Hello there,

I hope that you're all well and happy.

Before I start this post, I'd just like to say thank you to all of you for the very kind comments that I received on my last, and on my previous posts, they're very much appreciated.  I would also like to say 'Hello' to my new followers and thank you for joining me on my crafting journey.

I received some new stamps from Chocolate Baroque on this morning and I've been having a play with them.  I had two vouchers to use and as soon as I saw the Serenity and Tranquillity stamp sets, I knew they were the ones for me. Here's my card:

I'm happy with the result, other than the Water Lilies which I think needed to be paler but every day's a learning day and I'll try a lighter colour next time.

I'd like to say a big thank you to Lesley Wharton and her team for despatching my order so promptly. The service from start to finish was exemplary and it took just two days to arrive with me, so I was thrilled this morning when the post arrived as I was able to get stamping right away.

Take care and I'll be back with you all soon x

I might be just a tad biased but love the stamps you selected to make this super card Sandra. The sky gives a very calm feel to the whole card and that peaceful image, one might say Good Karma abounds.

Like Brenda, I might be a tad biased too. Chocolate Baroque stamps are my favourites and I love what you've made with this set. A great feeling of calmness with this gorgeous card.
