Getting Sentimental

So, after very good intentions of blogging earlier this morning,it is now 5.30pm and I have finally got a chance to load something up to show you.

I would like to say that I have been busy crafting all day - alas no! - but I have had a lovely day all the same, and I am very pleased with myself as I came across a very unusual, but perfect Christmas present, whilst I was out on my walk abouts.....can't really say any more about that now....nudge nudge, wink wink!!

I also got some very nice 'condiment' type pressies whilst at our local garden centre today so I am feeling that I have achieved something towards the festive season!!!!

Back to today's card though. As you can see, it's really simple and it's made using a lovely Polkadoodles stamp, very simply coloured in with Promarkers, on a 4 inch square card.

As you can see, I have pulled out my trusty sentiments sheet, to stamp a very simple 'thank you' at the bottom.

Simple....but sweet - I hope you will agree!!

So there are plenty of challenges that fit with this card, and here they are.....

Papertake - Anything Goes
My Mum'sCraft Shop - Sentiments
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes
Card Makin Mamas - Thank you
Passion for Promarkers - In the Garden
Less is More - 1 layer, houses

Well that's my card for today.

I am DETERMINED to colour some stamps at some time SWALKs and Mulberrys are calling this space!

Thanks for dropping by.
