I recently discovered J & C Creations who as well as having an online shop and Blogs, also have a warehouse which is open on the first Tuesday of the month and is just around the corner from me! I popped up there recently and found a huge range of all sorts of products, a veritable wall to wall Aladdin's Cave of crafting heaven. Unfortunately funds dictated that only a mini splurge was allowed, however I will go back and have a MEGA splurge ASAP!! One item I did pick up is this oh so cute stamp from Wild Rose Studio, I got so carried away with all the pretty pastel on this card that I clean forgot about adding a sentiment! I didn't want to to start fiddling about and ruin the layout, so I've left her as she is!

I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday
