70th Birthday

I normally make little boy cards for my MIL but she had said how she likes cards with little girls on them as well so as it was a special birthday I went with a little girl. This stamp was released when I first started card making as part of a TSV on QVC, back in the days when Dawn Bibby was the main attraction. I so wanted this set, stamps, a bag to store them in and other stuff but I wasn't a stamper so I decided against it, hubby came in from work and said buy it but it had already sold out and I was so disappointed. I searched eBay often but the bag and stamps went for ridiculous prices so I thought it was lost to me. Imagine my surprise then when I found it with several sets of stamps on eBay for a song, I had to buy it, this time I didn't even hesitate I pressed that buy-it-now button quicker than you can say "do you take paypal" and it was mine. 

This is the first stamp I have used from the sets it contained, it stamped perfectly and is a lovely image to colour, only thing now is to use the other sets...time will tell lol.

Anyway enough waffling onto the card, which as my mojo is missing is fairly simple but the Mil liked it and that is all that mattered. I am hoping that Nit Wit release another purple kit soon though as I need to use different papers on her next card.
