  6. Hi Melissa - this is one stamp set I do not own - waiting for a bargain to order it on line - LOL - nice creation and thanks for entering CSAYL challenge - come back again on Friday for a new challenges - we have weekly challenges and prizes! Enjoy your day!

  7. Hi Melissa, didn't realize that u had already submitted a card for SSS Challenge using this stamp. Thanks for all the comments u have left for my card. But I think your card has inspired me to create in yet another way. I love the Core'dinations cardstock u have used. It gives a rustic/real life effect. I love the paper piecing too. The colors co-ordinate very well. I love TH stamps too, esp blueprints. Yet to lay my hands on a few more. Thanks for your inspiration.
