Handbags at Dawn at Woodware

Evening Everyone.
The week just wouldn't be the same if I didn't enter something in to the challenge over at Woodware.
The challenge this week as been 'Handbags at Dawn', and given that it will probably be nearly dawn by the time you read this it seems quite appropriate.
Given the lateness of the hour and the fact that the challenge has nearly ended I decided to look through my rather large stash of cards that I have already completed to see if there was anything that I would be able to use. 
The only piece of art work that I could find that had used a stamp sold by Woodware was actually a gift tag that I made some years ago as part of an article for either Cardmaking and Papercraft or Quick Cards Made Easy. As you know I don't really do tags so that is why it has never been sent.
I am pretty sure that the Hat, bag and shoe stamp is by Stampendous, but I am sure that someone will tell me if I have got it wrong lol.
I have remounted the coloured image and vellum background onto a piece of paper from the GCD paper pack Planes and Trains. The little retro flowers that have been added are peel-offs.
I had a lovely class today at Davina's. It was very full which was wonderful. In fact we actually had a couple of people that we weren't expecting. We managed to fit them in but we must remember to get people to confirm their booking in advance or we might have to have standing room only, not easy when you are crafting you will agree.
I was a very good girl and finished this card off this evening after I had put all my workshop equipment away. What a creep I can hear you all shouting. I just wanted to use up all the bits, and I do so love this stamp.

By the way I thought that you might like to see what I bought with my prize money for winning the December Sketch challenge.
I have had my eye on this stamp set for a while now. In fact I could have done with it last week when I had a 40th birthday card to make for a friend. I know it was designed for Wedding Anniversaries but it will work every bit as well for certain birthdays. Actually I have a 50th Birthday card to make next week so I can see it will get used straight away.
Thank You Woodware.

  1. Love the colours in your card for the challenges and the card from the class is beautiful, glad you had a good day.

  2. Great card and the centre piece tag is gorgeous such vibrant colours, love the background too. Looks like you had a great crafty day and your project is stunning, you certainly know how to use colours. !


  3. I think that they are Stampendous too! From a wooden set, but I can't find it. Tags are just card toppers in progress! I like the set that you have picked as your prize. Thank you for playing.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message, it is always greatly appreciated. I will try and get back to you as soon as possible if you have a query
