Green Thumb

It's a day late but I hope everyone had a great weekend! At the end of last week I popped down to Cornwall to catch up with a couple of old friends. Good times :)

On the way back home I stopped in Topsham, South Devon, to meet my parents for a birthday lunch for my mum. It's such a pretty little town, right on the estuary and full of gorgeous shops! I was very good this time, but in the antiques centre I did pick up a couple of very old cookery books (I have a 'thing' about cookery books!) and a vintage camera to add to my (small!) collection:

On Sunday I sat down to make my sample for our new Passion for Papertrey challenge which this time round is all about flowers. Looking through my Papertrey stamps I came across my Green Thumb set, which was one of the first PTI sets I ever bought - three years ago! I'm ashamed to say it's hasn't seen ink for a long time, so I had a good play and will be showing you a few cards made with it over the rest of the week!

Stamps - Green Thumb
Card - Stamper's Select White/True Black/Spring Moss
Ink - Summer Sunrise/Melon Berry/Orange Zest/Terracotta Tile/Spring Rain/Antique Linen Distress Ink

Thanks for stopping by today!
