Friday Sketcher

Afternoon all, dont know where the times go but have just managed to finish this card for the 
Friday Sketcher and get a piccie (sorry about the quality, dont know what happend there, but it looks alot better IRL). Bought these stamps at Ally Pally, (Clear Art Stamps). Love my cute cards to bits but every now and then I like to stray. I actually started my crafting off with vintage/altered cards, that was a few years ago now. It was only once I bought a few cute stamps that I found I was most comfy with them. So nice to do something different for a change. The papers are My Minds Eye and have coloured the image with Derwent ColourSoft Pencils and Sansodor. A piece of rafia, button, assorted flowers and button and L-Em punch. Distressed the edges using Tims nifty gadget and stippled with chalk ink pads. Had to get the food shop out of the way today, now I really must do the chores and hope to sit down and craft again this evening. Think I'm going to be excited tonight as I rarely go to bed before midnight. I have quite a handful of cards from crafters to open so the big kid in me is starting to rear LOL. Enjoy the rest of the day
