Wow don't know where last week went, really can't remember doing anything yet don't seem to have had time to actually get anything done, don't you hate it when that happens!?! I didn't manage to get any cards done last week cos my back was bad - fairly certain it was sciatica, seems to be alot better now but it meant that couldn't sit and get any cards done which was really frustrating as I had loads of ideas in my head, and typically as soon as got some time to get them done the ideas have gone and locked themselves away in a cupboard at the back of my brain never to be seen again lol.

Ah well I decided to try something new for my first card, I think I'd said in an older post that I came across the Lili of the Valley Challenge blog, they have a sketch challenge on at the moment so I decided to give it a go, I've used sketches before loads of times for scrapbooking but never for a card, really helped get over 'card-block' lol, and here is the result

Supplies: 'Zooming Along' Stamp by Lili of the Valley, Paper by Heidi Grace, Card and Gems by Doodlebug, Buttons by Bo Bunny & Ribbon from Craft shop
I coloured the image with Promarkers, though I think a Copic or two may have popped in, I'd originally planned on putting a ribbon across with a bow but it made it look far to girly, think the knot through the button works much better even if I do say so myself.
Anyways it's getting really late now and still need to tidy up (card-making in bed never a good idea lol) so going to leave this here XOX
