Bashful Badger


Thanks for all your lovely comments about my migraines and i'm glad to report, i have not had one since last Thursday - yipee, but i still don't know where the week has gone, i think the Spring air has got to me as i have been cleaning !! Today we are off to Arlington Bluebell Walk And Farm Trail, as it's so pretty there and when you have finished doing the walk charities do the teas and cake in the cafe.

I don't know about you, but i so love Badgers, but unfortunately for me Penny Black only did Badgers in the beginning (1997), so it has taken me a while to purchase this sweetie - 'Bashful Badger - 712J', i was looking for some papers that would compliment the image and i remembered these delightful ones : Bo Bunny - 'Isabella', the flower is : Tim Holtz - 'Tattered Florals', the lace is : The Ribbon Girls and the pearls are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - where SSW2 is up to Sketch No: 52

Fab N' Funky - where Challenge No: 256 is 'Lace'

Bunny Zoe Crafts - where the April Challenge is 'A Recipe - Anything But Square - Pink, Lace and Pearls'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Cute As A Button' - i went for Cute

Deep Ocean - where Challenge No: 102 is 'Shaped Cards'

Die Cut Divas - where the Challenge this month is : 'In The Garden'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Sam your Badger is very cute, and know I didn't know the PB did Badger's either. Love your pretty design papers and that wonderful flower embellishment totally perfect finishing touch to your card. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your talent with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

P.S I also suffer from Migraines and have done most of my life, got that from my Dad. But I just purchased new Bamboo Pillows call Bambillows. They have taken me about a week to get use to them but I'm not waking up with Migraines in the mornings and I don't toss and turn any more with my pillows at night. Could be something to look at. Take care and I'm glad your feeling a little better.

Gorgeous papers this week! Perfect together. I agree, neither of us should clean! I gave myself a runny nose when I vacuumed the entire house. Too many dirty feet on little boys over here! Thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us, Sam.
