A Spoon Full of Sugar + Friday's Sketch

Hope everyone has had a good day, I haven't had much time to craft today, as I've been shopping... yes for crafting goodies. I got lost in the moment and was out for about 4 hours, and spent far too much money as usual but got all the essentials I was looking for. New backing papers, which I've been desperate for, although I love the PP downloads its nice to have a change. I also got some watercolour pencils, which I haven't worked with since I was at school, oh that brings back memories. And lots of other bits and pieces.

Anyway I did find time this afternoon to make a card for A Spoon Full of Sugar and Fridays Sketch. I used my lovely new stamp from SN - Sweet Ebony and coloured her with my new water colour pencils. The backing paper is from Paper Mania - Antique Cream and the flowers and buttons are from my stash. I used a piece of decorative wire, which I've had since my floristy days and have come in real handy with my cards. The sentiment is from Hero Arts - clear designs.





Have a great weekend - TFL x
