Bella Italia

WS Italia

I have to admit the Wednesday Stamper theme had me stumped this week!

I have been racking my brain for most of the day trying to think up something Itallian with a lack of Itallian stamps ... plenty of Paris but almost none on Italy ... perhaps I should invest in some ... just in case :0))

Anyway while I chomped on pasta for my tea ... it came to me ... I suddenly remembered dear old Puccini's muse. I have had her for yonks and the poor old girl has been sat in a drawer for an absolute age! Well here she is in all her glory mounted in the colours of the Italian flag.

She is in fact a Hampton Art stamp and the little butterflies are Art Journey.

How wonderful to see the old gal again, and how spooky is this???? I was rummaging, as you do, and happened upon my version of the old gal...yes, the wonky one!! Anyway, I thought to myself that I had been neglecting her and guess what? I made an ATC using her :o0 Great minds think alike eh? oh and the other weird thing is that I am having pasta tonight! LOL Hugs hunny, loving what you made x
