Posting at a More Relaxed State

Hi everyone and here is my first card today at a more leisurely pace than my last post. Its my card for this weeks Penny Black Challenge which was to use one of their stamps or images to make the background for your card. So my image is from the pack of stamps called Jolly Follies and the background I have stamped the sentiment from that set all over the base card which was pale green. I have added my image and have added some Flowersoft where the snow should be, added a sentiment and also a couple of flowers with little button as the centre.
This cute card is a double entry firstly for Charisma Cardz whose theme this week was 4 legged friends so hope my cute monkey will qualify eating his xmas pud. The image I have used is from some digi stamps I have purchased this week from Pollycrafts check them out if you haven't already. They have some cute images and this was my first go at purchasing them and now my daughter has showed me what to do I shall be doing it again. I have coloured him in using Pro-markers and have used Flowersoft as the sauce on the pudding, this little monkey is called Chester and he is way too cute. The sketch is the challenge this week from Sketch Saturday and hope if you drop buy you like this cute little chimp.

This is my card this week for four challenges! Lili of the Valley which was the sketch I have used and one of their images.Totally Papercraft which was to bling it up, and Allsorts Challenge which was free and easy July. So my card has a lovely image of a cute little boy giving his friend  a bunch of flowers, so cute, The bling part of my challenge is the lovely card I have laid out the sketch on, which is all glittery but you can't see it very well on my photo sorry. It was from a new pack of papers, which my daughter bought the other day and its lush by First Edition Papers, think I may have to put some of those on my crimbo wish list! I added some ribbon, sentiment and some lovely flowers. The pink pearly ones are from Anitas Crafts and they were a special buy when we were out the other day craft shopping. This card is one of my favourites so far this week.
