St Luke's Charity Challenge

I was reminded on my friend Anne's blog that I'd not yet made a card for the St Luke's Charity challenge which this month is 'Deck The Halls' so a Christmas card I guess.  When I saw Anne's mid month motivation card I was sure I had a similar stamp in my collection and once I dug it out I realised it was exactly the same (a very old wooden stamp by PSX which I've had forever).  I've made a quick card using it and also using up some seasonal papers from my stash from last Christmas - I really am trying to use things I already have in an effort to clear some space but I have to say using this small amount of paper hasn't made much difference to the heap!!  The stamp was coloured using Copic pens; background papers and greeting are from Papermania and a nice red ribbon finishes off the card.


  1. A beautiful card Val, a lovely stamp. It's amazing what you can make when using the leftover bits that find their way into a box. Reminds me I've got a box or 3 in the cupboard.

  2. This is a lovely card Val, it's amazing what you can come up with when yu try and use up left over bits although I agree one card doesn't make a big difference to the pile. I too have been trying to use up my old stash to make some space

    Love what you have done with yours - and every little helps.

    Your stamp and colouring are gorgeous.

  7. I'm sure that the scraps breed when we're not looking. Love the stamp & the way you've used it with the scrap elements. The red ribbon picks up nicely on the image's one too.
