Hi There

Well That was some break from blogging!

I had lots of things going on in life and decided to take a break from blogging for a week or so ! ! ! OK it was a little longer than that :)

Hopefully things are on the up now, and I should have more time to craft and even blog!

So to get me back into the crafting frame of mind I went 'back to basics'. Using some of those toppers  which I'm sure we all have sitting there feeling unloved. This one is one which I had stamped out and coloured in but then it sat in a pile waiting to be made into a card.

The image is from Lili of the Valley
 The image has been coloured in with Promarkers.
It was die cut using Nesties Labels 2, then gently inked with Fired Brick distress Ink, whilst still in the die.
The papers come from the LOTV Candles and Cake Paper Pad.
The buttons in the top right and bottom left corners are, I think from Papermania, with Spots on them.
I hope this card has enough spots on it :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges :-
Crafty Sentiments - Spots or Dots
 Crafty Little Fairies - Shopping (for a present)

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my creations.
