Well I am still sticking to my resolution, not to buy any new craft stuff, the only thing  new on this card is the lilac card, and that is recycled from a gift box, everything else used, I have had for at least six months.

something a bit different

One of my new year resolutions is to use up  stash and only buy essentials, so this card is a bit different. I have used a die that I have only used once before, mainly because it's a b****r to get the card out of the die without tearing it, also used swiss dots folder, and I have a massive stash of flowers and ribbon, so used them. The lilac flowers are from wild orchid and the white ones are from the works, seemed strange not adding an image, but I do like it so may make more in different colours.

I am entering this card in the following challenge

Card for a little girl

Well my computer seems to be behaving itself, so here is another card, isn't the image cute, it's a free download from pink gem and can be found here the sentiment is also from there. The papers are printed from a MCS CD,  and the flowers are from wildorchidcrafts
