Friendship plate from Innovative Stamp Creations

I had a birthday card and wrapping paper to sort out today for a friends birthday so I thought I would test out some of the new stamps we have recently taken delivery of.
These are made using the Friendship plate from Innovative Stamp Creations.

The face is stamped onto Stampbord and coloured with chalkes and marvy pens.

Face, butterfly and flower images from the plate are stamped randomly over a large piece of white paper (then coloured with chalks and marvy pens and touches of glitter glue added to flowers and butterfly.)

I've been tagged by Jaqi :-) - so here goes......

1.What was I doing 10 years ago?

Just bought my own house (after getting divorced) and working as an office administrator for a car light manufacturer.

2.Name 5 things on todays 'to do' list:

Get all todays orders packed and sent (done)
Buy Jake's new school uniform for September (done)
Make card and wrapping paper for friends birthday (done)
Sort and tidy shelves (done)
Update blog (done LOL)

3.Snacks I enjoy:

Breakfast bars, sultanas and chocolate..ahem!

4.Things I would do if I was a millionaire:

Buy a huge house and have several rooms kitted out as craft rooms - having loads of space to organise all my stash and stamps would be bliss....

5.Places I have lived:

Karen - these are stunning pieces of work! That stamp always amazes me actually as it looks so very much like my half sister!!! I've even told her someone has made a stamp of her!
