Quirky Well Put A Stamp On It!

Hi guys! Yes I know, I'm late again. (Shhh! Don't think anyone noticed!) No camera, no printer and no time!! Never mind, I'm here now to tell you all about The latest Quirky Crafts Challenge, which started on Sunday Evening.
It's Cazzy's turn to set the theme and she has come up with... Use a postage stamp: an image of a postage stamp, posties, postage stamp dies, punches,  letters etc etc... Looking at the other DT members fabulous cards and creations, basically, think anything  we use for writing...(It's wot people did before emails!)
Here's my card...added to the Challenge page late Monday night. I've used "Letters Home" and a few postcard images "Postcard set 2"
   from our Sponsors, Stitchy Bear.
I've 3D-ed her, just a little bit, so she pops out and gives a bit of a shallow around all those letters she's not writing! I coloured her with ProMarkers, then used some of the post cards (made them very small) along with some punched out stamp shapes to frame the image..I've left it blank at the moment. Might add a sentiment later. 
The paper's I've used are called, Prima Botanical Collection; a 6x6 freebie paper stack from Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine some time back. They also came with a stamp set too....wonder where it is!?!
I cut the white 8x8 card blank a little larger than the 6x6 papers so I didn't lose any of the background pictures; stamps, letters and other scribblings. Also punched out a few stamps shapes and some images from the papers too, just to fill up some space around the digi and also inside the card.
The inside, I've left with out any wording, I've just added more of the same papers. That's it for now... thank you for stopping by even when I've not here! If I find time I will definitely love to add this to some ...
