A Spoon Full of Sugar for my friend!

This is a card I made for a friend at work who left us yesterday for pastures new. I was so upset to see her go and I wanted to let her know how much I admire her and would miss her. So this is the card I made and it fits this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge which is to use flowers or floral papers on your creation!

I coloured this adorable Elzybells image in with my whispers pens and I paper pieced her dress with the patterned spotty paper that I also used in the background, which is from K&Co sparkly sweet pad. The grass effect was created using a green ink pad. CS is from the coredinations range, which I embossed with the spots and dots folder before distressing with an emery board. The sentiment is Hero Arts, Prima flowers and gem brad from my stash. The glittery adhesive dots are some that I bought from QVC.

Sorry I haven't been around your blogs much these past few days. I've been having a busy time of it at work lately (I am working this weekend) and my university course is also starting to become more demanding. I currently have a 4,000 word and 6,000 word assignment to do along with a 4,000 word Masters proposal in preparation for my 15,000 word Masters Dissertation next year! :-( I must have been crazy to go back to university again. This is definately the last degree I do! So unfortunately, all this doesn't leave me as much time for my beloved crafting and blog hopping. So please be patient with me and I will try my best!

I hope you're all having a great weekend whatever you're up to.

Hugs, Vicky x
