A Last Hurrah and A Blog Award

Well, here we are at the last day of both the Summer mini and Sale-a-bration, so I thought I'd make a card as a last hurrah. No time for more, as I'm busy having a huge spring clean - and finding that I have WAAAAY too much retired SU stuff still hanging around! It's getting so bad that I'm having trouble fitting everything into my craft room - so I'm either going to have to clear some stuff out or get a bigger craft room! I know which of those options I would prefer, but that isn't going to happen in a hurry (I'll have to wait a few years until DD13 moves out, ROFLOL!) so I have decided to make a concerted effort to use up old papers, ribbons, etc.

Today's card uses up some scraps of old card and matching markers that I got from the US a couple of years ago but you could use current colours instead of course.

Here's a bright and cheery Fresh Vintage:

Materials used:
  • stamps - Fresh Vintage, Short & Sweet
  • card - Bermuda bay, crushed curry, whisper white, melon mambo patterns paper
  • other - edgelits die, scallop oval punch, large oval punch, dimensionals, markers
You'll notice that edgelits die in there again - I did warn you that you would be seeing a lot of that one! And just think, as from tomorrow you can buy it for yourself!

Also today I want to thank the lovely Tina White who was kind enough to bestow the Liebster Blog Award on me recently. Thanks so much for the compliment Tina, I am honoured to receive it. The conditions of the award are:

Kerry, I love this card using the new edging dies! Can you believe I have had them sitting here for a few weeks now and am yet to use them! I really need to have a play, they look so effective.
And thankyou so much for the blog award :)
