A Spoon Full of Sugar and Papertake Weekly!

Morning all! Finally the snow has arrived in NE Scotalnd. Yippee! What fun we had walking to school...took 45 mins to come home with a 2 year old in tow! Normally takes 5 - 10mins!!

It is really thick but life goes on as normal and it has been snowing all morning. I am half expecting a call fom the school to say it is shutting early...but us Scots are a hardy lot and this is not unusual for us in the winter.

Looking forward to snowman building and sledging at 3:00 when school's out!!

Anyway, to the card. I loved the sketch this week. Thanks Tina! I also have realised I can enter into this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge which is 'Hearts and Fowers'.

I coloured a Hanglar image with prismacolour pencils and Sansador. I finally broke open my BG 'Bittersweet' papers and I'm glad I did..they are gorgeous! I distressed and stitched my papers and then punched lots of flowers with mt EK Success Retro flower punches. I sanded the edges of them to match the look of the card. I found lots of heart shaped brads lurking around so decided to use them for the centre of the flowers.

The sentiment is a rub-on from a sheet of 'Love and Romance' ...from where I cannot remember as I have thrown the sleeve away!!

Thanks for taking the time to look and leave a comment. They make my day brighter! So, thank you to each and every one of you who does :)

Happy Wednesday!
