We have had our house on the market for about a year now, but the company we were with didn't really reach the local market at all, so about 2 weeks ago we went with another company. Since then we have had lots of viewings and so far, one offer. It is not a firm offer as yet and so now we wait. There are also other things going on around here too that involve a bit of waiting, and patience, so it is an interesting time right now. Sometimes to keep me from sitting on top of the telephone I go make a few cards. Here's one I made yesterday....

I have used one of the lovely Rudbeckia clear stamps from Tonic's Pick of the Bunch range. I have stamped it twice and layered it up with foam pads for a 3d decoupage look. The centre of the flower I blobbed some tacky glue on and used these little microbeads I've had in my stash for ages. I never really knew quite what to do with them, but I think they are absolutely perfect for the centre of a flower don't you? The textured card strip along the centre is done with the Swiss Dots embossing folder that came with my new Cuttlebug.

I have created a couple of digistamps for you to use in your cards

Here they are....

...just right click to save them to your computer and you can use them in your favourite Desktop Publishing software. They are in PNG format. 

Enjoy!  And let me know if you used them, I'd love to see your cards.
