A Quick Card/Whiff of Joy Autumn Kit and Blog Candy

Can you believe its the weekend again? and the children have now finished school , oh yes, no more school runs for six weeks, heaven!!!! I hope you are all having a good weekend. We have had a barbeque today with two of Jasmines friends and my nephew. The day is almost over and i havn't managed to do any crafting yet!! hopefully that will be remedied over the next hour or so.

I made this card yesterday using a digi download. Isn't this bear just adorable??? I have coloured her using my pro markers.

As you can see ive gone slightly overboard on using the fabulous Martha Stewart Punches, both of my favourites on one card!!!

The sentiment and hearts have been glossy accented, another one of my favourite products at the moment.

Ribbons are from stash, and i have no idea where the papers are from, sorry!
I don't know about you but im struggling with my conscience at the moment. There are so many gorgeous stamps being released and i am finding it hard to justify buying yet more of these beauties, when i already have a pile of stamps sitting on my desk uninked!!! please tell me im not the only shameful crafter in this dilema!!
This leads me on to the fact that the lovely Whiff of Joy have their Fall kits up for pre-order!

To celebrate the pre-order of the Whiff of Joy Fall Kit, the lovely Katharina has 2 sets of this kit to be won in her blog candy. You have till the 26th July to enter. Go over to Katharina's blog and see for yourself.
Well my lovelies, i hope you have a wonderful weekend, with plenty of crafting. Looking forward to visiting your blogs in the week.
Big hugs Linda x

Love your card Linda it's sooooo cute, you manage to include so much in your cards but they never look cluttered.
I'm with you on the stamp front, I have a few uninked stamps in my drawers, I just never seem to have enough time to do all the crafting I want
