One Small Kiss..........

I'm sorry for my disappearance, I have been away for a few days but I'm back now and I make a solemn promise to those of you that are still with me (and I know I've lost quite a few of you along the way), that from now on, I'm going to be back to my blogging best!
And so, let's get to what you're all here for...the card! Barbara has come up with a wonderful sketch this week over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and here's my go at it:


Image - Teddy Bo coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Promarkers (with stickles on the wings!)
Papers - Panduro and Papermania pink card.
Dies - Magnolia Doohickey border and tag dies.
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Sentiment - Inkadinkadoo (reads: One Small Fight can lead to War, But One Small Kiss can lead to Peace. Libby Groll, Age 9).
Other - Ribbon and Hearts from stash.

I really love the kid's quote sentiments from Inkadinkadoo, sometimes they really pull a card together and 'out of the mouths of babes' and all that, eh!?

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:

And I think that's about it. I hope you like my card - since I discovered Spectrum Noirs, I've been having great fun colouring up loads of images and I've even managed to combine them with my promarkers - I'd especially love to hear what you think of my colouring. Thanks for visiting! Bye for now.............................xx
