Card Give away..


Good morning all 🙂

Can’t believe how early I got up this morning while I didn’t even have a good reason to! Planned to have a great big lay-in or even have a read.. but couldn’t, so got up and hybernated into my room for a couple of hours.

When i seen the new sketch over at SKETCH SATURDAY  I loved it so much..  had to make a start with it straight away..

[click on picture for full view]


I’ve wanted to use these yummie BoBunny papers that I got from their CHA make & take stand eversince I came back and the sketch was perfect for it 🙂

The Prima flowers are also from the States.. and I love how they now add stamens and leaves to them!

The lovely Heidi among the flowers stamp I got from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, isn’t she just the cutest?!




I get asked lots if I sell my cards.. and to keep a long story short.. I don’t!

I much prefer to give/send them so as I didn’t make this card for any particular reason,
I thought it might be nice to turn it into a little quick Card give-away..

So if you would like this card send to you,  leave me a comment and a random message will be picked by  by Sunday evening 🙂


Have a fabulous weekend everyone,

Hugs, Marlene x
