Enjoy the little things

Good evening my lovelies

I'm sorry, I've been a little AWOL with my crafting this week. Things have been really busy again and I didn't get much made last weekend either. Me and OH spent a lovely day out together yesterday, we borrowed a dog each from our friends and went to the local country park. OH is desperate for his own dog, but until we buy our own house, we have to make do with borrowing other peoples! We dropped the dogs off again and had a cup of tea with my bestie, chatting about not being able to afford to go to Crufts this year :( 
Later that evening she called me with some exciting news- her mum has won two tickets and can't go! Bestie is 38 weeks preggers and daren't go, so the tickets are ours! Roll on next weekend :)

Anyway, you came here to look at cards, and this is one I made today:

The image is a new stamp by Penny Black, which I've coloured with Promarkers. The papers were scraps from my box (hurrah!) and are Forever Friends. I bought the gorgeous Memory Box Cherish border die on payday and I love it, expect to see it on a regular basis. The flowers are from Wild Orchid.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers - Pastel Colours
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Divas by design - Spots and/or Stripes
Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring

Phew- that should help me catch up a bit, I'll be back tomorrow with another one.

Take care
