Pure Innocence - Happy Mail

Last night was crafting night well, apart from the night before which I had set aside and was determined to make a card and have a little bit of "me time" but it all went horribly wrong and I ended up throwing my efforts in the bin and stomping off to watch the TV !!

My efforts last night were successful so successful in fact, I made 2 cards AND I got my sewing machine out !

Steph at Simon Says Stamp emailed me to say that "Pure Innocence" had landed on their doorstep and she had featured the card I made a while ago on the Simon Says Stamp Blog - how fantastic is that ? Well, I am on their DT but its still nice to be "showcased" isn't it ? If you want to see that card, then see it on their blog just here !!

Anyway, I was dying to make another card with one of these cutie patooties ! You can see and buy the full range at Simon Says Stamp right now !!

The DP's are BoBunny Double Dot "Shittake Dot" (very unfortunate name !!).

My Mind's Eye, Quite Contrary, Little Miss Muffett "Isn't She Lovely" - Lovely Lines paper - phew !!

The postcard is from the lovely Tammy's blog.

The image is Pure Innocence "Happy Mail" and you can buy it here at Simon Says Stamp. She has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The ribbon is from my stash and the button I bought from the NEC last year.

As you can see, I also stitched all the layers. I really enjoyed myself and couldn't stop !

I've had a hop around blogland and I can enter my card for the following challenges :
