Wednesday Stamper


I'm still on the text page and vellum craze. So I used those two things for my Wednesday Stamper challenge today to use purple and green. Since purple is one of my favorite colors I was surprised to see how little purple paper I have. My last trip to Archivers I looked for some nice purple patterned paper -- and came up empty!
I stamped my two little girls from PaperBag Studios on cream cardstock and then laid my purple and green vellum over that. The sentiment stamp is from PSX -- an oldie but goodie!
Since DH has the day off and has agreed to accompany me to a fabulous stamp store about an hour away, I'll have to check out all the other submissions when we return.

So beautiful, Louise. I love the look of the lavender and green vellum (never seen any!) and the overall effect.

Lucky you, going to a stamp store! Show us what you get.

I'd love to see this, but it's not showing up on your page, for some reason. All your other photos and posts are there, just not the photo that goes with this one--I can't figure it out, as this has happened on other blogs I'm visiting currently--some of the photos on a post here and there aren't showing up! Have you ever come across this?
