While I love stamping there are times when I don't have an appropriate stamp and I use a digital image. At the end of the day it's the outcome that's important so I don't beat myself up about it.

The image on this next card is a wood mounted B Line stamp (LF127E). It was in a goody bag that I bought from Linda Brown when she was closing down her shop recently. It probably isn't a stamp I would have been drawn to on the shelves but now I've used it I've warmed to her. She lends herself to black and white and luckily I had the papers and ribbon in my stash.
The butterfly easel card has to be my favourite of the templates that Sara at Cardmaking Paradise has published this year. It's so easy to make and can be dressed up or down, but whichever way it looks great.

I cannot believe that it's a year tomorrow since I started this blog. The year has gone faster than any I've known. Surely now I'm retired the days, weeks and months should seem endless. Well they did for the first couple of weeks and then everything gathered speed!
