BSS IDEA- The Nutcracker


Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea

Hello friends, another week has passed, somehow they seem
to be passing by very quickly.  I enjoyed the cooler temps
and lower humidity and finally got out in the yard and 
did some much needed weeding around the pond!
I also power washed one side of the house, amazing
what a drop in temps can do for your ambition.

This week's card



Stamp - The Nutcracker - Woodware (FR5398)
 Set includes four sentiments also.
White slimline card (perfect for this image)
Striped embossing folder
Gold, blue and red Card stock
Stars are Large-Spellbinders, small a punch
Colored with Copics

This wonderful stamp is from Woodware.  I love 
this company and have a couple more of their
stamps I will be showing you in coming weeks
that I got on my last visit to Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.

That's it for me this week.  

Have a good week
Be safe.
Visit your local stamp store, it is
loaded from wall to wall with
stamping goodness!!!!!!!!!!!

Di's Bio.

have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking a few years ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.  I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our generous sponsors
 for their continued support.
