Quick Card with Watercolour Wash and Wood Words #stampinup

Stampin' Up! Wood Words 2017 2018 Mitosu Crafts Order Stampinup Online Shop Uk 1

Hi Everyone

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week has started off well. It's been quite hot in our flat due to the sunny weather we've been having in the UK. We've had all windows and doors open with 3 fans going to keep us cool and our 3 cats! Minnie, Tommy and Sukie are indoor cats but they are well behaved when the door is open...with supervision of course. 

If you follow our Instagram, you may have seen the photo of all 3 of them just lying by our front door. They tend to run inside when they hear vehicles passing by the main road right opposite the flat which is why we decided to keep them indoors. Tommy and Sukie did ran out briefly then luckily went straight back in! We've only started using Instagram but if you would like to see more photos of our cats and crafts, you can follow HERE.

Anyways, here is today's inspiration using the Wood Words stamp set. It's a quick and easy card for hot days you need your crafting fix but don't want to be stuck indoors:

We have also started labelling the back of our cards with the stamp we ordered from Vistaprint. We leave our handmade cards at Chineham Church to sell, where we run our Card Making and Papercraft Class. Most proceeds we donate to the church and the rest goes towards replenishing our stash so we can make more :) On top of our new self-inking stamp, we re-designed and ordered our business cards from Vistaprint, it's great to have our logo on both! If you sell your own crafts or need to renew your business cards, check out Vistaprint HERE


Thanks again for stopping by. Until next time, BYEEEE!
