Beautiful! .... that's what you are.. :)

Good morning peeps, how are we all today...
the sun is out and the kids are fed .. washing is almost done... crafting here we come.. lol
I was looking through my stamps the other day after thinking that i have way too many and that i really need to ink the older ones up again... am i the only one guilty of not using our stamps enough... or more than once...:( 
anyway on my rummaging i found this gorgeous older sugar nellie stamp by Elizabeth Bell. she is called picking apples.. 
I have tried to get the creases in  the clothes but not too sure if i have succeeded. mmmm jury's out on that one.. lol.....

This is adorable!! What a sweet stamp and you have coloured her beautifully. I have heaps of stamps I have hardly used. I prefer to buy digis because they are easier to store and cheaper and I dont feel bad if I only use them once!
