A little card....

Morning all...One of my fav lines of the past six months has to be the simple stories line called...Summer Fresh ...the colours are outstanding and beautiful together.

So after using most of it over the last few months,I am left with a few scraps...so I decided to make a quick card.


One of the things I love working with is stickers, especially if they are from the same line...but it is hard to move stickers around to find it's correct space...so this is what I do.

I keep a tub of talcum powder in my scrapbooking room.


 If you dust the backs of these it takes the sticky off...it works really quickly and quite sadly it makes all my stuff smell nice and reminds me of my son when he was little.


What if i change my mind? and decide not to use it? I keep a little temporary adhesive dot to add to the back so it can go back onto the sticker sheet.


I also love cards that have bits hanging off the edges...but these don't fit into a normal size envelope. So, if i am sending it in the post I pop it in a bigger envelope, but if I am handing my card to someone in person, i just wrap it up along with the gift.
