Stampsfun-creativity challenge

Good afternoon everyone, the spring like weather has gone already, its been windy and rather damp here in Bedford. A good excuse to stay indoors and do some crafting.

The card today is for the stampsfun-creativity challenge blog which is 'birthday' this week. I am using one of the Gorguss girls stamps 'New Heights', I just adore these little girls and really support the artist as she has an spinal injury which limits her ability to draw, so all that is left are the images she has already drawn. She has an amazing talent and I urge you to have a look at her shop and support her and her family.

Colouring medium; Copic ciaos
