Challenges for the Weekend

Good evening folks... here's wishing you all a super weekend.  We finally have cool weather in Cape Town and I was freezing my butt off today, so Autumn is definitely on its way. We usually start unpacking the cardigans after the Easter weekend and start wearing closed shoes.  Whilst the rest of you are looking forward to Spring and Summer, we'll be posting pics of the storms which are still to come our way!

As most of you who follow me know, I work fulltime, so my crafting time is limited to evenings only (and sometimes after a hard day's work, it's the last thing one feels like doing... the mind wants to, but somehow the body just doesn't want to comply). So... I have quite a bit of catching up to do.  Made 2 cards this evening but can only post this one, as the other challenge was for last week (silly me!).  Here's my little number for the Cute Card Thursday challenge, which asks for Dimensions and the Paper Take Weekly challenge which provided the sketch.

The image was stamped for me by a fellow South African. I think it may be a Penny Black, maybe someone can just confirm. I have a whole page of them, so you'll be seeing them on a few of my new cards. Coloured in with copics and added some glitter seeing that she looks as if she's about to hit the night spot!!!  The base of my card is bazzill and the DP with hearts comes from Paola's shop, the other is a double sided paper from the valentine paper range.  The lovely heart buttons were sent to me by Jacque in the USA - I love them and am using them sparingly!  The sentiment is a stamp from my collection.  The pearls are from Charmaine's shop in De La Rey.  She just got them in yesterday and I went to purchase some last night.

I really like this little card, it makes me smile.  I hope it does the same for you and look forward to reading your comments, should you wish to leave one... happy crafting, hugs Sharon
