Morning everyone, my title today pretty much sums up my trip to school this morning.
It's also the name of the stamp I used for my abc challenge, please check out my post below.

Today I share with you my dt card for our new Charisma Challenge

Black + White + 1

My inspiration came from the Charisma blog banner colours, black + white +pink, very appropriate don't you think hee hee

I also got the chance to ink up my new Tilda stamp. I was drawn to her because I love a good hug whether I am the giver or the receiver and they are perfect when words just fail us.

I would so love it if you could join us this week.
Pop over here to check out the challenge rules and for more inspiration from the dt team. It's wonderful to see how different crafters have different styles.

here's my little offering today

papers/gemstones- Papermania
sentiment-local card shop
tools- retro flower punch, woodware punch, nestabillities

  12. Hi, Clare! I just discovered your blog recently through Charisma Cardz and I'm dropping by to say hello and tell you how much I enjoy your work. I'm a big fan of Magnolia stamps and I noticed you use them frequently. I don't own any of them yet as I am currently unemployed but I admire them on many of the blogs I follow, yours being one among them. The pictures of your family are lovely too! I'll be visiting you again soon.
