Secret Crafter DT Card - Dutchdare

Its Saturday, Bank Holiday Weekend here in England, children off school, gorgeous weather and of course a new challenge at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge set by the lovely Gina, this weeks theme is New Beginnings. It was so lucky that I recently ordered this stamp from Pink Gem Designs as my stock of Baby stamps was non existant. Coloured with Copics and Blender Pen.
Bo Bunny Rub On, assortment of flowers, Liquid Pearls, Leaf Punch, butterfly and a bit of bling from stash. Papers are BG and Cosmo Cricket, border punch is Martha Stewart. Do pop on over and see what the rest of the DT have made, a lovely challenge for all and it would be great if you could join us.
This card also fits in with this weeks Dutchdare challenge which is Bling, I just love the new jewels I have added!

Sorry I've not been in blogland much over the last few days. We've decided to put the house on the market. I spent 5 hours in the garage on Thursday just clearing and now have the rest of the house to go threw. Children on 1/2 term for the week and I will be doing my best to declutter. Have to say the weather is looking good, pub lunch today, BBQ tomorrow and they say as high as 28 degree's here by the end of the week - YAY!!!!!
So have a lovely week, enjoy the weather and I will try and visit as many blogs as I can in the evenings, amongst my crafting as my days will be taken up.
Enjoy and Have fun!

Great card, Claire, I have this stamp on my ebay watch page, so maybe just go and buy it. Up here in Edinburgh we had gorgeous weather yesterday, but cloudy today. Our kids were off earlier on in the week but went back to school on Thursday, that is it until 2nd July. Enjoy your pub lunch and BQ. Hugs Avril xxx
