Can I keep this card?


Oh dear this is going to be a hard card to sell as I love it so much. Daisy is one of the first stamps I bought 7 or 8 years ago and I would never part with her. She is one of the stamps which started my love of Sugar Nellie stamps, a love you know I still have today. Added to that it is purple with several embellishments and it is all I need in a card.

Image - Sugar Nellie Daisy by Elisabeth Bell
Medium - Copics
Papers - very old Papermania capsule heather and aqua packs
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Other - metal embellishments, enamel dots and roses from stash.

Did you play along with Squirrel's penguin and snowman challenges last year? well she has a new challenge antiques roadshow. Yes use some of your oldest stash. What a great idea. I am trying to use up old papers some of the time rather than reaching for the new pads and as for inking up old stamps, what a joy to use them again.

Pretty card in lovely colours Marianne, but know what you mean about parting with it, I'm rather like that with some of my PB cards.

Hope you have a good Thursday and thanks for joining in at Allsorts and Stamping Sensations.

Hi daisy is one of my faces too. Had to keep my eyes peeled at the shop as she would sell out so fast. Lovely card and great papers. Was only saying to a friend about doing a few challenges with old stamps

If you love her so much, frame her and keep her. Funny how some cards make you say wow, even though you have just made it yourself. It is a very pretty card
