So Very Grateful you're back!

I've thoroughly enjoyed show-casing Stampin' Up's So Very Grateful stamp set this week - what a gorgeous stamp set it is! Here's another way of using it for a pretty vintage look:

Three clusters of flowers were stamped on the white panel and coloured with markers in different colours from the Subtles family. It reminds me of pretty chintz fabric or vintage china - what do you think?  I pierced a frame around the edge of the panel before attaching it to the Pool Party core'dinations card base.

The sentiment was computer-generated especially for the recipient, the lovely Sarn from Stampin' With Pleasure - I made the card to welcome her very warmly back to my team!

but if you have any queries, or prefer to speak to me, I'm always happy to help.

One day, when I become fabulously wealthy (through some mysterious mechanism!) I will live in an enormous house with display cabinets full of beautiful vintage china, like this...

... only the china will be beautiful floral patterns like this:

The house will have a large craft room too, a bit like this:

One half will be given over to all my wonderful stamping stash while the other half will be a sewing area. I will have learned to sew by then and will design all my own clothes which I'll make up using wonderful vintage fabrics...


That was the sound of me coming back down to earth!

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you next week,


  1. Your card is absolutely gorgeous - so fresh and spring like! And I love your new home :)

  2. What a lovely way to welcome someone back, just gorgeous!

    When I saw the photo of the lovely china teacups I recognised the front one with the yellow/gold roses - it was one my grandma had and now I have it!!! And as for that craft room - WOW!!! Can I have one of those too??? I'll add it to my list of requirements for my 'dream house' .

  3. Hi Vicky... this post made me chuckle... dreams, which become nightmares when I think of the money it would all take!! plus I don't do the lottery :) are what keep me going!
    The card is very pretty, the recipient will be delighted!
