Made from scraps

Good morning everyone, it may be dull but it's still very warm! I hope all is well in your world, Hugs.

My exciting news today is that I have bought me a new car, well, new to me. My trusty little V reg Suzuki is a real old lady now at nearly 16, and very low so difficult and painful for me to get into and out of.  I have bought an 04 reg Peugeot 307 turbo diesel which is nearly twice the size and it purrs like a kitten, but best of all, I can get into and out of it much more easily. I will be picking it up on Thursday and Stephen doesn't have any therapy that day so I will get time to play with my new toy LOL.

On to my card for today. Nothing new was harmed in the making of it. Even the inkpad I used it 7 years old! :o)


Base card is white hammered from Papermill Direct years ago (I had one of those huge boxes full!), folded and cut to 6x6.
I covered it with a scrap of Basic Grey paper, also from years ago, which I had first inked around the edges. 
Flower cut from same paper with Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die, then inked before being attached with a gem brad.
Foliage cut with Cheery Lynn dies from a scrap of card from PDA.
Sentiment stamped with My Creative Time and the tiny dragonfly stamp is from a set of 40 in a box that I have had for aeons and never think to use!  :o)

This card is really beautiful Jackie... I love the colour... and the floral die is fabulous! You know when you look at some cards and know they're 'just right'? Well this is!!

Oooh exciting times with your new car... enjoy!! My OH's car is W reg and has done over 120,000 miles... but still gets him the mile or so to work and back!

Big hugs

Beautiful card Jackie, it's never too late to use up stash from way back is it. Don't think I need to go shopping if I did this! Have fun with your new car, maybe a trip to craft shop, see how easy it is to get all the stash aboard! Take care, Carolxx
