Hello everyone. I'm having a craft day so I may have a few posts today. It's a bit of a sad day for me today as it's the 9th anniversary of losing my first husband in a tragic accident so I'm trying to keep myself busy.

Here's the first card I'd like to share with you today.

The card is A5 in size with backing paper from Woodland Folk. Lumpy has been cut on the cricut from the Pooh and Friends cartridge and has a Purple Centura Pearl oval behind him (Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large). I've added a strip of white lace with a strip of purple ribbon on top, both from my stash. The flowers are from Docrafts and the buttons are some I've been hoarding for years. It's good to be using some of this stuff at last. I haven't added a sentiment so I can add an appropriate one later when I want to send it to someone. 

I've based the card on a sketch for the Critter Sketch Challenge #108. 
I'd also like to enter it in Glitter Geeks week 12 - Disney,
 Scrapbook Sisters card challenge 76 - Anything goes
and Crafty purple frog challenge 37 - anything goes

I hope you like my card. Thank you for visiting. Your comments are always appreciated. Happy crafting.
