In an English Country Gar-den...



(please click for a more detailed image)




What a daintly little lady tip toeing through the roses in her English Country Garden. OK OK maybe not doing the tippy toes thing, probably stomping through the bushes and eating most of them, but I love her all the same lol

Marci is one of my favourite Stampotique girls - probably because of her short stature lol (us shorties must stick together lol) and I actually have my hair plaited nowadays too.




These two cards are very simple makes as you can no doubt see, take minutes to create. Take a pre printed paper tag, stamp Marci onto it. Attach tag to folded card stock and glue flower/ribbon in place. Stamp Marci again onto white cardstock- colour, cut out body, head and shoes and stick in place. Stamp text.

All done and ready to go!

Marci and words are by Stampotique Originals in the USA.
For those Brits amongst you that are a bit scared to order from abroad, the Stampotique range are also available from Happy Daze here in the UK, along with the flower embellishments.
