Clara Loves Edgar - Visible Image Stamps

Hi and welcome to you today hope you have enjoyed the sunshine.
Today is my DT day for 
Arnt they a matched made in heaven!
As soon as the awesome talented duo behind 
Mark & Helen announced they were bringing the adorable Edgar a lady friend I was so excited and when she was revealed a few weeks ago I was so overjoyed as Clara is an exquisite companion for him.
Don't they make a great couple.
When I made this card it gave me a feeling of walking along a pier in the olden days.
Well I actually got the letter beads from a shop on Llandudno pier in North Wales next to a shop who is a 
Visible Image stockist called Pier Crafts and this bank holiday was Llandudno's extravaganza weekend which is all about Victoria times so when I was asked to help out this weekend at Pier Crafts I jumped at the chance.
 This is a lovely couple who where walking along Llandudno Prom on the weekend very early before all the tourist arrived and they reminded me totally of my new DT card.

A few pictures that I managed to capture of a wonderful weekend most of these were taken very early before the streets were filled with visitors. An hour later you couldnt see an inch of road or path it was packed .

I hope you will pop over to the Visible Image Website an take a peek at the truly amazing array of quality stamps just for you. please trust me when I say "you will be amazed" and left wanting more once you try them.

Other items used:
Wow embossing powders, Theresa Collins papers, Creative expressions ribbon & dazzler and letters from a local shop, this was coloured using copics.
