Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Here is a card I made for Wendy's sketch challenge on F/Book.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I had been after the Appl Blossom card kit since seeing it advertised in my stamping magazine.
Hubby was having one of his no spend times so I was having to sit on my hands, and bite my nails as I really wanted this.
A good blog friend suggested buying in the supermarket with my shopping,
so he wouldn't know, but every time I looked there was none to be had.
Till last week I spotted one right at the back of a shelf.
So my card is my version of Wendy's sketch from the Apple Blossom kit.
Stamped the flowers with izink ink, and used a Crafters Companion glitter pen on them, and of course the butterflies are from Wendy our team leader.
The pale card is actually a very light peach card which looks cream in the photo, and is the other side of the orange card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I am always so happy to read your lovely comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

I really like the fancy way you've interpreted this challenge with the wonderful edging. Also love the bright hot color combined with the sheen of the cream papers. Your lovely flowers always add such elegance to all your cards, and of course - you make the insides beautiful too! Have a lovely weekend, and hope you can be cool where you are. TFS & Hugs
