Divas by Design - Your Favourite Stamp

Hello.... hope you are all doing ok today. Sadly this is my last challenge with Divas. I've not been feeling too well recently so I've decided to cut down on my DT work. Nothing serious, I'm just feeling very tired and keep picking up infections one after the other. So think I need to make some changes to my lifestyle.
I will miss my Divas ... thank you Rebekah and the girls for having me on your wonderful Team... I've loved working with you all !!

We have a wonderful theme for you this week of....

'Use Your Favourite Stamp'

Wow! it's really hard to pick a favourite stamp isn't it!! I have so many favourites... but decided to go with one that I use often... this adorable Nellie Snellen: 'Sweet Eline's - Flower'. So many reasons why I love this image... it's delicate and pretty and can look very different depending on how you colour it. It's also quick to colour if you are in a hurry. Also think it can be used for almost any occasion apart from male cards! and I have used it on Get Well Cards, Birthday Cards, Thinking of You Cards... so that is why it is a big favourite of mine.

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Stamp and Create

I hope you can pop on over to our main blog at Divas by Design and see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations!!! :-))

Thanks for all your lovely comments and get well wishes. My horrid cold is finally getting a bit better... at least I can sleep now... and I've got my appetite back. My mum has been very ill with it too... but thankfully she is now on the mend too.
Went to a friend's house at weekend for Pizza night... so that cheered me up.
Mr Blogger is still playing up big time... think he must have heatstroke!! some very weird things happening with comment boxes!!
I'll be back tomorrow with something very special... so hope you can pop back !! ;-)
Take Care
Love and hugs

Hi Sue Your colouring is divine love the pinks and turquoise on your stamp the glitter then that added yellow shade in the paper. It must have been so hard to pick a favourite stamp, as you say this one is perfect for adapting to many occasions.
Great to hear you and mum are both feeling a little better and that you had an enjoyable time at your pizza night. Hugs Meg xx
