Christmas Wreaths At Coffee And Cards Coffee and Cards returned this week. I had a fabulous summer holiday and it was so lovely to have this to look forward to on my return. I am so lucky to have some very lovely ladies who come along and it was great to see them, catch up and create some fab cards with them too. Is it too early for the C word?

Sunflower stamped candle and matching gift wrap with Painted Harvest
I am loving the Painted Harvest stamp set. Its a two step stamp which means that you can stamp two images on top of each other to get a more detailed look.

I've gone for traditional sunflower colours here and to get that I have used Crushed Curry ink on the larger stamp and Pumpkin Pie on the smaller flower layer. The centre of the sunflower is stamped in Crumb Cake ink. Have yo ... VIEW POST
