Well, my basket of cards is now increasing nicely. I just seem to get a few up together and Mum comes and raids the stock. Does anyone else have this problem?!!! Bless her!! I am just loving my punches at the mo and after decoupaging this little butterfly, it made me realise that I actually miss my cutting. I was always a cutter rather than a stamper, as Wendy will tell you, I didn't do stamping but now what would I do with my Copic Pens, I just can't give them up. So perhaps this is a compromise!! This is another of Wendys stamps that I coloured up on Saturday, I really love them and think I may have to treat myself. I did buy a set but not these, mine have still to see the ink pad!! Shame on me.
Anyway on to todays card, it will definately do for Cute Card Thursday which is Blooming Gorgeous and it is a bit of an adaption of the Truly Scrumptious Sketch without one bit, just couldn't fit it on, will give it ago anyway. Here it is, hope you like it.
