Thanks Kath!

The fab candy I won from the lovely Kath arrived on Monday...and I couldn't resist having a little play with some of the goodies straight away. So I used some of the gorgeous papers and 3D stickers (by Crafty Bitz) to make her a thank you card...I hope it's reached her by now! Being a challenge addict, I used the sketch from a new challenge called Sunday Sketch & Stamp, with 'XMouse Ornament' by Penny Black for my main image - replacing the snowflake with a flower. The flowers are from Poppicrafts, and the ribbon is from my stash. I'm also going to enter this card for the 'Anything Goes' theme of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge...which is where I first discovered Kath's fab blog!

Lovely card Helen - well done on winning Kath's fab candy - nice to see it put to such good use already! Love how you have replaced Xmouse's snowflake with a flower - he is actually a v versatile li'l stamp isn't he, cos you could have him holding all sorts of things !
