Cake Robot

Morning Folks!
A really quick post from me today, just to let you know we have a great new sketch challenge starting over at Here Come the Boys today. Here's the sketch, created by the lovely Woo:

and here's my card using another Stamping Bella stamp which I won on ebay:

The robot is very cute but quite tiny, only about 2" high, so I used ribbons and ric rac rather than papers in the background so he didn't get overwhelmed!

Thanks for looking and please head over to the main blog to see the other fab DT projects and details of a great prize too!

It's time for a picnic...

Morning Folks!
Well I know it's Monday, but I'm in a good mood because the sun is still shining 
I'm also posting my first card as a member of the design team for Ready Teddy Go - just a bit excited here!!

The challenge this month is called

Flash, Bang, Wallop . . . what a picture!

and we'd like to see you take your inspiration from 

this picture

I've used the colours  and also incorporated the tea set too!!
Here's my card, the stamp is by LOTV, called Teddy Bears Picnic and it's another one that has been neglected for quite a while!

 I've managed to use up a lot of older bits on this card, the papers are magazine freebies, charm & doily from a friend, pearls from ebay, and the very delicate lace has been in my stash for ages, I think it came from the Art of Craft. The ribbon bow is made from a piece of ribbon off a clothing label - Yes I am a hoarder!!

I hope you'll be able to enter the challenge , our very kind sponsor this month is

My Mum's Craft Shop

The very generous prize is a £10 shopping voucher to spend as you wish in the online shop.
