MC Jan/18 - Easel Cacti - ECD Hugs & Kisses - Valentine's.html
I needed to make a couple calligraphed cards to submit for our Guild's next journal... So I pulled out my hand carved Cactus stamps and some hand made flowers I made a while back...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Sending Hugs Kisses" 3pce set, "Calligraphic Elements 2" 3pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE

I'm also using a sentiment  stamp from Quietfire Design ("Calligraphic Love Bits" 6pce set);  

Click on any card image to see the details and descriptions etc. Enjoy

Love the flowers on the cacti, especially 3D!! Calligraphy is so pretty and elegant and the variety in your stamps makes this card beautiful! I have always wanted to try calligraphy but never got up enough nerve. Maybe someday..... For now it's a great thing that there are stamps available for it!! Thanks very much for sharing your card with us at Tuesday Throwdown Challenes!
