Stamp With Us Sunday Challenge...

Hooray! I was so surprised to have made the Stamp With Us fave five from the brill challenge last Sunday, it's a fab feeling! I just have to fathom out how to add the "Fave Five" blinkie to my blog now!
I've also been really lucky to have had a bit more of a chilled weekend and have been crafting lots!
I decided to join in again with the next SWUS Sunday challenge.
This was the inspiration sketch:
And my card:
I've used some SU Summer Picnic DSP with some Real Red. The flowers were from the Pretties Kit and I've added rub-ons to the centre of the flowers, I think these are K&Co. My sentiment is from the Oval All SU Set used with the SU oval and scallop punches.
Thanks so much for looking and I hope you've had a relaxing sun filled weekend.

I've been away for so long...

...and I have loads of catching up to do! Firstly I want to say a HUGE thank you to both Alex and Aimes for nominating me for this blog award. Thank you girls so much. You're both hugely talented and I love reading your blogs so I really appreciate this
I've been having lots of fun making a card for the Stamp with us challenge. This is my first attempt and I really enjoyed it. The recipe challenge for this week is to use 1 patterned paper, 2 ribbons, 1 flower and 1 button. For my colour combo I've used Regal Rose, So Saffron, Old Olive and Whisper White. My pattern paper is Stampin' Up 'Tea Party' DSP. My flower is from an SU 'True Friend' stamp set and the sentiment is SU 'Circle Of Friendship' set. I've used some gold elastic cord and Regal Rose Ribbon with a designer button from the new mini catalogue. I've also added some pink and gold crystals for the centre of the flower. I'm off to have a good old blog-hop now and catch up! Thank you so much for looking and hugs xx
