Touchy Feely

Good Morning Crafters. This is a card I made last night for this weeks Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge, the theme this week is 'Touchy Feely'. For my project I've used Cream Pearl Card and SU Chocolate Chip Card that has been embossed with the cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' Folder, the little giraffe image was a stamp given to my by my lovely friend Jaime and I have coloured it with promarkers, sentiment stamp is from the SU 'Best Yet' set and is stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink, to finish off I've added little buttons and some Chocolate Chip Ribbon.
Right, off to work for me, I have nothing exciting planned for today, hopefully I will get another card made tonight but my holiday to Gibraltar is getting closer, 14th May, I'm so excited! I am going on my own for 5 days to visit my sister (It was a birthday present from her) the only downside is that I'm already thinking about how much I'm going to miss the kids, I've never been away from them before really and although they will be with their Daddy, 5 days seems like a long time for a 4 year old doesn't it? I know I'm being silly and probably won't even notice me gone lol. Enjoy your day whatever your doing. x

Love how you used the swiss dots to add some texture. Really cute!

It is hard to be away from your kids but everyone once in awhile it is good to sneak away and get some much needed TLC for yourself!

Have fun on your holiday!
