I have a rak swap this week and this is the card I am sending to my wonderful swap partner Dawn. Dawn aka Crafty kitten in blogland is such a scream, she is always making me laugh whether it be her one liners or emails. So please pop over to her blog and say hello you won't be disappointed.

I am so loving these papers I can see myself buying more from the capsule collection. My manga girl and papers were a Christmas present from my friend Susie and this is my very first one!! I have seen their new stamps over at Funky kits and I have to say I rather like them all.

Anyhoo here are the challenges I will be entering

Sketch and Stash-Sketch
Crafty Calendar- Love/friendship hearts optional
Fussy and Fancy- Hearts


stamp-Manga Girl No2 Sugar Nellie
DP's-PM Capsule collection-red hot
punched- flowers and hearts
tools-nesties and friskars template


While I was tidying up my craft room I came across a distressing tool and there was me using hubby's sandpaper a few backs hee hee!!
