By chance...

So many of my creations happen by accident or just purely by chance. That's exactly what happened yesterday in my craft room.


I had created the first layer on white card and accidently laid the piece of white card on top of a narrow strip of black card that just happened to be on my worktop, and hey presto an overlap layer was born. I'm not saying I invented this of course but it probably would not have occured to me unless I had done it accidentally.


I've used my lovely Prima flourish bracket stamp once again, I knew I hadn't finished with it yet. Simply stamped in 3 colourways with matching pearl brads.

Sadly I don't know what this Prima stamp set is called. I've tried to find it on the internet but to no avail. That's the trouble when I buy new stamps and rip off the packaging in my haste to use them as I end up inadvertantly throwing the packaging away.

Well as ever thank you for stopping by!

gorgeous cards - really elegant as usual. Always have clean lines and classy looking.

I have the flourish and medallion like stamps from Anna Griffin and can imagine they would create a similar effect. When I see your stunning cards, I always think that I clearly over-complicate cards. I'd love mine to turn out as stunning as yours... well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em - so I think a bit of 'casing' will be going on here lol.

Lovely as usual Sarita.

Bonjour Sarita,
Je suis toujours subjugué par tes créations. Sobriété et élégance sont les maitres mots pour ton travail. Je me suis permis de faire une carte semblable à celle-çi pour la fête des Mères, destinée à ma maman. Je t'invite à la voir sur mon blog où je te rends l'hommage qui t'est dû.
Amitiés françaises.


Hello Sarita,
I am always overwhelmed by your creations. Simplicity and elegance are the keywords for your work. I allowed myself to make a map like this for Mother's Day, for my mom. I invite you to see my blog where I give you the tribute you deserve.
French friendships.
