Sunday Sketch and Stamp #20 & Cute Card Thursday #97

Hi girls, believe it or not it tried to snow here again yesterday. Fortunately there was not much and when the sun eventually broke through it disappeared as quickly as it arrived, but it was very cold. I hope this wasn't a warning of things to come. I'm looking forward to this weekend and month beginning because there are a few blog hops on the go not the least of which is the blog hop being run by Crafty Sentiments to launch a new range of Valentine stamps by Kathy Hare. Why not join in.
Well today's card is for the Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge who gave us a wonderful sketch and Cute Card Thursday where the theme was "Bloomin Gorgeous". I have inked up one of my new Magnolia stamps called "Jam Tilda". I have coloured her using my Polychromos Pencils. I am building up a fair range of these and really enjoy using them. The papers are a Bazzil as the base and "Eva" by Basic Grey. I used a new Martha Stewart punch to create the border out of Bazzil and the ribbon and embellishments are from my stash of goodies.
It would be great to know what you think of this card so if you can spare a minute please leave me a comment. Reading them is one of the highlights of my day. I value each and every one of them.
Thanks for dropping in on me today and do have a great day whatever you are doing.
