Hello sweet peeps,

I went to make cards with the kids in Aleeza's class and they sure had fun. They just seemed so absorbed in making cards and sticking as much material as possible on the card as they could. I spent most of the time trying to take care of my stamp pads from being left open and drying out but it was all well worth it.

Here is my card to show you today made with my clear stamp from Hobby Craft bought this summer from London. And you know what happened to the sentiment with it? As I was trying to peel it off the acetate, it split into two. However I did not give up, I thought I would still be able to use it - somehow. But it was not meant to be and as I was trying to be as gentle as I could, it came apart into another piece so I had three parts lying on my table and all I could do was to dump it in the dust bin. And the cat stamp refused to come off the acetate layer but this time I did not resist that. Instead I stuck it along with the acetate layer on an acrylic block with double sided tape and managed to stamp it. I was rather impressed with what I did and gave myself a mental pat. The image has been coloured with my Prismas - how I love them so. I have mounted the white nestie on foam tape and layered it on to a scalloped nestie which has been recycled from a brochure cover. The paper on this card is from Kaiser I think and the ribbon is from my stash. I tried to copy the sentiment in my own hand writing.

I will enter this card in:

Happy Monday,

Very good for sticking it out Monica as you have created a wonderful card. Shame about the stamp though.
