Stamptacular Sunday - Scene It

Good afternoon,

The challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week is "Scene It".

Here is my scene made using Stampscape stamps.

I am sorry I haven't been around in blogland very much recently. I have been quite busy with one thing and another.

Yesterday I travelled to Peterborough to visit Sir Stampalot's new premises and to meet the lovely Brenda of Floral Fantasies who was demonstrating for the day. It was great to meet Brenda, who is the brains behind the Sir Stampalot Challenge which starts on April Fool's day. I am honoured to be on the DT and can't wait for the first challenge. I was also pleased to meet Janice, the lady behind Sir Stampalot who is kindly sponsoring the challenge.

I have to admit to a few items falling into my basket - I have never seen so many stamps under one roof. I was like a kid in a candy shop.

Brenda, this card is inspired by your brilliant demo. I included the moon (sun?) especially, next time I will try some mountains.

Hugs, Clare xx

What a beautiful scene Clare. You must have had a lovely time at Sir Stampalot. I'm not surprised you had to buy 1 or 2 things when you were faced with so many goodies lol!!

Looking forward to the new challenge blog. Not long now!

Absolutely stunningly beautiful, Clare! I love it! Did you make it with your new goodies? I would've gone myself, but its only about three weeks since I did and my hubby might've divorced me!!!

Hi Clare

Yesterday was made so special by your visit. It was wonderful to meet you and such a fabulous surprise.

Your card is stunning, I have no idea how you created that wonderful water effect but me thinks you should do the next demo.

This is absolutely gorgeous Clare! I wish I could have gone to Sir Stampalot's but had a family birthday celebration. I hope to make it next time especially if this is the sort of demo I can expect from the very talented Brenda.

The colours are perfect for the scene you have created.

Hi Clare

A really gorgeous card. I love your image and colours and how you have put them all together.

The paper pricking looks great in the corners too. Good idea!!

So pleased you had fun at Sir Stampalot. Isn't Brenda lovely and as you say .. .. so many stamps under one roof.

Unfortunately we had visitors for the weekend so were unable to visit but it would have been lovely to bump into you there.

Perhaps another time!!

Love Jules xx
