A Just Because Card - A Hug Is Worth A 1000 Words

For some reason I seemed to have a little crafting time on my hands this week and so I got the chance to make a couple of extra cards.
I love using the Hannah stamps from The Pixie Cottage and this one of Hannah on the stepping stones is such a lovely one.

Challenges:

Crafty Creations - Butterflies
Creative Inspirations - Sketch
A Crafty Little Place - Blue, Pink and Green
Charisma - Die Cuts
Crafty Catz - Buttons and Butterflies
Character Cafe - Glaze
Mad For Markers - Use Pink Copic's
ECP - Girly
Your Next Stamp - Bold, Bright Summery Colors
Alphabet Challenge - Q is for Quotes



Card Recipe:
Image - Hannah With Stepping Stones
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Cosmo Cricket DeLovely
Butterfly Punch - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - KI Memories





I added Glossy Accents to her boots and the water to give a little more impression of the splashy fun I feel sure she's having!
I hope you liked this one and be sure to come back tomorrow for a cute Back to School creation.
