Sketch Saturday .........

Well its about time I posted a card! After a hectic weekend, I finally got around to making a card last night. I have made a card similar to this before for a friend's birthday but as I love this paper so much I thought I would make another similar one! I really loved this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday so I will definitely being using this one again.

I was feeling a bit fed up this morning as my husband Will is still working long hours on the farm and won't be home till at least 9pm tonight, so I took me and Grace off to a local craft shop for a spot of retail therapy. I brought a couple of the new forever friends stamps, some paper and flowers but I did really need them!

Thanks for popping in, please leave me a comment if you have time.

Hi Lynsey, sorry you were feeling fed up this morning and it's hard when your partner isn't around a lot when you're at home with the baby. The time of year I suppose with the farm. Nothing like a bit of retail therapy to cheer you up, I thought you were very restrained LOL! I daren't tell you how much stuff I bought at the weekend EEK! Your card is absolutely beautiful and so is your colouring, I love that sketch too and it'll be one to use again and again. I have that pretty paper too and am nearly out of it now, I've used it a lot. Hope you enjoy playing with your new stash. Hugs, Chris x
