I'm such a Doofus!!

It was my turn to set the Challenge over at Sophisticats this week, so Sunday night I put the post together, added all the links and the DT cards, set it up to post on Monday morning & went to bed feeling very pleased with myself at having it done it all and totally forgot to post my DT card on here! It was only when one of my lovely commenters said they couldn't find it did I realise my mistake - so thanks Lorraine!

So here's my card, a little late admittedly! My sketch & theme was to go clean & simple, something I'm doing more of (inspired by the amazing Emma, who does it perfectly) and came up with this card. The little flowers are from the SU! set Fresh Cuts, stamped out in Pink Passion, Only Orange & Real Red, the sentiment is from the same set, and the papers are some digi-papers I've had in my stash for ages. I embossed some lines on it, not sure how clear they are in the piccie and that was it. Funny how such a simple, almost empty card can take so long!

So that's my card & if you want to pop over to the Sophisticat blog to join in with this week's challenge, you still have a few days left!

Hee hee what are you like - doh!

Never mind, it was worth the wait - super duper card, I love the extra special touch of the embossed lines - really classy.

Thank you for your kind words too :D

My first go at setting a post "in the future" didn't work the first time but it did the second. What a lovely card you have made.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog and entering my blog candy. Your name will be added to the hat and I wish you all the best. I will be in touch again after the closing date if you are lucky enough to be my blog candy winner.

Best wishes
