Bestest Friends.

 Good morning. What a lovely treat I had yesterday - my Bestest Friend treated me to a very relaxing facial to cheer me up following my recent minor OP so I thought I would make a card to say thank you.

I treated myself to this 'Gorjuss' stamp last Friday (asked DH to take me on the way home from the hospital following my OP - well we were passing my favourite local craft shop so it would have been rude not to call in lol!!!)
Unfortunately I had one of my arms in a sling so not much 'fell' into my basket!!!
I decided to ink her up, and taking inspiration from the following challenges:

Cupcake Crafts - Single Layer Card
Crafty Emma's - Woodland Creatures
Flourishes - Card for a Friend

This is what I came up with:
 I really really enjoyed making this card - just simple stamping and colouring! I did heat emboss the image with clear EP before colouring.
 Other challenges I would like to enter:

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - There was a Little Girl
I Love Promarkers - Clean & Simple

I think I could be making a whole load more of this style of card.

Thanks for taking time to pop by.
Have a wonderful day.
