1 Stamp, 3 Simple Cards...........

Evening everyone, and welcome to my new followers....only 10 to go before reaching 200, whoohoo!
Thanks so much, to all those who pop back on a regular basis to checkout what I've been doing and thanks too for all the amazing comments you leave.....blogging wouldn't be half as much fun without them!

This week I've made 68 'stock' cards,  lots of repetition, but everyone of them different ;)  It's my last big craft fair tomorrow, and I'm taking over 300 cards ;)
The cards I'm showing tonight were made with my favourite stamp of the last 4 years......I bought it off Ebay, along with my trusty old  wooden scoreboard, and together they've been the best craft purchases I've ever made, for a total of less than £5!    A few 'jewels' and a bit of Glamourdust and da-da, done!
I didn't want traditional colours for these cards, as I love the shocking pink and black together on crisp white card......what do you think??

 The sentiments are from a set of magazine freebies ;)

The Glamourdust appears on almost every Christmas's compulsory! haha

Hope you've enjoyed looking at these very, very simple cards.....although I love getting messy with inks etc, I still revert back to 'Clean and Simple' on a regular basis. 
I'll be back on Sunday, in the meantime, have a great weekend,
Barbara xx
