The Perfect Ink....

....doesn't exist!!!! :(

I recently went on a mission to find the perfect ink, one that comes in a good range of colours, doesn't stain clear stamps and gives a perfect impression, picking up detail each and every time!

I justified the expense by telling myself that stamping is my job now but it still stung, a lot.  Being a thrifty crafter, the plan was to keep the brand that did it all and sell the others on ebay so it pains me to conclude that there isn't a do it all ink pad, guess I'll have to keep them all ;)

Just A Note

With the new release being the busiest to date (many thanks!), glorious sunshine and Andy Murray winning Wimbledon, the weekend was absolutely delightful!

Here are a few note cards I made a little while back and forgot to share....

Stamps - Butterfly Wishes / Dies Butterfly Wishes Die Collection / Ink - Papertrey Ink / Other - Papertrey Ink Impression Plate; Small Pearls

The children are on summer break and I'm thoroughly enjoying their company.  We're not going away but we do have lots of day trips and weekend breaks planned so it will be quiet here on the blog.

I will be back on Wednesday with the next Clearly Besotted Challenge and would love for you to join me then, have a great weekend everyone :)
