A Classic Beauty (Published in Take Ten)

Hello Everyone
I was thrilled (to say the very least!)  to receive a complimentary issue of Stampington & co’s Take Ten (Spring issue) especially as the cards were a feature.  Seven cards were included in the feature but as I want this scheduled post to be a short one I will only share one of the cards and explain a bit more of the feature in another post.
If you visit The Stampsmith Blog then you might possibly have seen the card there as I used it as a DT upload. Keeping on a Stampsmith note for the moment, remember, TSC is underway for April. If you click the link on my sidebar it will take you to TSC where you can read all the entry details and details of the prize available.
Beautiful Portia is from The Stampsmith’s Cleopatra and Friends plate.DIGITAL CAMERAUnusually there is only one photograph, no detailed photographs. The reason, I did not take any at the time of photographing the card prior to submitting and as I never request for submissions to be returned, this is it, one photograph but it is clear enough for you to see the details.
It is possible at the time of this post being published that I have been very quiet and you’ve not seen me visit your Blogs. If that is the case, then hopefully over the weekend I will manage to catch-up with you.
My next scheduled post is for Sunday, how quickly those 7 days pass and once again it will be time for a That’s Crafty post. In the meantime, have a lovely weekend and know that your visits are always appreciated, even moreso when I am absent from blogland.

    Good for you, Lynne…so happy to hear about all your publications.. Hope to hear more. This card is lovely..I like your soft colors…so feminine and calming. I know I must have said that another time, but I certainly crave calm and peace lately, so I am attracted to things that exude that.

    Blessings for a pleasant weekend,
    Marianne xo

    Wow, all that work and so beautiful – I’d ask for them back (or do they get given to a charity to sell?)
