Two is Better than one....

especially when it comes to stamping!!!  We all know you cant just buy one stamp.....because one soon becomes lots lots lots lots

And its a lucky thing because this week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we want you to use more than one stamp on your creation.  Fantastic time to practise your masking skills, but if thats too scary a thought we dont mind how you use more than one just as long as you do!!!
And the prize this week is an amazing voucher from Simon Says Stamp worth $25 so you can add more to that stamp

and here is my craetion using not one, not two, but three CC Designs stamps.

Hansel, the field fence and the birdhouse are all available from bizzy Bec's.
As is the spellbinders labels 12 I used for the sentiment.
Sentiment Stamp is a SU one.
Ribbon is from my local cheap shop and the punch is Wrought iron by Martha Stewart.
Paper isa Ruby Rocket one but i have cut off the strip so not sure which one.
Copics is....OMG way too many to mention.  Just be assured it was LOTS!!!  LOL

Ok so off you go to dig out all those stamps and start stamping!!!!
