Stamp Something - to say thank you!

Our challenge for this week at Stamp Something is 'something to say thank you' and we're sponsored by Funky Kits so there's a fab prize for our lucky winner :o)



I've used one of the adorable Sherbet Pip images Candy Pip and coloured her with a combination of promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  Please ignore the folds in her dress!!  I still need some practise with creases and made a bit of a mess of it... I'd already drawn in the wall/ sky/ grass scene though, so I didn't want to waste what I'd done!  Gingham paper is Papermania, cardstock is from Papermill Direct.  The little flowers were cut with a Stampin' Up punch, buttons from my stash and sentiment is computer generated.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
We're just having a quiet day pottering around at home today, so I'll actually get some time to catch up with commenting.  There just aren't enough hours in my days at the moment... roll on 5th September when the littlies go back to school lol!
