When is a flag is not a flag?


When is a flag not a flag? when it is a flag stamp of course did you know it has a multitude of other uses.
I recently treated myself to some stamps from my favourite craft shop Imagine That and set myself the task of using this set of stamps in as many different ways as I could. This is just some of the uses so far

Wedding Card





So my nephew finally got married yesterday and I can now I hope safely reveal the card I made.
I was inspired by a card on enchanted occassion blog I added another flower, some glitter and a bow  and embossed the word wedding. I also made a box with a window.This is the first totally white card I've made but it certainly won't be my last.

Finally the happy couple in question.

Good Luck

Hello Bloggers, thanks for sticking by me in my absence. It's been such a long while since I posted anything. This year has not been great for me health wise. For the last five weeks I have been on antibiotics to try to cure an acute sinus problem, which I pleased to say looks like it is finally going away. But all those antibiotics and the horrible side effects along with my other continuing problems meant I did not feel up to anything other than dragging myself in and out of bed.
This is a card a friend asked me to make for someone that is shortly going to live in Irleand so of course they wanted an Irish theme. They didn't specify if it was male or female so I kept it clean and simple. I hope this fits the bill.
This card is for the follwoing challenges.
