You go girl!!! ...

I have been itching to show you this card for nearly 2 weeks, I made a couple of samples up for Kerry for Stitches of the new BFF release, I said I wanted to make more and she sent me a new image to play with!! Oh what fun I had with this little beauty!! 
I decided to go bold, and in your face with bright colours, so chose red and blue ... I even made my own pompom from bakers twine! (first time I have made one!!) 


I wanted to force myself to not use any designer papers, but to dig out embossing folders ... I think it worked ... what do you think? 


Simple, basic, bold and beautiful!! The punch along the bottom is an EK Success one.

So there you have it ... one of the new BFF stamps from Ladybug Crafts Ink. 

Kerry has a special offer on at the minute ... 

The stamps will retail for £6.99 but the pre-order special will be £5.99 until March 8th, and there are 4 lovely images to choose from!

Brilliant, love the pom pom; cannot wait to have this image in my hands and ink it up (I have such a difficult time with the ink from my digital images smearing) so I haven't been able to really color her up and play around!

Love what you've done - great bright, bold colors!!
