Well when I saw Sugar Creek Hollow's challenge yesterday I didn't think I would be doing it. didn't think I had anything with sunflowers on and also I just don't seem to use yellow on cards much and also it doesn't seem very vintage, however I finally remembered this stamp which I have had for years and never used, it came in a grab bag from Stamp Connections and has been lurking in the bottom of drawer ever since, the other little sunflowers are made from paperclay and they also have been around for a long time !
Yesterday was the Harrogate Papercraft Show , I had a lovely day there, met some people who have blogs thanks to Avril from Mrs B's Addiction, got some lovely new stamps from Inkilicious amongst others and some Spellbinders shapabilities which I am having problems getting out of the die as they are so intricate !


  1. Joan, so glad that you could play this week and what a pretty card. I love sunflowers and am going to enjoy visiting around so much this week. Those clay flowers are so lovely. Glad you had fun shopping, that always makes me happy.
    Thanks for joining us at Sugar Creek Hollow this week.

  3. I love it, its such a pretty card and does look vintagy. I know what you mean about the intricate dies i have a little slim pokey tool i use just to lift the edges when trying to remove from the die.
    have a fantastic day my lovely friend

  6. This is such a pretty card and so vintage looking with that gorgeous diecut and the ink distressing you've done. Love the antique look of the background paper too. Thanks for joining us at Sugar Creek Hollow !
