Big Hugs

Hello peeps,
I've had a few mad spurts of energy thanks to the steroids & I can't keep still so I've been on a mission to clean everything & have given my craft room a long overdue blitz. I've been ruthless & given away loads of stash to the nursery where Jode worked for her college placement, & I've discovered so many brand new stamps, paper pads, etc that I had forgotten about, it's that bad I am sure I could survive for the next 2 years with only buying coloured card stock for matting, shocking lol.

Today I have a card to share that I made a few days ago for a dear blogging friend who I wanted to give a big hug too but as we live so far away from each other she got stuck with one of my cards instead lol.
Ingredients -
Image - So Sorry, Saturated Canary
Medium - Copics
Papers Memory Box
Pearls - Hero Arts
Gems, lace & pin from stash
Flowers - Kort & Godt, Wild Orchid & Prima
Tools - MS Cherish PATP, Nesties, Magnolia Doo Hickey swirl & heart swirls, Cheery Lynne butterfly dies, MS butterfly punch
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Saturated Canary - doilies, Make It Monday - anything goes, Simon Says Stamp & Show - anything goes
Thanks for stopping by
