Kindness ...

Friday seems to have whizzed around so quickly ... one minute I was finishing work for half term and a week's holiday and the next thing I know it is over with only the weekend to go!!  I've had a lot of family commitments this week so not quite as much time for crafting as I had hoped.  I've also spent quite a bit of time procrastinating!!!

This morning I woke up full of resolve to get on ... so I've done the weekly food shopping, planned dinners for the next few days, washed three loads and finally made a card!!

Today's card takes inspiration from the challenge at "Less is More" - it is back round to the One Layer challenge this time with the theme to include a Stem - they also have a call out for new Designers to join the team.  I dream of being good enough to join a design team ... but don't think I'm there yet! 

This is my card for the challenge:

I used:

PaperArtsy JOFY 11 stamp set
Stampin Up Lotus Blossom sentiment
Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves
Versafine Onyx Black
Lawn Cuts Stitched Rectangles
Perfect Pearls Spray

I'm entering the following challenges:
