Positively Pampered

Today has been a lovely day, it started off sunny, then went very wet, but now it's lovely. So lovely in fact that Alan went to football training & I stayed out the hour & walked around Cuminestown, a neighbouring village. It was then back for lasagne for tea and to finish off this card before The Apprentice.

Now this is the first time I've used this lovely stamp, sent to me by Laurie - isn't she lovely! (That's Laurie, as well as the girl on the stamp!)

I have to say, I'm always a bit apprehensive about colouring LOTV stamps, I don't always find them that easy to do however on this occasion I'm delighted with the end result! She's coupled with lovely MME Six by Six papers and I also used my super new flower die called Prima Donna available here from Dies to Die For. Finally with a dash of fairy dust, (Stickles) & some glaze, I was done!
