Gorgeous girl in a cheongsam digi stamp!


Morning everyone and a happy Monday to you!  MilkCoffee Stamps are sponsoring the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and I was lucky enough to be their guest designer again!  You still have time to play the current challenge which is to take inspiration from the song lyrics of "Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce.  You can check it out at over at Crafty Cardmakers.

From the lyrics, I took inspiration from the line "there never seems to be enough time To do the things you want to do".  I used to ride a bike a lot as a child and have always wanted to take it up again - but never seem to have the time to go and buy one!  So, I chose this MilkCoffee stamp called Lady with Antique Bicycle as it was such a perfect fit, especially as I am part Chinese too!  





Saying that, I have never worn a cheongsam on a bike before, but I do own one similar to the one this lady is wearing!   I used papers from the My Mind's Eye Sweetest ThingHoney collection.  I am entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge for what's your fave and this is my fave MilkCoffee stamp (at the moment!).

I hope you can join in with the challenge with a chance to win your own MilkCoffee digi stamps!  I'll be back tomorrow with my By Lori Designs DT post!
