Nice and simple - swingin by to say Hi!

Here's a card I've made with another sweet image from My Favourite Things - Pure Innocence - this one is called Tree Swing.  Isn't he cute - he reminds me of my boys and the things they love to do!!
So this is a nice and simple card - no challenges involved here.  I've used Kraft cardstock and have stamped a doily image along the bottom in Sahara Sand ink.  I've also sponged the edges in the same ink.
I've added a strip of pattern paper by Basic Grey and I even managed to sneak in some lace trim.
The image is stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa - i'm loving using this cocoa ink at the moment - have you tried this colour? - and then I've coloured in with Copics of course!
The sentiment belongs to the same stamp set and I've used SU punches. 
Here's a closer look:
And here are the Copic markers I've used:
Speaking of Copic markers - this card I entered for the Mad for Markers challenge was drawn out as a winner.  The prize for this is a 12 pack of Ciao's + Xpress IT blending card.  Thanks Sammi - this is such a generous prize - you can check out her store here: Mad for Markers Store!
And this scrapbook page made the People's Choice Award from the Out of the Hat Scrapbook challenges.
Tommorow they will have a new challenge, so I'm looking forward to seeing that one.

These little surprises have certainly made for a happy day, as well as a wonderful Pilates class tonight - that always makes me feel great!!

Hi Chan - just dropping by! You are sooo clever, your cards are so adorable! I actually framed the one you sent me when Giles was born and it hangs in his bedroom - it matched perfectly with his quilt set! Hope you are all well. Luv Michelle xx
