I don't do mornings!

There is a great sketch this week over at Friday sketchers which I have used for my card today. Thanks Carole! The adorable image is Bunny Slippers by Paper Pretties. If you are new to these cute stamps I have a great selection over in my store.

The sentiment also comes with the image and I have stamped this onto my dp using Versafine Onyx Black and used the SU Spiral punch on the edging. My image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, then coloured with a mixture of copic sketch markers and Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend.

The fab new papers are by My Mind's Eye - Wild-Asparagus. These papers are a UK and European exclusive! The flowers are Prima Hydrangea and I added SU Rhinestone brads to the centres. To finish I added tiny buttons from the Victorian collection to the corners.

Hope you are all keeping cool and today is going to be our hottest day this year.

See you tomorrow when I have some exciting news to share with you ;-)

Hugs,
