Sending Flowery Hugs!

Oh my word! it feels like an age since I put a card of my own on here! Since OZ, then QVC, then going to Dorset to do more videos I've not had a minute to make a card just to make a card (IYKWIM). Well, I've had a little break from work this week, and it's been great just to be able to take a breather and have a bit of a sort out at home. Already I've packed a big bag of clothes ready for the Red Cross, and I'm in the process of parting with some old crafting stuff for the car boot sale. It's helping me actually set foot into my craft room, seeing as at the beginning of the week I couldn't physically get in there due to all the stuff!

Todays card is for the Sketch Challenge over on the Stampin' Chic Blog. Why not go take a look at the sketch and have a play - there's a prize up for grabs on sketch challenge week? I used the flowers from the Papermania (TM) CCSR Doodle Stamp Set and stamped onto Doodlebug (TM) spotty paper. I also used New Doodlebug (TM) papers to cover the cardblank and for the laters too. The greeting is from the Papermania (TM) CCSR Sentiments Stamp Set. I finished off the sketch with some cute little butterflies from the Doodlebug (TM) icons cardstock sticker sheet.

Products Used: Stamps: Papermania(TM) CCSR Doodles, Sentiments. Paper and Cardstock: Doodlebug( TM) Cherry Cobbler (2125), Pink Lemonade Plaid (2121), Strawberry Dot glitter cardstock (2147), Stickers: Doodlebug (TM) Icon Stickers Cherries Jubilee (2173) Embellishments: Papermania (TM) permanent Pens, white buttons, black ink, black fine line pen.
Hope you like it! Hopefully I can keep up with making some more cards this week too. I have to sort out a pension this week, so as you can imagine, that will be riviting!

Love, Clare x
