Sketch N Stash Challenge

Hello everyone, it's a lovely Saturday night here in Smithville, we have just got back from having a nice meal out at our local club - it was very nice - but then again any time that I don't have to cook is nice hehe. Anyway I have had a lovely play day today - how lucky am I. So I decided to play along with the gang at Sketch N Stash since it has been ages since I joined in. This weeks sketch is by Kevin and I love it - I am into banners at the moment so it is right up my alley. Here is Kevin's sketch:

And here is my card:

You can't quite see the ribbon under the bow - but it is there making the horizontal strip. I have used one of my oldest stamps that has been very neglected for years from Hero Arts called Garden Gal. She is coloured with watercolour pencils and she is teamed up with Bo Bunny Ambrosia paper range. This is my second buy up of these papers as I LOVE them. The purple paper is bazzill. Then I have added  a stampin up sentiment and punch  finished with a bow and a little butterfly charm.

This is the inside view - just a couple of banners here - aren't these papers just gorgeous - so fresh and lovely!

I got my oral presentation done yesterday with all my lovely paper crafting ladies - I had a really lovely morning it was so nice to sit down and catch up with them (after the poor things where forced to listen to my talk) hehe I bribed them all with morning tea though - no food until you hear my presentation - I think I only got good appraisals cause they were all faint from hunger. hehe. Thank you ladies - you were all a lovely audience - how could a girl go wrong with such lovely smiling faces :)

Ok well I am off to go have a long shower and then bed - I am a bit uncomfortable after a few busy days although today was sitting all day - I actually find I need to lie down in the middle of the day to keep comfortable.
Ok well you have a great day
talk soon

p.s. I think I am lovin this new blogger now (had a little moment of not liking it this afternoon, when I first saw it)- I can upload and view a really big post
