Stamptacular Sunday Challenge # 41

Greetings Everyone... what a beautiful Sunday evening we're having. Nice and cool for a change. Hope you've all had a wonderful day.  Firstly, thanks to everyone who has been visiting my blog and leaving the most awesome comments, you girls rock!  I am so inspired by your messages, thank you so very much.

Sadly this is my last card created during my annual leave, which has now come to an end. It's back to the old grindstone tomorrow!!  I've had such fun creating cards until late at night and blogging and chatting with all of you... it's been wonderful.  Now my crafting time will be restricted to evenings and weekends only...  ;(

Here is my entry for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. They have a wonderful sketch to work with, I was truly inspired to make a card this evening, even though I hadn't planned to.  The images were coloured in a while ago and I've been waiting for an opportunity to share them with you... this is it!  I really hope you like this one...

Because of the theme I've chosen, I'd like to dedicate this little card to my new friend Catherine at Coin de Catherine.  She's a French lady living in the UK. She is such a honey and so talented and her comments really inspire me to push the boundaries.  J'espère que cette petite carte ne vous fait pas trop le mal du pays mon ami!  No, I do not speak French, Google Translate is an excellent tool!

And the inside complements the outside...

Thank you for popping by... I really enjoy all your visits, so please continue to do so.  I'll be around to visit you soon... tons of hugs, Sharon x

Oh Sharon, what can I cay ? I was feeling so happy as I was reading your new post and so sad at the same time because I can't give you a hug to thank you... I surely don't deserve all the nice things you said about me... Your card is gorgeous... The colours are so nice - I do love the blue, white and red touch ! - and the little Tilda is such a cutie... And no it didn't make me feel homesick !!! Lots of hugs and smile from Catherine
