New Year, New Challenges

Happy New Year to all my blog friends & other readers!
Nothing new here in Scunthorpe today, raining cats & dogs. The weather doesn't care what the calendar says. I felt the need to crack on with some much needed birthday cards & the very first blog feed I came across this morning was Caardvarks. Pop over & try this fab sketch for yourselves. Nice, quick & easy. Papers are DCWV Far East & MM Vintage Hip Collection Gracen. The stamps are Words, Crafty Individuals & a free floral circle from SI, which I stamped 3 times, cut out & mounted on sticky pads for a nice 3D element. The centre is a small red flower from a plastic flower arrangment at work!
