Craft is something that belongs to you in a way that nothing else does. You may share your passion with someone else, and provide inspiration for each other, but at it's very core it is a private joy that feeds your soul. It is there for you on the sunny days, the rainy afternoons and in the middle of the night when your worries are keeping you awake. At the same time it can be restful, meditative and exciting.

I had to post number 15 in the black and white challenge larger than the others because I love the stamp so much. It is from Lili of the Valley, a U.K. company who have a gorgeous range of stamps and papers. These stamps look beautiful coloured with watercolours and the Christmas fairies in the range are really sweet. The card opens down the left hand side and all the pinks are a perfect match except for the heart shaped brads which I think tone well with the others =^..^=

Number 12 in the black and white challenge. I find green hard to work with and this olive doesn't have the zing of a bright green. I always like using corrugated card and I had exactly the right shade to tone with the olive ink. A very simple card of course: five layers and four brads. It's the first time that I have used a stamp that stamps a negative image. I like it a lot, and I like that it isn't meant to create a perfect image. I guess I would use this as a 'thank you' or a sympathy or a 'thinking of you' card. =^..^=
