Cute Panda

As you all know I love Panda's but the lady that introduced me to card making and helped me empty my bank account is even more obsessed with them than me lol. Sue is a lady that lives near my Mum and she gave my Mum the idea to buy me a TSV for my birthday way back in 2005, she got the idea as I was like a kid in a candy store when I saw her substantial stash and as I have always loved paper, notepads and stationary this seemed to be the perfect hobby for me. I do remember saying that even though I really enjoyed making the cards in that kit I was not going to get hooked and spend a lot, and I was right, I am not hooked I am obsessed and I haven't spent a lot I have spent a fortune lol.

I really can't thank her enough as without her I wouldn't have met all of you, shared some good and bad times with people that share my card making passion and with whom I feel a kindred connection.

Ok so now after getting all emotional I suppose I should show you the card lol. I used a gorgeous digi stamp from The Paper Shelter, so easy to colour and so adorable too.

Papers are from a lettering delights kit that I bought in their $1 sale about four years ago and have never used(edited: just went to add the link and it appears to be retired, although there are loads of new cut files and fonts to see). I used new card that I bought in October from Papertrey Ink, such a gorgeous cream craft colour I can't believe this is the first time I have cut into this colour.
