Happy WCMD!

Hey!

Hooray not only for the weekend but also for....

Happy World Card Making Day, Peeps! I love that there's a day dedicated to this fabulous hobby! I wish it meant that I could clear my whole day to celebrate it, but alas, those pesky household jobs need doing still....well maybe they could wait for today? *wink*

I wonder if it's a happy coincidence, but I had some happy mail today all the way from Germany from my sweet (and very talented!) friend, Vanessa! You can check out the super sweet gift she sent here - what great timing eh?! She knows me so well, treating me to some sweet chocolates and some fabulous green supplies for this wonderful hobby our ours. Thanks so much, Vanessa you're a real treasure, *mwah!*

Ok so I better share a card seeing as it's WCMD today! Today I'm sharing a card I've made the curent colour cue {8} challenge. I've always wanted to play along with these challenges and squeezed this card into my inky time late last weekend and although I'm not entirely satisfied with my attempt, I still enjoyed making it nevertheless:

Thank You

I know, the leaves need more contrast against the white panel, and I've kinda bodged the background stamping but it adds to the home-made look, right?! *wink*

Right, keeping it short and sweet today. I've got loads to do if I wanna squeeze in any inky time today! Wishing you all a very happy World Card Making Day and hoping you all squeeze in some inky time today too!

Catch ya later!
