Fun challenge to-day. I always knew that all those handwriting classes in public school would pay off! Who needs sentiment stamps when you can write your own!! Good thing I kept my calligraphy pen! LOL! I love this stamp set and have been using it on almost every card I have made in the last while. I also have been digging out old ink pads instead of getting caught up in the 'latest colour' trends.

You were someone I expected would be able to produce beautiful lettering :D. I have (well, technically DH has) books and pens but I've never done anything with them. The soft floral images are lovely for Spring - you've even captured the shower that has just speckled my windows!!

Gorgeous card. Love the hand-written "hello". The flowers are beautiful. Love the hand-written frame and how it breaks for the foliage that crosses the line. Great colors! The gem is so pretty. Wonderful card. TFS

If my handwriting looked like yours, I would NEVER buy a sentiment stamp!! This is just lovely with the simple hand-drawn frame around the riot of blooms and the little pop of sparkle from your added gem.

WOW, your lettering is beautiful!! And good for you for using whatever ink pads you have around. I also think it's nice to repeatedly use a stamp set and not just the few times I often do. You have created a lovely card today. :>)
