A Basket of Roses

Good morning everyone - hope you are all well and those who are not, get better soon!

A quick post before I head off to work!

I don't know about you, but I have a huge basket of stamped and printed digi images that are crying out to be used.  You know what's it like, you stamp or print it out then change your mind and in the basket it goes, so I am determined to start whittling that basket down and also make an effort to use so many of my unused stamps too - I keep buying and never using!! 

So here is a card I made over the weekend using one from the basket!


Card Ingredients:

The Greeting Farm Stamp
Promarkers
Papermania Red Hot Capsule Collection Papers
Kanban Ribbon, Cardstock & Die Cut Greeting
Scallop Oval & Oval Nesties
Memorby Box Corner Bow Die
Pearls & Gems - NEC Stash
