Hi There

Good morning

I hope you all had a great weekend. I went to a friends 50th and lets just say lots of fun was had by all!
 You may remember me saying that I got 20 images free with a magazine in the summer. Well now most of the images are colored in, I have been playing with actually making them up into cards. I went to the Craft show in Manchester last weekend and was amazed by the beautiful sample on the Lili of the Valley stall. So much so that i ended up buying a few stamps. Ooops.
This card was made with a Lili of the Valley image, coloured with pormarkers. This was then die cut with my Nesties Labels 1, matted onto a coral pink cardstock. The pink background papers are from the DCWV Mariposa stack. Some DCWV metallic card with more Mariposa papers on, border punched with the Martha Stewart loops punch. Pink Prima Got Flowers and a cream and 2 pink roses. A bit of stickles here and there and a cute card. 

I think I am now finally getting over my fear of using my flowers, I didn't want to use them in case I ran out, but there are so many gorgeous ones available now, that I have to use them to make room for some new ones. Am I the only one who can now cut up paper and use flowers without breaking into a sweat??
