A little bit ambitious!!! and tagged



I received some lovely old PB stamps from Dickie yesterday and one was this beautiful English country cottage I decided last night to try and make my first scene with this lovely stamp, I also used the carefree sugar nellie.
This has taken me ages to colour and I am not to sure about it but I have made it into a card to send to a colleague at work who is recovering from an operation.

The papers are some I was sent in a RAK over a year ago so I don' know what they are and the flowers were also in the same RAK which I have teamed up with the retro punch and some spacers.



I have been tagged by Natalie you need to show the 4th photo in the 4th folder on your computer... this photo was taken in the summer of 2003 and this is my darling Meg who sadly died in August 2006. She would have been nearly 10 in this photo and was still like a puppy at that time.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

This is beautiful and you have done a great job with the scene, your friend will love it. I received an old PB stamp for christmas - it is a teapot full of flowers - and although it isn't my usual thing, I think it is so pretty when it is coloured. I'm going to have a look on ebay for some of the earlier PB stamps now to see what I can find!
