Just for You

Wow, have you noticed how fast time goes by at this time of year - I'm lucky if I get two minutes to myself at the moment!  Here's a very quick card I made last week but didn't get a chance to post.  When I saw these swallow dies in the Amuse Studio catalog I couldn't wait to make them mine - when they arrived I found I didn't know what to do with them.  I have made a deal with myself that I won't purchase any more stamps or dies until I have used (and published here) everything I already own - yes, I know - let's see how long that one lasts, especially when the new catalog comes out.  Still, I have a couple of months ....

Anyway, I digress, here is the card I eventually came up with:

This was the first time I have truly been happy with multi-generation stamping, I really like the way the leaves came out.  The swallows are the same colour as the card base - but because the central panel is raised it works.

Well, that's all I have for you today - I will try my hardest to get back to you at least once before Sunday's (Monday for some for you) post for the challenge blog.  See you soon, and happy stamping.
