Sassy Birthday

Happy Sunday everyone, I've had a lovely lie in this morning and the sun is shining - what more can you ask for a Sunday morning! Was up early for my first craft fair of the year yesterday but it wasn't really worth the bother - I was stuck in a corner of the village hall surrounded by home baking, jams & chutneys and smoked salmon and only a few brave souls fought their way to my corner to buy a handcrafted card or two! Never mind, there's a new venue to try next month so I'll keep my fingers crossed for that one :o)

Today's card was made with one of the stamps I won the other week from the Sugar Bowl challenge, Hippie Chick is one of the Simply Sassy range by Krista Smith and is my favourite one so far. I coloured the image with Promarkers adding a few little highlights with a white gel pen, my lovely sunny backing papers are Spring Fling from Blonde Moments and I added faux stitching and a handwritten greeting. Ribbon, flowers, brad and buttons are from my stash.

Clearly Jenni the ladies in your own town don't recognise quality when they see it or you would have sold out.

This is beautifully vibrant, and did I read a 'handwritten sentiment'? Such neat handrwiting I was about to ask if it was a rub on when I read it back!
