Nearly a ‘Craft Dash’…

Hey there I’m back today with a quick card. I’m so happy because I finally had a chance to use a Jessi original crocheted mat and I tell you they are the sweetest, you can buy them at her amazing BLOG and if you haven’t met her yet I suggest you pop on over she is truly wonderful!

Another Craft Dash card and I was a little too ambitious today, although in my defense I would have made it in the time frame except that my Versamarker decided to die right in the middle of colouring my stroller…  panic stations (lol) what will I do….  so I diluted my new tumbled glass distress marker and painted a light covering….. but by then I was too late, but I thought I would share anyway.    I would also like to share this card with the Simon Says Stamp challenge which is Transport.  Not your normal form of transport, but it does have wheels.

Sorry I wasn’t able to catch this one on video but my mum and dad are visiting at the moment and I’m not sure that you want to hear all the ongoing background conversations.
