Afternoon all,

Nearly three o'clock and I have managed only one card today. I spent most of the morning checking out people's blogs...Bit of a time muncher that activity!

I found this old stamp of mine laying around and thought I would resurrect it for the day. It was one of my earlier purchases. I think one should have a closer look at stamps bought squillions of years ago and give them a little TLC and inking. Actually, tis not a bad idea coz the ink will condition the stamp and help it last quite a few more years yet!

Any Australian stamp makers out there...We need some good old Aussie slang. I had lots of ideas for wording for this card but in the end used a generic greeting. (Yes, I could have generated one on here...but I was in lazy mode!)

Lucky me...Off to dinner out tonight! No cooking...But better rest up if I am going to have a late one! Tis raining again...Well has really stopped?

That's a fun stamp. I really like your stitching on the card. No Aussie lingo suggestions but your card is cute.

What a great card! I especially like those corners with the brads. Wow, very nice.

Do you happen to know where I can get some Australian stamps, by the way??? Been wanting to scrapbook our trip to Australia but alas, no Aussie stamps in my stash!

This is a great masculine card. Such a very creative have the right idea of pulling out older stamps and conditioning them! Also reminds the husband you actually use all of your stash! :o) Which in turns means you can buy more, because you USE it (haha, tell me I don't know how to work around the man!)
