Know this.......U R #1

Evening All. Hope you've all had a good week and are ready to rock the weekend!! First of all, let me show you the card I want to share with you all tonight:

I've used one of the fabulous Simply Sassy images from Sugar Nellie - d'you know I've bought every one of these stamps on the day of their release but this is only about the 4th card I've made with them. I've got them all stamped out and some have been coloured but I've never liked a range of stamps as much as I like these and it might sound silly but I almost don't want to make a card with them unless I feel I can do it justice. Does that sound stupid??!! I've got to a stage now though where I've got quite a few ready in the pipeline now!! All the papers and die cuts/border are from October Afternoon 'Schoolhouse' and I went a bit crazy with the buttons, which I've had in my stash for ages, some of which I've tied little bows on with twine.
Tonight's card was one of those ones that I felt pretty happy with when I'd finished it and when I made it a few day's ago, I didn't actually make it for any challenges, but when I was looking around, it fits into Desert Island Crafts Challenge #3 - from the itinerary, I've matched it to: 1. Make it Square, 4. Hand coloured image (I actually used promarkers on this one for a change), 5. 2 or more Patterned Papers and 7. Twine. You have to match 3 or more. I'm also entering it into Papertake Weekly's 'Anything Goes' challenge.
I really do hope you like this card, I feel like there's 'more of me in it' than usual IYKWIM?!? I'd love to hear your comments as always! Enjoy the rest of your Friday night, I'm off to watch Criminal Minds. Kisses xx

  9. Hi sweetie fabulous card love the image the colours on this are gorgeous its a really nice balance. I know what you mean about stamps I have at least 30 sweet pea stamps un-inked still as you know they are my fave....its terrible how long we leave stamps for isn't it do you the worst thing I've barely used a stamp twice. I told my hubby that the first year of crafting is the worst as its the most expensive when you are starting off from scratch I have a month left to buy as much as I can rofl.....hope you are doing ok shug thanks so much for your lovely comment it put such a smile on my mush.
