Little Claire's Cuties

Hi there! Hope you're having a lovely day! Before I show you my card for today I want to say a special thankyou to my good friend Megan and my crafty friend Anne for sponsoring me for the Great North Run through my just Giving page which you can find here - I'm running for asthma UK - thanks  Megan and Anne - you're both stars and its fabulous that you've started the ball rolling for me!

I got my Little Claires stamp club stamps and card kit for April and this month the stamps are just so cute I vowed to use them before the month was out. And here they are:

Don't you think they're sweetie pies? The sentiment stamp came with the set.  There's another beautiful stamp too - will try to use that one soon - they're lovely every month - I just seem to be disappearing under an ever increasing pile of stamps in the 'to use' pile - I must stop buying!!!!

I've coloured the image in with promarkers and then used Mowed Lawn DI around the circle edge. I've followed the sketch on the Little Claires challenge blog and added flowers from the Pretty Little Ribbon shop and mesh from the Ribbon Girl. I followed the colour scheme of the Crafty Ribbons challenge which is pink and green. The card I cut with my Go Kreate die and the first layer with another one from the set. The green layer is from a First Edition pad.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Little Clairelittleclairesdesigns - spring and sketch
Crafty Ribbonscraftyribbonschallenge: Pink and green
Penny'spennyschallenges use a sentiment
I love promarkersilovepromarkers: pastels

Looking forward to gardening club today with the children at school - if its dry we'll be putting strawberries in and also potatoes and planting some more seeds! Plenty to do!

Hope to see you again soon and thanks for dropping by!

Big Hugs
