Friends are important and so are family , luckily I married my best friend.
My hubby gave me money for Christmas , I spent it on guess.....yes ...stamps of course. The wonderful Sir Stampalot have a great sale , I ordered on the Friday and they arrived 8.15 next morning...fab or what!
Brenda at Stamping Sensation asked me to be a guest designer for the new year challenge "friendship". I was very lucky and won the star prize last month.
My card features 2 of the stamps I bought ,Art Impression "girlfriends" and a sentiment stamp. I've really fallen for this Ai range of stamps , so funny and great to colour. I've coloured mine with pro and copic markers. The lovely papers are Bird Song by first Edition . The flowers are from a set of stickers by craft (pound shop buy).I've added some stick ribbon in a vibrant pink, from hobby craft.

challenges entered.
