My motivational card:)

I was cleaning up my craft room floor yesterday after a glass jar of flowers plunged to a crashing death from the top of my cupboard:( but while I was down there picking up the glass and flowers I spotted something caught in the lower shelf and out popped a lovely set of Penny black stamps that I obviously had mislaid. I had never even used them!! But I was so excited it inspired me to craft for FUN instead of fulfilling orders. So this is one of the cards I came up with:)  I am back with a crafting buzz this morning..isn't it funny what gets you going again lol. 
As this card is for nobody and no particular occasion I didn't add a sentiment.

Image - Pennyblack teddy and company stamp
Papers - Doodlebug designs
Embellishments - ribbon and nestie circle
Medium - coloured with promarkers

I would like to enter this into
Penny Black Saturday - clean and simple (hope this counts)
Oldie but a Goodie - teddy bears picnic
Aud Sentiments - no sentiment
Totally Gorjuss - not square
My Mum's craft Shop - anything but square
Allsorts Challenge - teddy bears picnic

I also have a new follower to welcome today. Hi TINA, thanks for joining me:)
