At it again, thought I was going to have a break today


Today was going to be a day when I didn't make any cards but like any addicted cardmakder I got the inspiration to start creating very late, currently its 2.32am. My husband and I are  waiting for the Socceroo's to play in the FIFA world cup, its a big game and we are both determined to stay up and watch Australia play and hopefully win.


I have to admit that when I first saw this sketch I was completely stuck and wasn't going to give it a go but then decided to work with it and put a card together. I kept the card simple focusing on the quote and the beautiful patterned paper.  The scalloped paper already had stitching on it so all the hard work was already done for me,  I really don't think I would have had the energy to sew so late in the day.

The challenges I have included-
Kazan's sketch #55-2 sketches 4 U
Anything goes-Fresh Brewed Blog
Anything goes-Cowboy Sunday Stamp'en Challenge
Ribbons and bows-Whoopsi Daisy Challenge
Vintage-Challenge up your life
Stitching, ribbon, oval shape-Our Daily Bread
