I made this card yesterday & have scheduled this post because I have work !!! still ... only 10 working days left, I then get 5 - 6 weeks off, YAY, that's what's good about working term time only. I get ALL the school holidays.
I have used my new stamps that I purchased off of Create & Craft. I must say that I am truly disappointed with their service. It has taken two weeks for them to send my stamps!!! I don't know why it takes sooo long. I have paid the postage. Anyone else had this problem?
Anyway enough of me moaning Lol
I have made my card for pink ink sketch challenge. It's their 1st ever challenge & they have lots of prizes from different sponsors up for grabs & a blog hop too. This is a fortnightly challenge too, sooo, pop on over & join in.
For this challenge they want you to follow a sketch.
