I told you I'd be ready in 5 minutes, stop calling me every half hour!

I'm still broke!
And that means no new stash for me - sob**
But, I'm kinda having fun rummaging through all my old stamps
and seeing if I can make use of them.

Here's a stamp that's never been inked up.
I could just never picture it on a card before, but I gave it a go for the MUSE challenge.


I followed the general layout of Vicki's Muse card, but went for pinks with the green, instead of her reds.

Supplies.
Stamp - Kanban Lady, coloured with Copics.
Sent stamp - part Kanban with 'Birthday' from Clearly Besotted, Make A Wish
Striped Ribbon. Sequin and Pearls

Great image Caroline and a beautiful card! Love the colours you used too - fresh and zingy. I think it's good to go through our little stockpiles and have a break from spending!

Wahoo, Len sends compliments! I cooked the pork with pomegranate salad last night - absolutely gorgeous!! One to make again for sure, yum, yum - thanks for the recipe.
