Appley Dapply

Good morning - although it's a very wet and windy May morning here! So much for Spring! Can I just say here that this little blog is nearly two months old now and I've had so much fun with it - but a big thank you to everyone who has stopped by to have a look at my little creations and to those who have left comments or joined as followers. I'm still a novice at this blogging business, but I've been so thrilled by your support! Thank you!
A little card to share today that I made this week

This is with the very cute Appley Dapply stamp from the Beatrix Potter range from Crafters Companion. This is a fairly new range of clear stamps from them and I've only got a couple but have been very pleased with the stamping quality. 

I've coloured this with promarkers and prisma pencils and tried to keep the colours soft and pastel as they were in the original Beatrix Potter watercolours. Such a pretty image! 
The backing papers are Nitwit collections and the pearlised paper is from Crafters Companion. I added a strip punched with a Fiskars punch across the middle and added a lovely soft bow with some ribbon from Joanna Sheen and seam binding from Wild Orchid. Although simple, I think it works quite well, and I didn't want too many details on to detract from the main image. 
Hope you like it!

    1. Hi Caroline - yes, it's a very small world really! Yes, Lauren worked for Sandra for a couple of years before she went to Uni. A good excuse for me to keep popping in to see what's new!
