Candlestick Cottage

A card with another of my Kadoodle Cottage series of stamp designs. This is Candlestick Cottage and it was named by Sandy, owner of The Craft Barn, home of Kadoodle Stamps. The image is pencil coloured and blended with Sansodor and a paper stump. I've matted the image on the reverse side of the wonderful paper that Sandy gave me to make up my samples and this is also available at The Craft Barn, it's mounted on dimension tape. The side border is cut again from the reverse of the paper with a scalloped blade, punched with a hole punch and threaded with pale gold ribbon. The sentiment is computer generated.

My friend Sandra was also demonstrating her new stamps today and they're absolutely stunning. Primrose has got my name on her, they're so funny and different. Fantastic Sandra!

I'd like to thank everyone who came to visit me today at the Craft Barn Extravaganza, it was a great pleasure to meet you all and also to chat with a couple of blogging friends who popped in. I had an absolutely wonderful and enjoyable day and am looking forward to tomorrow.

Back soon,
