Sketch Saturday #89: Hope & Grace - Snuggle

Hey everyone!

Today over at Sketch Saturday it's the wonderful Ria's turn to set the sketch, and this week we are being sponsored by a New Canadian Scrapbook Manufacturer called KIKI ART:

I have used my brand new TGF HG Sunggle stamp and my brand new Bow-Easy bow tying template that were both bought from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie!  I've wanted this stamp for as long as I can remember, and I am so glad that I've finally got it.  She so reminds me of our dd, who is soft-toy MAD, and will not sleep without cuddling at least five, LOL!!!

And you do NOT want to be without the fab Bow-Easy, as it helps you tie PERFECT bows!!

Do pop along to Sketch Saturday and have a look at my wonderful team-mates' fabulous cards - you won't be disappointed!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Sweet Stamping Challenge ... #12 Floral Frenzy: My DP is flowery, plus I've popped a few flowers on to embellish (the Sweet Stampin Challenge blinkie and link are in my Fave Challenges page).
2. Pile It On ... Challenge #4 Enough of Winter Colours: Pile it on want to see no winter colours this week, so I hope my springy, summery card fits the bill!
3. ABC Challenge ... N is for New: ABC want to see you use some of your new stash - I've used my brand new stamp and Bow-Easy!
4. Simon Says Challenge ... Photo Inspiration: Simon Says has a photo of a pink rose for inspiration this week, so I used this to choose my gorgeous MME DP which has pink rose-type flowers on it!
5. Cute Card Thursday ... Challenge 98 Spots & Dots: I've used spotty DP!

Have a great weekend, and thanks for popping by!
