New stamp!!

I, like many crafters I am sure, have more stamps than I know what to do with! But when I spotted some cards made using the rather fabulous Dasher stamp, I just knew I had to have it.


Unfortunately my trawl around the internet did not immediately reveal where I could get it from – I looked in all sorts of online shops and blogs. Eventually I discovered that it was a Stampin’ Up stamp so I dashed to my catalogue, but it wasn’t in there!! Hmmmm, this was turning into a right palaver.

Well, what eventually happened was that I found a fab example of a card made using the Dasher stamp on Melissa’s blog – In Stamping Mode – and discovered that Melissa – alllll the way over in Texas was a SU person and after much discussion she agreed to to send me a Dasher stamp in exchange from some stamps from Elzybells! (and I am sure that she will eventually be showcasing her cards using the stamps).

Anyway, to cut a long story short, the Dasher stamp arrived the other day (thank you sooooo very much Melissa!) and today I used this weeks CPS sketch challenge to create a card with it – I am not keen on this card for some reason. (But as I have said before, we all have different tastes and so I am sure that someone will love this card!)
