Cute Card Thursday!

ASproject1a1009

I have been meaning to take part in a card challenge all week ... but with sooooo much excitement ... I kept starting cards and then struggling to finish them!

Anyway ... I saw the Cute Card Thursday challenge ASProject11009 this week was charms ... and I thought about my Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp instantly ... I think the image is really very charming. Now I know that is not what they mean ... so I have added a couple of charms to the card too :0) I had you going there did n't I?

I often wonder where people's inspiration comes from and I picked this paper ... purely because it is by October afternoon and it is ... an October afternoon ... so I thought ... Cool!

The best thing about Pro-Markers of course is that you can match them to more or less anything ... hence the apricot and cool aqua dress :0)

It is lovely and sunny here by the way ...  Have a great afternoon!

love your card, its so cute. And you made me laugh because I once used some paper from the basic grey "fusion" collection (which is purpley colours) to scrapbook a layout about my car which happens to be a purple fusion! LOL Oh the irony - no one else found it funny!! LOL
