I've been mooching around on the net today and had a peek at tome of the Splitcoaststampers videos and Two peas in a bucket. In the US, there still appears to be a focus on samller cards, where we in the UK have been usng the bigger sizes. So today I decided to go small and made a 4" by 4" card. I also challenged myself to use scraps and freebies. This is the result. I am pleased with it as it's pretty but not too sickly, and once again I used my free do crafts papers (believe me i do have a room full of stash also)
I also have a CONFESSION: I gave in and ordered the Polka Doodles stamps and some of their lovely twine and pom pom ribbon. I am sure my fellow crafters will forgive me.
