Hint for today

Hello , welcome to my room . Hope that you manage to spend some time crafting today .
I have been packing craft bag for tomorrow's card morning . And creating a card using a hint , Fran passed onto me . Thank you Fran .
The rubber on which your stamp sets are  sent , weather or not  images  are pre cut or you have to cut out is recyclable! Did you know this?

This is the rubber with backing still in place and images removed . I left this backing on while I cut odd shapes from it . Then I removed the backing and placed shapes randomly over a spare clear block I had ...thanks again Fran.

I am sure with practice I could make a better background even a multi coloured one . In the meantime I used this block to create this background for this card.
See how one of the shapes I cut makes a perfect frame for the  sentiment. I stamped ' mosaic', I guess it could be called,  in Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White. This is layered then on Chocolate Chip card stock, and all then onto card base of Creamy Caramel.
 Bird on branch is from set Friends 24/7
Hope that you find this hint useful .
Thank you again for popping in .
Catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne
