Stampavie and More Challenge 41
I don't think I have ever been quite so productive with my card making. I don't know what's got into me - although I did have to give myself a bit of a talking to along the lines of "there's no point buying more craft stuff if you don't actually sit down and use what you already have".
I love this sketch from Stampavie today.

and here is the card I made following it (more or less) - I haven't added a sentiment as I want to wait and see what I use the card for.

I was back in my comfort zone making this card as there is no DP. I always panic when faced with using DP and have to make myself use it.
I got some new toys over at The Range last night which I have used - the new X-Cut butterfly punch (the larger butterfly) and another Fiskars border punch.
It's nearly time for my lad to wake up from his nap so I had better finish up on the computer for now.
Thank you for looking, I appreciate it as I do all your lovely comments.
