Allsorts Challenge: For a child

Here is my card for this weeks Allsorts challenge which is a card for a child. The stamp is from Pink Gem and I fell in love with it when I saw it. I almost put googly eyes and a pompom for the nose, but opted for glaze as my googly eyes were a bit large! I used my promarkers to colour him and added a bit of diamond stickles. The papers have been in my stash for ages and the sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

While I was tidying my table I found this lovely image that I had coloured with promarkers ages ago. It is a free download from here. I quickly made it up into a card and I'm rather pleased with the result. Very summery and warm! I also found half a bar of Galaxy which put me in an even better mood!!! The weekend has got better and better as I have bought Brenda's promarkers from her and arranged to meet up with her on 5th December at Sir Stampalot's open day. We had a lovely chat on the phone  - it feels like I've known her for years! It's just like Christmas already!!!

Hi Sally. Love your reindeer, he's just great. No wonder you fell in love with him. The greeting fits the card to perfection.
Your flowers are gorgeous too. Very Summery and cheerful.
Well done for buying Brenda's pens, you'll make great use of them I'm sure, enjoy meeting up with her.
Mmmmm Galaxy, now where did I put that secret choccy stash.......
Have a great week and thank you for your lovely comments as always.

Love your "table find" too. Surprising what we find when we have a clear up.

Lucky you gaining Brenda's promarkers - good job you tidied that table up ready!

In a hurry as usual, pressed post before I had finished Sally.

Was also going to say how great it was speaking with you and so looking forward to meeting adn having a real good chat - must make a mental note that Andy and Janice want me to do some work as well.

But seriously, they will be so pleased to meet you as well, I have already told them you are coming.
