Hello everyone

Today I can finally show this card I made for my Mum using one of my favourite stamps.  I'd wanted this stamp for ages and the other week checked my lottery ticket and couldn't believe I had 3 numbers!  So I instantly decided to treat myself to this stamp and ordered it straight away.   Then when I went to claim my prize I realised I'd checked the numbers against the wrong week, so no win!   Never mind, the bonus was a new stamp in my collection (happy days!)

Items used:

Stamp: Penny Black
Sentiment stamps: LOTV tags
Colouring: ProMarkers
Papers: BoBunny Alora Collection
Dies: Spellbinders Edgeabilities and Marianne Creatables
Lace: Crafty Ribbons
Flowers: LOTV shop in Leeds
Pearl: stash

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge - Red
Papertake Weekly - Lovely Layers

I'd also like to enter this in Brenda's 5th Blogaversary draw (Congratulations) - Favourite items (Penny Black stamp and of course ProMarkers)

Thanks for popping by, enjoy the weekend.
