Morning crafters!! Off to work today :0( so a quick post before I go.
 Another departure from the attempt at shabby chic
 (whatever that is!!). The stamp is by Kanban from a diverse set that I've had for years.  The papers are one of my favourites ( must get another pad before it's discontinued!)  and the roses are from WOC. It was actually nice to use them for a change, as I tend to avoid bulk because of the increasingly expensive postage. Oh...and I did bash up and ink the edges to make it look shabby!!

Today I am playing along at these challenges

Sweet Stampin' - Shabby chic
Pollycraft #3 - Ruby Red
The ABC Challenge - R for Roses are Red
House of Cards Month One - Classic & Elegant 

Right.... that's me for now, off to NHS land. Whatever you are doing have a good one.
See you soon xx
