Pinky's 'go to' stamp


Good morning to you all, hope your Christmas plans are coming together, it's rather scary that it seems so long coming and now it's only day's away.

This months it's Pink's turn to share her 'go to' stamps and no surprise to us that it is a wedding image, she does that theme so well, so over to her......................

"My 'go to' stamp was going to have to be either baby or wedding related as I seem to make a lot of those cards. So I decided to go with wedding. I love this stamp from Stamping Bella called Uptown Couple Brett and Brenda.

I love the happy feel it has, I love the frills on her dress, and bonus it is very easy and quick to colour up and cut out!!


Thank you so much Pinky.
