"From the Bit Box"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who has just popped in for a look.  Welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  
Since I came back from holiday I have done NO crafting at all.  The weather last week was so depressing that did not help.  
I went to the cupboard where I keep my Bit Box, opened the door and it fell out " did you hear the words"!!!!!  Most of the bits are in another box for the school.  They will love me for bringing that along so near the end of Term.  In Scotland our children finish at the end of this month.  They will have plenty of bits to play with next term anyway!!!
Here is a card I made with a stamp and some bits:-

Base card off cut from a project
Pink & white card scraps
I inked a piece of white card then stamped an image.  A  very old wood mounted rubber stamp that I like.  Did a few dots with a white gel pen  .... done!!!
No greeting I will put it in my box and add the greetting as needed

That`s it for today ... off to look for some "crafty inspiration"
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  10. Lovely! I think the ombre pinks look so pretty with the airy floral shapes, and adding on the white 'tips' really made the images pop. Looks very CAS with all the brilliant white too. Do you know about the CAS Mix Up challenge? Well, this month, you'd need to have a die cut, but do please check it out if you have the time! Hugs & TFS (and your comment made my day. Thank you!)
