Hello friends I hope you are all keeping well? I really don't know where the time goes! I've been so busy with work recently that I've not had a lot of time to myself. Anyway I did find time to make this card for my buddy Leigh Jones aka Charity Crafter, it was her birthday last week.

This stamp has got to be one of my favourites of all time and I was so pleased that Elisabeth Bell decided to license it to Elphine House after she withdrew her stamps from Sugar Nellie. I purchased the stamp from Elphine House which cost appx £10 inc postage, which was a lot cheaper than what the stamp was going for on Ebay!

So on to the card.........

Elisabeth Bell stamp 'Daisy'
coloured with Promarkers
Papers are Wild Rose Studio
Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts
Marianne Designs Die
Xcut Butterfly Punch
Cuddly Buddly Sentiment Stamp
Ribbons, gems, pearls and stick pin all from stash

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Elphine House - 'Rain or Shine' I've chosen shine as this a lovely spring card
Make it Monday - No. 82 - Always Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - No. 209 - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Anything Goes

I hope you all like my little creation, thank you for looking and any comments you leave are always lovely to read. I'm on holiday from Wednesday so after I get back from my trip to Stoke on Trent I'm going to be on a mission to visit all my friends blogs and get some serious card making in.

Have a great week,
Hugs Debbie x
