A stamp free zone.

Why do I always feel like I'm cheating if I haven't stamped some part of a card when I create it? I really don't know why because you still have to spend ages thinking about the composition and the colours, not to mention quite a bit of eye boggling time cutting out some beautiful decoupage.

Anyway, I think I have often mentioned before tat, sometimes, there are days that I want to craft but not necessarily use the concentration that colouring requires - particularly after a tough day at work. Not to mention that all my CDs, which I buy predominantly for the papers, have some absolutely gorgeous images on them and this is just a perfect example of  that.

All of this card, including the bow is made from  my Barkley Christmas CD and, even though we are way past Christmas now, looking at that lovely image still makes me go all gooey inside!

Anyhow, I really hope you like my stamp free offering today and thank you for visiting. I really appreciate it as I haven't been the best of bloggers lately!

Hope to see you back here again soon.
