  1. I get so sick of plain rectangle cards, this is a great technique to play with.
    As for favourite stamp of the new releases, well... I already treated myself to a cracked crittur set 1 as (one of) my Christmas pressie to me, as well as the Just faces set and the grunge tree, so I'd be "favourite/wish-listing" the cracked critturs set 2, AND the grunge borders, AND the ATC faces set AND the ATC grunge set... hey, when getting stuff posted internationally, there's no point getting just 1 or 2, postage is out of proportion to the stamp cost!)... but the one I MUST have is the Franco face. (And some of the hamsas, which didn't get featured at all) Thanks all of you, for some light moments in a hectic fortnight.

  2. Oh my, these are to die for gorgeous. Wow. Love the beautiful flowers going over the edge and the lovely ripped layer. Fantastic. Pick a favourite! Yeah, right!! Haven't seen so many stamps I need in a long time! Like, really need. I thought it would be cat and bird, or maybe happy cat. He looks so plesed with himself. Then you showcased Megans christmas bird. What a sweetie in a hat! Then there's the grunge borders, the hamsa's, dragon crown, city scape.... Pick my favourite, uhhhh, OK Cat and Bird. By a whisker...... Hugz

  3. OK I have tried to write this 3 times and it keeps kicking me off before I finish... I am going to make this short and sweet! LOVE the rose stamps!!! WOW! Great card technique... I will have to try.. I was hooked the first day with the New Year Owl and Christmas Bird... Then there are the grunge borders and cracked birds!!! LOVE them all... so my favorite! Drum roll... it is tough!!! love the grunge backorders!

  4. Loving these cards, creat technique with the torn edge and the single rose going over the edge.

  5. Oh forgot to say, also love the Doodle Flowers on the side of the torn part of the card. Love all the NEW stamps!

  6. Certainly going to have ago at this card technique, will demo at Hobby Craft craft group!
