Bunny Toadstool for Two

Thanks so much for all your kind wishes yesterday.  We had a anniversary (well a nice evening cos we were both at work during the day !!! LOL).

There's a new challenge today at the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog and the task for the next fortnight is to dig out and use your old stash.  Well, looking at my craft desk, I seem to have quite a lot of stash, although somehow it never seems quite enough!  ;0)

I've dug out a LOTV image that I've had for many months, but only used a couple of times.  I've also used one of my oldest sentiments (you can get this off my Freebies page along with a shed-load of others to choose from).  The flowers are also really old (although I ordered some new ones at the weekend from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I was starting to run low of their beautiful blooms, which is a tragedy in my eyes, and as soon as I got onto their website, I was shocked at how fast my basket seemed to fill up with all sorts of pretty petals.  So keep your eyes peeled for some new flowers in the near future.  Finally the pearls and Grand Nesties Labels that I use for my card base shape are both items that I've had in my stash for ages too.

Despite a lot of old stash, the gorgeous satin ribbon is new, and the paper is one that I've only had a couple of months.  I really love this paper set, mainly because it is my current favourite colour combo of pink and brown, but also because I love these double sided papers which I can flip over for a perfectly complementary two tone card.

The tan coloured matting paper behind the image and sentiment is actually shimmery, but unfortunately this has not shown any shimmer in the photos.

This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Nicecrane Designs and also Sew Sweet which is where my ribbon is from.  I got carried away when I placed my order and bought quite a few different colours as they are just so gorgeous, so expect to see some more over the next few weeks.



Please pop on over to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.
