A new idea!

I mentioned on Twitter yesterday that a new idea had popped into my head. Want to see?


Postage stamp Christmas tree cards!




What do you think? I'm trying to expand my range but keep everything upcycled/recycled. This one has a couple of wonky stamps - I was in a rush to make it as I was excited about it turning out exactly as I had it in my head! I'm also going to experiment with different shapes and colours of trees. Let me know what you think!

Thank you cards, even. We have a TV, radio and a toy singing dog on in the living room and I am finding it slightly distracting...

O I really like them! It takes me back to my childhood when my Dad used to fill the kitchen with Pyrex bowls, soaking the paper off stamps. Thank you for reminding me of that memory.
