Oodles of samples

Hi all, what a morning.  I was up most of the night drawing and designing.  I was inspired and on a roll so I just kept going while the going was good.  When it got to 5 I thought I really had to stop though.  I woke back up at 6.30 shivering so much my teeth were chattering, WTH that was all about I don't know.  Anyway I fell back to sleep and didn't wake up till 10.20 when Colin came down (forgot to say I'd curled up on my reclining chair to sleep not bed).  Damn, flip and blast (polite version, lol) I'd missed the first 20 mins of Barbara's (Clarity Stamps) show, so I missed most of the samples being shown.  I'm so mad at myself, I really love to see what all the other designers have done with the stamps, and I don't deny it's nice to see your stuff too and see how they look with new eyes.

Before I bombard you with all the Clarity samples I just want to show you a couple of cards that are in the May edition of Making Cards magazine.  I used Polka Doodles gorgeous house stamps and Kuretake's Art and Graphic twin tip pens and a Wink of Stella pens to add a touch of gentle twinkling, although it doesn't really show up in photos which is a shame as they really are very pretty.

Don't forget to check out the Polka Doodles challenge blog for some fantastic samples and inspiration by all the girls.  Also Nikky is on Create and Craft tonight at 7 and then again at 9am and 3pm (I think) tomorrow.
Now for the Clarity Stamps samples.  I hope you like them.

 Right that's all for now. I'm off to get some dressed and try and make myself look decent.
