Oldie but a Goldie

Yep, this is definitely an Oldie but a Goldie and she hasn't been inked up for quite a while, which is a shame because these Sara Kay stamps are still so cute.

The challenge at Oldie but a Goldie this week is Spring is in the Air, so thought this little gal with her picnic basket fits the bill!

I have made a Tent card, I like these cards and think they look good on display. I cut the oval with a plain & scalloped nestie, did think about adding pearls all the way round, but didn't have enough of the right shade. She's coloured with Promarkers and the flowers have been coloured as well. The papers are from an old Laura Ashley pack, so this card uses lots of 'oldies'.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges
ABC - Ovals
Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Fancy Folds
Pixie Cottage - Cute option
Do You Stack up - Anything Goes

Well thats it for tonight - its Thursday and my friend and craft buddy Diane is coming over -we pretend to craft and share goodies, but really we talk more than we make - must go and put the kettle on.

Thanks for looking and if you like what you see, please leave a comment and I'll come and visit you.

Hi Avril

A wonderful make.

Love your image and colour choices. A refreshing change from all the pink that is usually associated with cards featuring girls.

Hi Avril - I love these Sarah Kay images :)

I remember collecting stickers of them when I was little and I still have them to this day, and this is one of the images, so its definately an oldie. ;) lol
