So here is another Sugar Nellie stamp that was donated by my lovely friend Lorraine.

Columbine Flower Card

Hello Friends, apologies for being a bad blogger this week, I've been a bit poorly. I'm catching up with all your blogs and hopefully should get round to leaving comments later today.

I've made a card using a digi image called Columbine from A Passion for Stamps. This is something different for me, no pink in sight. I wanted a card that was simple looking but elegant at the same time, I hope I've managed that.
