Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!
I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, drawing, doodling and more. I also like to create digital stamps and sometimes offer vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom and a grandmother of 8 adorable grandkids whom I love to make things for.

Card and Background Freebie
We went to Penticton the other day and also popped over to Kelowna to visit one of the Scrapbooking stores in the area since we don't have a store locally. I wanted some Distress ink refills so I could do some cards with a nice inked background, which I found. I also found a nice large stamp, and a few other little things. It's always a good day when I can go scrapbook shopping!! ;))
Here's the card I made using the inks and the stamp. It's a nice simple card.
I also felt like doodling a bit, so I made a background while playing. The text is an article from a Gardening magazine dated 1950. The flourish and flowers I put over top thinking it might make a nice background for a card.
It's a nice start to the front of a card. If you make something with it, I'd love to see it! It's fun to see what people do with them!
I'm working on a few other Sweet Peas which I'll be posting in the next few days, so check back soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
