Merci

I am SO happy.  Yesterday and today I made cards!!!  OK, I'm a bit rusty, and it's HARD getting my stitching to go straight... and as for my stamping... oh dear.
But, I created!!! And I feel so GOOD for it.  Must make the most of it, before my BIG bump makes it impossible to climb the loft ladder into my studio :)
So, I decided to play with Hero Arts and Basic Grey's new Out of Print 'Carte Postale' stamp set.  I ADORE it.  One of my favourite things about it, the postage stamps do not have dollar or cent marks, making it suitable for all countries. :)  Yay!

The beautiful blue background paper is from the MLS Heartfelt range - Ella.  I love the soft doily look.  The scallops were cut from THIS 12 x 12 sheet from Bo Bunny's Vicki B line.  I finished the card with a Bo Bunny sticker and yummy vintage seam binding and twine from The Ribbon Girl.
I created a Twopeas Wish List with all the available products I used to make this card - click HERE to see them all together - not sure if this is of any use to anyone??
Have a happy weekend, see you again soon.
