AYLI - Stamps or Digis

Hello crafty friends I hope, wherever you are in the world, that the year is being kind to you so far.

It's Thursday so time for me to share my make for the new challenge at

It's STAMPS OR DIGIS this time and remember to explain why you have made your choice.

 I have rekindled my love affair with rubber/clear stamps this year and have had a great time trawling through my collection. My stamping platform has probably been one of my best crafty purchases ever. Unless I drop an ink pad (come on, you've all done it!!) 99.9% of the time I get a perfect clean impression.

My card was made using an older, super cute LOTV rubber stamp. I coloured with Promarkers and pencils and paper pieced the pooches napkin. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Make a Wish Stamp Set and I heat embossed it in black for a bit of impact. The stars (also from the same stamp set) were stamped in similar colours as the sentiment alone didn't quite "balance" the card, if you get my meaning.

So, that's me for today. I hope that you will come and support us.

See you Saturday xx

Such a cute image and one I'm not familiar with, just have to love those LOTV images. Sad to see a lot of their designs wiped off their site, got quite a shock when I saw them being used by a demonstrator for Penny Black on You Tube! So much for heavy snow, so far that is, just a VERY wet morning with the odd flake. :)
