What's Your Wish?



Stampotique this week are asking what is your 'Wish for the New Year'? They say...

This time of the year we tend to look forward, what are our dreams, wishes, hopes and things we want to achieve for the new year. What do we wish and hope for our dear ones. I challenge you to show us your dreams, wishes and hopes in a stamped project.


I'm not asking for a lot, the pessimist that I am....just as long as everyone's ok.



The stamps I used are all Stampotique, which some of you may be a little suprised by as Stampotique are perhaps best known for their more gothic/quirky characters rather than photo images and quotes. Stampotique stock a huge range of stamps by artists that are all so very different from each other. Here I used a couple of images from Carol's Collection; I Feel Happy Inside and two of the three Keepsake Kids sitting on the Great Moon (from my collection).

I wish you all a happy 2012. If you get a moment before having to start back at work or the school run and housework, please get out your Stampotique stamps and play along with the Stampotique Challenge, we'd love to see what you come up with.

Don't forget, if you are short on sayings and words and don't own Stampotique words then just print or hand write your own sayings and sentences, cut up magazines or books, or leave wordless.

Lovely card, very sweet.

But are you really a pessimist, or are you just realistic???

ANYWAY, just saying, my favorite stamps at the moment are the Starbird and chick, so I'm a little bit "Oooh, oooh, oooh! It's Jo Capper-Sandon's blog!!!" right now!

:)
