Dusty stamps...and a promise!

The gorgeous Gill is challenging everyone to get out their dusty stamps...and shock, horror...use them! I managed to use three on this and now feel quite guilty about the new ones I have just ordered. I completely stole the idea for this one off the very talented Pam. I make no apologies as I just adore her work! (Thanks Pam!)

Well if I'm going to use dusty stamps then I thought I had better start using up my dusty papers...Basic Grey...obviously!! The flower was made up of a chip board flower that I painted, then a white paper flower and then a design from the Basic Grey pack all topped with a metal flower from Maya Road.

Since I posted my blog candy I have been overwhelmed by the response. Some of the challenges that people have overcome or achieved has made me smile, laugh, cry and think very hard about what other people go through in life.
So this week I am going to visit every single blog that entered to find out more about the people that shared, what sometimes, was a very personal life changing event.
Thank you to everyone that has taken part and for sharing such heart warming stories.

Beautiful cards Emma. I love the butterfly one - the colours are gorgeous.
I have so many stamped images I have set myself the challenge to use them before stamping any more - so I will have lots of stamps to dust off soon!LOL
Have a good day,
