WooHoo ! I won the card competition at Happy Stampers

The theme we were given was photography, the card base had to be 6" x 6" using colour inks from sepia to latte We were being judged on stamping so the main images had to be stamped. I spent all day doing two cards to enter you are allowed to enter two. I used Tim Holtz artisty collection stamps

The card I won with was the second card with the film strip down the side of it I cut out all the little squares and added in cut out photos from the main image I used to look like photo negatives. I was so chuffed as I never expected to win the ccompetition as the level of entries to the competition are always very high

My  Winning stash ...


I took the last photo's so I could print it out to scrapbook my wonderful day at Happy stampers made even more special by winning the card competition  I purchased lots of new stash as well, and got to sit and watch lots of demos during the day. I did get rather badly banged in my back which was very painful at one stage (due to existing medical issues) and ended up sat with the first aid group having a drink and recovering (thank you to the nice lady who looked after me)

Happy stampers is always a wonderful show to go it it held in the Wirrel at a place called Port Sunlight, which was built for the workers of the soap factory. The houses now are all privately owned The garden surrounding port sunlight are delightful at any time of year but look there best in spring and summer when they are full of tulip bulbs in spring, and roses in summer. There is also a wonder garden center and museum and art gallery in the area.
