I am addicted to this image!!!



I am addicted to using this fantastic digital image from squigglefly, its such a cute image and so easy to colour. This card is for the sketch challenge over at ETBTKS. I don't usually like sketch challenges but this one wasn't to tricky so decided to have a go.

Made this using the Wheat Grass Stamp from Hero Arts. I have been inspired by all the great cards using this stamp on the flickr group and also it was an excuse to get all inky with my distress inks. They are such fun to use as you never know how things will turn out. Decided to add some glossy accents to the grass for dimension.



Not had much time for crafting over the last two days its my lovely daughters birthday today and we travelled to Bristol yesterday to spend some time with her. Its was so good to get together again, she is in her final year at University and is really busy so visits are few and far between.
Also please check out my side bar the lovely Vanessa has some amazing Blog Candy to give away. She is a very talented crafter and her blog is a constant source of inspiration, take a look I promise you won't be disappointed.

Hope you are all having a fun and crafty weekend.
