The result of quite an unproductive day!

Well, Mum's boss would like 2 cards, the same but in different colours for her two grandaughters who are turning 3 (not sure when)!
I'm rubbish at little kids cards, as I don't know many that young and the only ones I've made were for boys (which is easy at that age and harder as they get older)!

I gave up, in frustration as it wasn't "enjoyable" any more....will try again tomorrow and hope that inspiration comes.
Instead I made this card, for someone my age and did what I wanted to do!

I believe the stamped image is called "Delights" from Penny Black - another of the little gifts from Lisa that I have picked out to get creative!
The brown stripy paper is from a Daisy and Dandelion paper pack, and the pink polkadot paper is from a magazine freebie. The sentiment is from the new Docrafts Creativity mag CD-ROM, with an X-Cut butterfly.
Challenges I'm entering:
Sketch & Stamp #19 - lovely sketch (I have turned it around)
Allsorts Challenge #35 - Brown & Pink
The Crafty Pad #54 - Animals
A Spoon Full of Sugar #87 - Lots of Layering
Papertake Weekly - Pretty In Pink
