Favourite Stamp

I'm back again - although I promise that this is a much shorter post!  As it's Friday that means time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts - and this week our lovely Cathy (KraftyKoolKat) has chosen the theme 'Favourite Stamp'.  We're sponsored this week by

so do pop over and join us this week!

Now, at first glance I thought "Oh, that's an easy one!" - but then when I sat down and looked at my stamps I felt quite tearful! How can I pick a favourite one? There are so many that I wanted to use!
So eventually I decided that I would use one of my earlier stamps that I do still love - and still stamps perfectly every time! -

This is Sarah Kay stamp 'First Kiss' - and they are just so cute! 
I've coloured them with promarkers and pencils

The backing papers are from K&Co and a magazine freebie!  I've used my Tonic border punch and some lovely ribbon from my stash that I've had so long that I've forgotten where it came from!  The flowers are using a Marianne die, with a swirl. And then I've added a Whimsy sentiment stamp with ticket die. 
So quite a simple card from me - but I plead guilty to getting a bit rushed with ferrying limping offspring about yesterday (see earlier post!) but I was quite pleased with the image! 
Hope you like it too!  So do have a look through your favourite stamps and join us this week at Totally Papercrafts!
Back soon, Kim x 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
Paper Pretties - punches
Paper Shelter - punches
Papertake Weekly - things that make you go awww!
