ABC challenge Y is for Yesteryear

What a great challenge over at ABC Challenge to use the first stamp you bought. Well I cant remember exactly which was my first stamp but I know that the one that I have used which is part of a set of 4 is definately amongst the first (and to be honest I'd forgotten they were in the drawer!) They are by Rubbadubbadoo and the collection is called Art Flowers. These are actually magnet backed and are still available. The background paper is from the Artylicious Filigree Fusion CD which I then embossed with paisley pattern from the BS texture plates. The flower is coloured with wc pencils and mounted onto some coredintaion cs also embossed then a bit of ribbon from my stash. This card is actually a sympathy card (I really dont like making sympathy cards) so I have kept it very simple. TFL

Snow is still falling here so Ria has gone to bed happy (no school tomorrow! lol) and I am feeling a little more relaxed as I have had to move to the late shift now so hopefully by lunchtime the roads will be a bit clearer and although I dont finish til 9.30pm there arent too many people on the road that time of night so I miss all the mad people who still drive as if its dry and bright conditions!
