Blackberry Fool

This is a card that I have made just for fun, I am determined to use some of my many stamps that have never seen ink - this one is from the Joanna Sheen Country Kitchen collection.


I coloured my image with ProMarkers and the papers are from the Nitwit Collections Flower Shoppe collection.  I used seam binding for my bow and the button and twine are from my stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations August challenge - Anything Goes
Fantasy Stampers Challenge 16 – Buttons & Bows
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge 48 - Anything Goes Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - Something Sweet
Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft-Dee-Bowz August Challenge - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.

Update on my dad... Oh wow power in prayer or the power and determination and will of an old man to keep on living....his smile today was priceless and he actually ate a bit of porridge and soup for me today. Yesterday we were told to tell family and have his Last Rights given by the Priest, he was not able to open the Golden Gates... I have decided to come home this evening after spending all night with him and try and relax....and this is how I relax....thanks for your sweet thoughts, I value my friends here...♥aNNie
