2 Sketches for you...

I promised myself I would join in with more challenges after Christmas and I am trying to make extra time for this. I have managed to do a quick card for 2 Sketches for you this week - although after seeing Kath's fabulous card using scraps I was a bit ashamed of my effort!

pp - BG Urban Prairie
brads - papermania
ribbon and rub ons - doodlebug

And over on JB forum Bex challenged us to use up our old papers and scraps, so this thank you card uses up a piece of BG gypsy paper which I have had for years. The green blooms needed using up too so I plonked them on too.

Well I am approaching week 2 of the stash ban and so far so good, although it was really difficult not to order anything from Poppicrafts sale - some real bargains to be had :o(

Back tomorrow with my tag.
