Card for Loretta's challenge

Well, it's been a busy day here today and I nearly didn't get a card made, but thought I really must put the effort in when it's only week 1 of my blog!!

I had some very exciting news this morning when I looked on Clare Curd's website on DoCrafts and found out I had won her sketch challenge!! This was for the Daisy & Dandelion sketch card that I posted on here on Friday. I'm really please as I've never won anything for any of my cards before!!!

Today we went geocaching. It's a sort of treasure hunting game with a gps, a bit like the old letterboxing but you have a box to find with little toys to swap. My girls love it and it's the best way we've found to get them out walking our dog without too much fuss!! Today we went for a walk along Lossiemouth beach with some friends. Lovely day but the cache was a bit further away than we were expecting (about a 3 mile round trip across sand dunes!!). Very tiring and my youngest daughter struggled a bit on the way back -lured on by the promise of the ice cream shop!!

Still, the good thing was they went to sleep with no bother at all so I could go and make this card!!! This is for Loretta's sketch challenge on the DoCrafts website. Hope you like it!

Products used:

The stamp is from one of the Papermania snag 'em duos, stamped with black stazon and coloured with whispers brushmarkers.
Papers (including the sentiment) from the new CCSR Big One paper pack.
Ribbon - Papermania (I've had this for ages and not got round to using it. It came with butterflies and flowers on but I took them off)
Adhesive stones - Papermania lilac stones - I've coloured them with a pink permanent pen
Edges chalked with fluid chalk - Colourbox in Charcol and Versamagic in Cloud White.

Thanks for looking!!
