I used two images from a very old Habico stamp set - Chinese Flowers 2, plus a sentiment from a set by K and Co. The flower petals were painted with Spun Sugar Distress Ink re-inker.
 Must say - it's nice to de-clutter for a change!

Great minds Sylvia. I bet we were stamping our cards up at the same time.
This is beautiful. I love these Oriental stamps.
Hope the weather is a bit brighter tomorrow, I'm fed up with the fog now.
See you on Saturday.
