A Stitch in Time!

New Hero Arts stamps........
I'm a bit lost when it comes to card making (I do make and sell quite a few) because most of my stamps are a little on the odd side and most people don't want odd cards. So choosing 'nice' images puts me out of my comfort zone. Hero Arts usually have something.....

I liked the look of this set....



but still found them a little tricky to work with. they fit this weeks LTDO challenge which is ribbons and lace!
...and it seems like I'm starting to conquer my button phobia!

Your card is great Effie! The stamps are so right up my alley. I've been making a lot of cards lately to send as little thank-you's and I think of you everytime I do! I just ordered a couple of new sizzix embossing folders that I just love! So fun!
