Have A Great Day!

Well, I am right on the ball this week - only a day or so after the challenge has gone live and I've made my card! No last minute minnie for me on this one!! This card is for the current Bugaboo challenge which is to follow the sketch and the theme of:

April Showers

It was quite an inspired moment - the backing paper is a bargain 25p 12x12 sheet from my now joint favourite craft shop - Inspirations which has not long been open and is not too far from me (15 mins down the motorway towards Preston if I put my toe down). It's K & Co and is very nice!

I thought it went well with the image and I coloured it with Promarkers to match the paper. The coloured card is from my stash, along with the ribbon. The sentiment is an Anita's stamp and the largest of the three brads is Queen & Co, very generously sent to me by Jenny a while ago (see - I've opened them!!!) The other two are from my stash - probably Dovecraft.

  • Backing paper: K&Co
  • Image: Bugaboo coloured with Promarkers
  • Large Brad: Queen & Co from Jenny
  • Everything else: My stash
