Picking apples


Firstly thank you for such lovely positive comments on my blog yesterday. I made this card for a friend whose Birthday was yesterday so I can now share it with you. I absolutely love the old Elisabeth Bell stamps which Sugar Nellie used to sell. In fact they were some of the first stamps I ever bought. I bought this one a while ago from somebody on Facebook as I never had her in my collection. They are such a delight to colour and as my friend shares my love of purple I was able to use my fave colour too.

I coloured her with Copics, papers are First Edition Butterfly kisses, lace and cheesecloth from stash, flowers from Wild Orchid.  I used MFT wonky stitched oval and stitched ric rac dies.  The ric rac die is a new one which I have wanted for ages but it was out of stock. I know I am going to be using that one a lot.

Aww, such a sweetie. Lissie Bell's images are still some of my absolute favourites! Sweet and enchanting. Missing Sugar Nellie, but so happy that Whimsy has taken up some of the Marina Fedotova range at least. Such beautiful imagery. Gorgeous card hun. LOVE that plaid paper and lovely colour combo. Hugs, Wends xoxo
