Ooops I have a confession!

Last year when Kellie (Tickled Pink Stamps) brought out the Stamping Bazaar range I was jumping up and down in my chair with excitement and quickly placed my order imaging all the gorgeous cards I would make with it. Well quite a few months later I have finally managed to make my first card using it. I am not sure why it took so long, I have even had the image sitting there all coloured up waiting to be used. Anyhow yesterday I decided that I was going to use it and enter Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges (something I have also been wanting to do for a long time now). There current challenge is a nice and easy one this month, anything goes.

Armed with this weeks sketch from Friday Sketchers off I went and this is what I came up with.

A pretty basic card but seeming it is for a male I did not want to go too heavy with embellishments. 

I also entering this into the following challenges:

Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Creatalicious Challenges - Ribbons with LOVE (this card is actually a valentines card for hubby)
Cupcake Challenges - Something New (As I had never used Hansel before I still consider him new)
Paper Sundaes - Circles
The Stamping Bazaar - Use Punches

Well I am now off to spend sometime with my hubby. We have lost our kids for the day so we are going to enjoy some kid free time together. 

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo

Stamp - Hansel with Flowers (on sale at Tickled Pink Stamps at the moment) 
Coloured using copic markers
Papers - October Afternoon, Craft & Black cardstock
Embellishments - Ribbons and buttons
Other elements - Faux Stitching, Spellbinders nestabilites circles and scallop circles, ink smudging and pearls
