No challenges but postcards for special people x

Made this postcard for a special lady. I got the fabby postcard stamp and friends verse at The Craft Range in Hapton, Lancs - It is marked £10-90 but it had a whopping 70% off and begged me to take it home LOL (along with another santa stamp and a fabby Paris suitcase stamp). The flower stamp is one of Kay Carley designs from The stampman - such a lovely versatile set. Ive coloured it with Stampin up inks chocolate chip and pumpkin which I think have worked remarkably well. Cant remember who made the beautiful day stamp but thats a gorgeous one too. This is the reverse.
Heres another for a different friend this time using paper piecing for the flowers. Papers by My Minds Eye, letters stamps by papermania, ribbon from stash - again I have used Chocolate chip to ink the edges.

On Tuesday I went to see Suze Weinberg demonstrate at a shop in Lancashire. She was fabulous! Those of you not familiar with Suze she is the melt pot Queen -behind all the ranger melt pot products. I learned so much I just need a day to play not to have a go! I also succombed to some bargain basement stamps - a little passport stamp to go with the suitcase, some word stamps and a gorgeous Christmas stamp of an Angel 5 stamps for a fiver cant be bad! Im hoping my Pal Elaine will email pics she took of the demo so I can share them with you or you can visit Suze to see some . Im def a follower now! Suze gave away all her demo projects to her adoring fans and lucky me got one too but I dont want to share yet as its a gift for someone else who will appreciate it but I will show you soon x
