Bio.
I 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 about 4yrs 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!

This is a large set of clear stamps, including
two sentiments, two birds, two butterflies, and
several leaves.
Paper - Dark Brown and cream card stock
Gold Mirror Paper
I stamped with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Brown ink
and embossed with clear Embossing powder.

BSS IDEA - Pocket fold card

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Happy 4th of July WEEK.  By that I mean the fire works started on Friday
in my neighborhood and will continue on to next Sunday night..  These
aren't kids, it an older man across the street.  Worse part is, our dog gets
so upset and distraught and we have a devil of a time with her.  So it's not 
our favorite time of the year,

This week's card is a fun fold card and the image is a hoot too!

no larger than 3 3/4 x 5 inches
Adhere glue 1/8 to 1/4 inches on each side to

Easy Peasy, and you can also use the pocket to

Hope you get a chance to make a card like this.  Will be a
