Friday Sketchers meets SWALK

First of all, I need to say a huge THANK YOU to Elaine over at 'a Technophobes Blog' for holding a candy in honour of her son Hal as I won it and I was over the moon! I was jumping up and down on my seat (which is not good, as I'm not the smallest of people!) and looking like a right loon! Big THANK YOU to Hal too, for picking me out of the many people who won.

I've been meaning to play with the stamps, papers and goodies I won for a while now but just have not had the time. Tonight however I made time. 

And here we are...
I have used my Distress Inks on this cutie which is called - S.W.A.L.K -Thinking of you! by Crafters Companion.
Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky, Wild Honey, Tea Dye, and Spun Sugar - simple huh?
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, including the leaves and the pearl spray. The pins I had in my stash.
Papers were also in the candy I won and they are by Memory Box and are called 'Frond' and are absolutely gorgeous!
I've added some ribbon and three green gems from stash.

I am entering this into the Friday Sketchers challenge which was quick and easy to do! 

Catch you all soon, I'm off to bed from some much needed shut eye!

Lovely card Kimmi and such a cute image, coloring is fabulous. I think you like the distress inks more now than your copics...lol
Papers are lovely and a great sketch layout.

Congratulations on your win - its great to be so excited, I know I'd be just as giddy! Your card is brilliant; the stamp is very cute but the colours you have used bring it out.

Hi Kimmi
love your card.
I know how excited you must have been to win Elaine's fab candy (cos I have won on her blog candy also in the past), that girl is so kind & generous to a fault.

Can't wait to see what else you create with your candy.

Hi Kimmi

Well done on the win. And a super card here as well, I always think blues and greens work so well together.

Thanks for your message, I don't remember a mail from you. I usually reply to mails, even if only a line, so if you didn't get a response I don't think it arrived.
