"Very Simple Stamping"

Hello and welcome to my wee corner of Blogland.  Thank you so much for calling by, I love having you  here.
The day started sunny here but as usual it deteriorated into the usual rain by lunchtime.  Got the washing dry so that was OK.
Did some more tidying, in the dining room this time.  We keep a big box in one of the corners, this has some of the boys toys in it.  Went through that and cleared out all the bits of card/paper/used to make things that were all sad and crushed.  John said to leave them as they do use these, if they need them they can make more.  I am sure they will not even miss them.
On the corner of the dining table was a "pile" of bits.  I  did intend making cards with them, I sorted through, kept some then popped the rest in the bag for the school.   Naughty, naughty, I know but I am trying hard to get everything tidy.  I have told John not to stand still to long...........!!!!!!!  

In the bundle was a stamp I got from Elaine, she got it from someone and said she would never us it so gave it to me.   Elaine does craft but she is one of these people..................I am sure you all know one.   If she does not immediateley see what she can do with something she dismisses it.  When I show her tonight what I have done with her stamp her words will be "Oh I would never have thought to use it like that"

Base card was a bit of cream from the bundle approx 4 x6  
Dark green card stock
A piece of Pale yellow from the bundle
I am not a stamper so I had a few tries at getting this any where near useable
I coloured her lips, eyes and the Rose with a wet brush in TH Distress inks

That`s it for today
Thank you for stopping, I really appreciate you doing that and leaving all your lovely comments
Till next time, be good
