What do you do when your DH is ill?

Buy new stamps!
I thought I would try some stamps other than flowers ;) This card uses a set called Say Charge by My Favourite Things and coloured in with SU water colour crayons and blending pens.

Another new big background stamp that I used in this pink card came from Unity Stamps - it's called Doily and I love it! It just called out to be cut up and raised up. I used the sentiment from another Unity set that I haven't had chance to play with much as yet. The cardstock is Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush by Papertrey Ink.

I couldn't resist getting a new flower stamp and as iris are among my most favourite flowers I had to have this Siberian Iris set from Flourishes. It stamps so beautifully and I spent a good few hours sitting with Paul and colouring it in with different combinations. This is one with a sentiment by Papertrey from the trusty Out on a Limb set.
