You may be intrigued by my post title today. The reason this is such a special stamp is that my good friend Lynsey used it on the first Christmas card she ever gave me a few years ago. So that's one reason it is so special but the reason I remember it is that I had never seen stamped images using Promarkers before. This was some time before I began blogging. It started my love affair with stamping, Promarkers, Sugar Nellie and Elisabeth Bell stamps. Previously I had been making cards with peeloffs (urgh), stickers etc. Unfortunately it was an image somebody gave to her so she couldn't stamp it for me. The stamp hasn't been available for many years but I often look on eBay for SN stamp and when I saw this just had to bid for it and I won it for just £3.50, brand new as well.
I have used some lovely new papers I treated myself to, Echo Park Winter Wishes. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, wooden embellie darkened with Di Vintage Photo and the tree is a Marianne die, another new purchase. This is the card I gave to Lynsey on Sunday.
