.......£3.92. I shook the envelope out in case a zero had fallen out inside but no such luck! Lol Chris and I howled with laughter, all those pipe dreams for less than 4 quid!!! I'm in two minds to keep it and frame it to remind me not to count my chickens in future, I suppose you could say that e.on sent me a REALITY CHECK!!!! lol
Anyway enough with that nonsense, time to share a card with you. It's my father-in-law's birthday on Saturday (Valentine's Day) and I bought some Crafter's Companion S.W.A.L.k stamps sets from Every Craft's A Pound about 6 months ago. One of the sets I bought was a 'paw'fect pal set called "Prickly" and although the sentiment is a Grandpa one I loved the main image and it reminds me of my dad-in-law so I had to use it.

The sky was coloured in using Dovecraft 'Brights' chalks and the sentiment was stamped onto Kraft card using my usual ink. The square brads are Making Memories and the baker's twine wound between them is from Dovecraft. The paper is what I had left over from making Les's birthday card on my last post. I added some Dovecraft 3D effect clear pearls onto the boots and the hedgehogs' noses to make them shine.
I hope you like my latest card - they'll be another Challenge on the Passion for ProMarkers blog tomorrow so once I've made a card I'll post it here on this blog.
Until next time - keep crafting!
Love and crafty hugs,
