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
