You inspire me!

Yes, you do and tonight I made a card using some of the tips and techniques which I have seen on various blogs, following my regular stalking of some lovely bloggers (no injunctions please, I am perfectly harmless).

To name-drop a few of the crafty ladies I took the inspiration from:

Petra for her unceasing dedication to using up scrap paper
Anne for her ability to turn her hand to virtually every handicraft known to man/woman
Anne Marie for her sweet smelling, fresh faced charm and charisma (and clever tips and tricks)
And finally Birdie for her never-ending support and guidance. She is my Guru :)

There are many, many others whose blogs I follow, and I'm sorry if I haven't mentioned you tonight, but hey, I have a very short memory, and can only remember four things at a time.

This card was made up using some free papers which came with a magazine a couple of months ago, and have languished in a box ever since, the bunting formed part of the free papers and I just cut it out and stuck it on. Anne Marie made a card this evening where she stamped a flower straight onto her BP, so I blatantly copied that idea!

I would like to enter into the following challenges:
