I have talked about this before, I know, I know its a sign of old age to repeat yourself but I can't help myself but I find if I am to focus and get some crafting done I have to limit my choices....and I know I am privileged that I have the option of choice...the problem is that I have toooooo much of it and I can't make a decision and I spend hours looking, stroking, wondering, deciding, putting back and not doing anything

So I went to where my lovely Dp is located in my craft room, took out some scrapbooking paper that I had acquired earlier in the year that was to nice to use, I then headed over to all my stamps and randomly picked some packs of new stamps that have never been touched with ink....and said to myself ....USE THEM

and this is the result...............

The DP is from Tell Your Story and the collection is called Seeds, it is double sided cardstock and it is beautiful visually as well as to use. The base card is 5ins cream square card, I also used some forest green cardstock from Bazzill (this is lush, its textured on one side and smooth on the other). The dino and the sentiment are from Woodware - Dino Friends and are both stamped using as usual for me Graphite Black Brilliance ink. The Dino was stamped on some white cardstock, coloured using Copics, cut out and mounted onto some 3d foam. You may also be able to see that I have used one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders on the green piece that goes the width of the card to give some more dimension. The overall layout is from this weeks sketch challenge over on Splitcoastampers, you can check out the sketch and the wonderful cards here.

Over on the wonderful Arty Girlz Challenge blog this week the challenge is make a male/man card and I think my card qualifies! again another great place to check out for great cards and designs, you can find it here
