Say it with a Bow @ Annabelle Stamps

Morning ladies. I am back with our Friday challenge over at Annabelle Stamps. Sorry I am a bit late with this, but it has been another crazy week. For those that don't know our country is in chaos at the moment with all the strikes that are going on!! It is quite scary how a group of people can just hijack the country!! Bryce has been told to stay at home for the last 2 days because the mobs are going to schools and are intimidating the kids and teachers! Caide is away on tour in Durban and I have been worrying so much about him. It is awful to have your child far away from you when all this frightening stuff is going on. So, hence the lateness with this card. Better late than never, right???

So as the heading of this post would indicate our challenge for this week is to post a card with a lovely bow on it. For me this wasn't a difficult challenge because I use bows on my cards often. I think it just finishes off a card perfectly. And then to work with some lovely new Annabelle Stamps...well, just fun!! I used the "Thoughtful Stems" set for the image and the "Branch Out" set for the sentiment. The brown little gems on the butterflies and the gorgeous brown ribbon are also available from Annabelle Stamps! Here is my card.

I hope you will play along with us in this fun and easy challenge. Once you have created your card with a bow link it to the Annabelle Blog.

Remember you still have another week to take part in the Sketch Challenge. (Scroll down for details). There is a great prize up for grabs!!

Also stop by the Annabelle Shop to buy the wonderful new sets that were released this week!! :)

Caide is getting home this afternoon so I can't wait for that. Hope you all have a happy crafty weekend. xxx

I know, it's been a while! Where does the time go ?! Lovely card, love its simplicity! SO hard to make something simple without it being "too" simple, but you totally got it!

And I totally forgot to add that I hope things settle down soon in your corner of the world. So horrible to have to be afraid to go outside or worry about your child :(
