Because You're Wonderful

Hello dear Crafters

Still feeling poorly today, I hate being ill. Only consolation is that its Pancake day and they will make me feel all better! I've just got to find a way of getting off the sofa to make them.
I planned on an early night last night, but OH decided to indulge in his little hobby of abusing call centres *Groan* On a regular basis he will call a large call centre belonging to one of the companies we spend lots of moneys with and argue with them for at least an hour over something trivial until he gets some credit on our account. Most people (me included) wouldn't even contemplate calling over something daft like our tv not showing a certain channel for a few hours, but OH sees an opportunity and cannot help himself. He says he hates calling these places- but he does it that often that I've decided he secretly loves the buzz. I find myself physically cringing every time he picks up the phone, so last night I hid in my craft room and made this:

The papers are my new Echo Park Springtime set, the image is from Penny Black and I've coloured it with Promarkers. I've punched the edge with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch, I cut the hearts freehand. The ribbon is by Smirk and the flowers are a Woodware punch.

I want to enter this card into the following challenges:

Penny Black & More - Play Bingo (Kraft, Green & Blue)
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Pearls & Lace
Sketch & Stash Challenge - Sketch and new papers (stash)
Cute Card Thursday - Flower Power
I Love Promarkers - Nature
Truly Scrumptious - All creatures great & small

Thats it from me today, see you tomorrow
