Hugs & Kisses and candy news

Hello. I'm feeling a teeny bit brighter today so posting a bright card for you, I've done enough cards out of my comfort zone recently so it's back to pink and best of all - I now have printer ink - woo-hoo! No more paper limitations.

Anyway on to my card, it's based on the sketch by Dawny P at Anyone for Anya and it's the easiest to work with sketch and it's now top of my favourites! So being as Stamp Something are asking us to use our favourite sketch, this fits the bill nicely (ta Dawny). The Pink Elephant want us to use dots, a punch and a tag.

Paperplay have asked us to use spots too - love them for that!, Creatalicious set the fabulous colour combo of pink or plum with Burgundy and Green with lace or ribbon. Check me out finding I had some green lace!

Do you like the tag? It's by Making Memories, I punched a hole in it with Mr Big Bite and attached it with some green thread to the rather delicious lace by Doodlebug. I punched the green heart on Megan's t-shirt and the ones on the mat too.

I've avoided using this Megan stamp for a bit as I admit I was worried about shading her hair! I'm happy with the result though so she's ventured out of my drawer and onto a card. The spotty paper is Doodlebug and the bright green is Colorplan.

Well I'm so chuffed as I now have more than 100 followers - thank you all, it means so much to know you're regularly popping over for a look and you leave such lovely comments too, all much appreciated. So to celebrate and say thanks I'm going to put together some scrummy candy, so watch this space!
