A speedy post.
This tag came about as I was in need of something to scribble down a quick note but a card, as such wasn’t required. I literally only had a few moments to put a tag together.
The stamps I used are from Character Constructions French Laundry 11. This is a set I’ve had for years now and which I have fallen in love with all over again.
This beautiful stamp has the young woman holding paper dolls. I partially inked up only the paper dolls to provide a shabby background.
The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of vintage French receipt. I am terrible for not wanting to use vintage papers (other than French book text), trims or even trinkets and gifts from friends, I have this habit of wanting to “keep” them but this year all that is changing. I am making myself actually use those items which I deem as being precious to me, actually enjoying working with them. A flower motif cut from lace with a pearl embellishes her bodice.Simple!
I am trying to catch-up with organising blog posts, don’t know how or why I have fallen so far behind and I also need to do some catching-up with visits to your blogs. I always appreciate your visits, I really do.
