Special Delivery.....

Hello dear blogging friends: My teammates and I have a new challenge over at RETRO RUBBER for you to play with, this time we want to see you create your cards using your older than a year BABY CRITTER STAMPS , we can't wait to see what you create.
Here is my card that I hope inspires you to join us in the gallery.

Most of you know how much I adore the House Mouse siblings, this image is one of the many reasons why I just love them. The stamp is called "Butterflight" and I think it's just adorable, I have had this stamp for at least 5 years.
I colored it with SU markers and Prismacolor pencils for the Butterfly's wings, the pattern paper is from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Hello Baby". The little hearts on that tag are made with an old Stampin' Up! corner punch, I really do not use it to punch corners, I just love the perfect little hearts it punches.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The frame around the CONGRATULATIONS word is from Penny Black and this is discontinued, I couldn't find it to give yoiu the link so it's old, the sentiments are from a Tailored Expressions called "Onsie Twosie", I looked for it but I'm afraid it's discontinued, so it's pretty old too.
So I hope you feel inspired to join my teammates and me in the RETRO RUBBER gallery, please stop by and check their amazing cards and blogs and leave them some comment love.

Please remember that, in order to be considered for Top 5 Picks, the stamps you use must be older than a year, we would love to know how old they are or how long you've had them.
You can use other new products like paper, dies and punches but, at least one of the stamps used should be older than a year, we want you to give those older images a chance to shine again.
Also, you can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges, INCLUDING OURS.

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.
2 Crafty Critter Crazies "Must feature a Creature"
Crafting When We Can Challenge #141 "Animals"
Card Mania Challenge #91 "April Showers Bring May Flowers" my little mousy is going to land in a field of Lilies of the Valley.
Crafts and Me April Challenge "Things with Wings"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
