    Use spots or stripes

    Hi friends Its November already and cold and windy here in Scotland. So more reasons to stay in and create! Ha. As if I need an excuse.

I added some striped paper with the beautiful sweet peas by Altenew, gold heat embossed and water coloured with Mijello Mission gold paints. We are sponsored this month and there is a prize! by Top Flight Stamps whose store sells a variety of stamps by companies such as Hero Arts and Crafters Companion as well as some smaller companies.
