7 May 2011

Hi all today I have a card to show you that I have made for the following challenges:
Well I certainly dusted off my stash with this one, I actually got one of my Sarah Kaye stamps out to ink up, this range of stamps was one of the first I ever bought when I started out in the the land of blog.  They were my favourites and I used them lots, then...nothing, they have been sat waiting patiently in my folder for the day that they would see sunlight again. I have seen my blogging buddy VICKY use them and she has encouraged me to get mine out and ink them up, thank you Vicky for the encouragement
I did get two out but I haven't finished the second one yet, I stamped the image in SU Choc Chip ink then used a Nestie to die cut her, I knew she would not fit so I had stamped a second image, coloured her with Copics cut her out by hand then mounted her onto the first.  The base bp is Basic Grey, the blue paper is from Bearlymine, I added a ribbon, flowers and sentiment.
I want to apologise for not visiting yesterday but after I finished colouring my hands were in rather a lot of pain and very swollen, they still are but not as bad as yesterday, I suppose that is old age creeping up on me fast, lol.
I will see you later so take care and I hope you like my card.
