Hi,hope you all had a great weekend. We had a fun few days away. Today is my 100th post and 5 months since I started blogging! I was very nervous about it,who would want to see what little ole me created? I am so glad that I did enter this wonderful blog world as I have made some lovely friends and found lots of inspiration from many amazing people. Thanks for joining my journey.

School hols mean I have limited craft time and whilst my son was at cricket academy this morning I decided to make another stamped card. Although I use my cricut plenty,rubber stamping is what brought me to papercrafting.

I've called her Duckie.(My Mum's idea!). She is another Penny Black stamp from Fun in the Sun and probably has her own official name but I was on the phone to my Mum and told her I was just posting my duck girl card. She thought duck girl was a terrible title and that she should be Duckie but not spelt correctly! So Mum,Duckie just for you.

A side view to try to show the dimension.

Card Recipe
