daphné said...

hmm, my five favorites while creating...
first of all i almost always use flowers, no matter what brand of colour
also you can almost immediatly tell it's my lo when you look at my titles, 99% of them is made by thickers
i guess stamps are never far away when i make a lo or a card
lately i use lots of bubble-foil, don't know the word in english, it's a material to protect breakable things while transporting and has all bubbles over it, love to stamp with it, check my blog about it
and i simply can't work without my white pen

i placed a link on my blog about your candie
