Having said yesterday that I'm not keen on fairies, the other thing I would say I'm not keen on is flowers, but I want to be a bit specific here. I don't like the normal, shop-bought (and therefore flat) cards that have a rose on and are very grannyish, do you know the sort of thing I mean? The sort of card you can buy for 50p in Superdrug.
But back last year I saw some truly fabulous Penny Black stamps that totally changed my mind. As soon as I saw them I thought, 'this is the sort of card I want to make.' I don't know why (financial constraints, probably) but it's taken me this long to buy them. I also wanted the Linen Closet papers to go with them, and when you see them, I hope you'll see why.
The writing on the left hand side is called Letter Background from Penny Black, too. These are big, solid stamps and they're a joy to use.
I love the whole romantic feel, with the addition of the lace, which really helps. I think I'll make a scrapbook page, or just a picture using these images, as they're so beautiful, it's hard to put them away!
Have a great weekend everyone,
