Sketchy Flowers

Good morning to you all and I hope you had a wonderful weekend, they sure fly by don't they?  We had a lazy one not doing much really so I had time to make a card following the sketch at Sketch Saturday, here it is:

Items Used:
Image: Digi Stamp Boutique Sketchy Flowers
Markers: Copics
Papers: Sara Schmutz Nursery Rhymes and Coredinations
Dies: Spellbinders Rectangles/Deckled Rectangles (not sure what they are called) and Spellbinders Labels (not sure which number)
Other Items: Stickles, Card Candi, Square Punch to make fishtail, corner rounder, Scattered Straw Distress Ink

Challenges I would like to enter:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Bearly Mine - Spring Flowers
Digital Tuesday - Springtime
Shelly's Images - April Showers bring May Flowers
Dilly Beans - Flowers
Allsorts - A Passion for Flowers

I have to take my car into the workshop today to get repaired.  I was parked in Tesco and some idiot parked next to me scraped the whole side of my car when he reversed out.  He then very kindly drove off without owning up!!!  Luckily a very kind man was passing by and took the details down and left them for me, nice to know there are some decent people around.  But to top it off the person who banged my car at first denied it - can you believe it???  Anyway the insurance has sorted it out with the help of the witness statement and the man finally owned up so it won't affect my no claims bonus!

Well I better catch up with all of you and then I am off out! Thanks for looking today, take care xx

Love the colours you have used in this one Susan. They are so fresh and clean and give a lovely spring feel. Sorry to read about your car. Great that the witness was prepared to help as so many people don't want to get involved nowadays.
Have a good crafty week.

I HATE supermarket car parks.. if it ain't bad drivers of cars it's bad drivers of trollies who leave scratches and dents on your car. Am Glad yours is sorted - how bad not owning up - but then we shouldn't be surprised should we? Some people do not care about other's property. Love this card. Beautiful.

Beautiful card Susan.
I can't believe people have the cheek to drive off when they have damaged someone's property, I have seen someone hit a parked car before and they just moved their car to a different place and then went shopping. I also took the details and gave them to the owner when they returned. I'm glad someone was there to witness it for you too.
Hope it doesn't take too long to repair
Hugs Kelly
