THE CRAFTER

Is that me then? Well it is sometimes but not this time although I did 'craft' the card. No, that's the name of this Stampotique image - the Crafter.
I just love Stampotique and wish I owned every single stamp, especially the new mermaid ones and the little cats and owls. I decided to have a play yesterday and today and enter a challenge which uses just the 3 colours on my card, but can I find the info again, can I heck. So I am entering it into the Stampotique Designers Challenge #30 which is recycle. Here is the full card.
The scraps of material are bits I had in my scrap box, the buttons have come from clothes which I've binned, the tissue paper was from a birthday present and the ribbon was saved from Xmas. I reckon that complies with the recycle theme.
Yippee and thanks to Gez 'cos 'tis where the 3 colour challenge is. Stampotique are sponsoring the Play Date Cafe challenge and I originally made this card to enter that. So here goes.

Love this card! I don't have any stampotique stamps, because I'm afraid it'll be like potato chips (can't just have one). So I just admire what others have made.

Love this card! Isn't being scrappy one of the funnest things? TFS!
