My favourite things....

The kids have been home for half-term this week so I am running late on all my challenges. To be honest I was going to have a week out but my MIL and FIL took the girls out unexpectedly yesterday so Mum got a little relaxation time :-)

This card is for our current challenge over at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog where our wonderful designer Jacqui is asking you to use your favourite things - this could be favourite colours, embellishments, charms etc...

The sweet image on my card is a new release stamp Bedtime Story. She is coloured with my favourite medium - Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stump to blend. My other favourites are Cosmo Cricket papers (these are from the new Material girl stack), gorgeous little Prima mini roses and 8mm flat back pearls in new golden yellow. I stamped in my favourite ink Memento and distressed the edges with VersaMagic Jumbo Java chalk. Thanks for the great challenge Jacqui!

If you don't have any Wags 'n Whiskers, then it's time to go shopping!!!. Be sure to check out the amazing samples from the rest of the Wags 'n Whiskers designers. We hope you can play along with us!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
