Sweet Stamping, Flutter By Wednesday,Crafts and Me, Sweet Pea Stampers


It's so lovely to think I now have five days off from work  and I do so hope to get some crafting time in there!!  Just finished this card which is one of the fab Sweet Pea images which seem to be going down a storm at the moment!!
I coloured it with promarkers taking the colour challenge from Flutter By Wednesday which is blue, green and white.  Well I've used navy blue with green leaves and white flowers!  ( You also have to use angels, fairies or butterflies!)  I've also used the sketch over on Sweet Stamping  which was brill to use (I've just rotated it to suit my image shape).  Finally, two new challenges this week, firstly Crafts and Me are asking for fairies or wings.  And there's a new challenge exclusively for Sweet Pea stamps, which is asking for gold - of course my golden sun!! The paper is BG and I used my MS Trellis punch, Quickutz flourish die and a ticket punch for the border/sentiment.  Flowers and pearl flowers are from stash.

I've also received an award from Coops ( big smiles and thanks, Nic) which I'm going to put up soon!!  Been a big fan of Nic's cards for a while so go and have a peek if you don't love her work already!! I've also been very remiss - this has reminded me that I got another award a while ago which I didn't pass on!! Bad Baker, Bad!!!
