Hello today to all my friends and followers, hoping you are all well and enjoying your week so far.
I'm having a really busy time at work as it is our Open Evening tomorrow so the work load is beyond crazy and my poor machines are working so hard-I'm sure they will breathe a sigh of relief when it's all over too!
I've not got too much energy in the evenings for crafting at the moment, hope that changes during the next couple of weeks, but I did manage to make this card up at the weekend as I wanted to use some more of my new papers from Nitwit.
I'd seen the sketch over at Creative Inspirations and I thought it was just the sort of thing I like so decided to follow that for my card-just a shame I didn't realise it closed yesterday lol!!!.
I've coloured up my image with Promarkers, I keep seeing other people using pencils to add definition so must try that soon. The papers are called In the Meadow Too and I've layered them with some Kraft card which I haven't used for some time. I die cut a heart shape using a tonic die and punched a strip for the middle with a Martha Stewart punch. I added some paper flowers and pearls to finish off:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Whoopsi Daisy -hand coloured
Crafty Sentiments-anything goes
Shopping our Stash #222 -birthdays-oldest stash (my little pearls which I've had for ever!!)
Wags n Whiskers #163 -use a die

Well thank you so much for stopping by today and for any comments you may wish to leave.
Enjoy the rest of your week and until next time.
