Fancy Feathers

I've been trying to get some stamping done in the evenings after the children are in bed but it's just too humid so I'm afraid the results aren't great....

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Fancy Feathers'

Shortly after making this card, I turned over my entire sequin collection to Jasmine....big mistake.  Calling it 'fairy dust', she set about sprinkling sequins in every single room in the house!!!!

The children have their uniform fitting at the school tailor shop this afternoon, won't be much fun in this heat - wish me luck!

Just popping by to say thanks. I placed an order yesterday and my stamps and dies dropped through the letter box 10 minutes ago. Awesome! I am thrilled with them.
Good luck at the uniform shop - don't envy you that :-)

Hey Stephanie - if this is your idea of "not great" well..............! Beautiful card and those sequins really make the peacock feathers pop. Big mistake handing over all your sequins to Jasmine - you'll still be finding them at Christmas! lol
