I made this card last night, really wanted to get back into doing some stamping and painting and also play with my goodies I bought on Tuesday.

The image is "Flower Girl" from the Sugar Nellie Stamps, from Grimsby Crafts, I have painted the image with distress inks and used to glitter. I also bought the Marianne frame from Grimsby Crafts and have used both sizes of it to create the boarder, and put some pearls around it. The backing Paper's and pearls were from my stash, I just had enough to do the card and make the flower. It is finished off with ribbon & bow which was on one of the gift packs I got for Christmas, and still plenty left to do some more.

Can I take this opportunity to wish Lynn who has bought Grimsby Crafts on Littlecoats Road every success with her new business. After chatting we realised we knew each other and had mutual friends from our other working lives. It was nice to catch up, and loving all the new stock you are getting in. It is well worth a visit.

Thank you for reading
