Stampin for the Weekend DT Card - Challenge 6




First I must thank all you lovely peeps who left me lovely comments for my anniversary yesterday. We ended up going out for a meal last, very nice.

Now back to this weeks challenge over at Stampin For The Weekend and this weeks super theme is Strawberries Dipped In Chocolate. Simon Says Stamps is sponsoring this weeks prize and you could win a $25 voucher to spend in their shop.

Meet "Curtsy", my new SN stamp. She has been coloured with Copics, Red Spica Pen and White Inksenntial Pen. All the papers are from the wondeful Designer Extreme Volume 11 available from Bearly Mine Designs.

I have opted for a DL card for a change and have embellished with flowers made with the Retro Punch,the border is MS Daisy Punch and added 1 butterfly with the same papers using the MS Butterfly Punch. I have chalked around the image and added red flowers on the corners. The scrabble tiles are from stash but I really must buy some more, so if anyone knows where they can be purchased in the UK, please let me know.

The rest of the DT have made wonderful samples for you to view. I do hope you can come join us with this weeks challenge.

Thanks for looking
Clairexx

This little Duda stamp is so sweet and you've coloured her perfectly, she looks so dreamy! Your papers and the way you have layers them, esp with the MSDL punch is fab. Beautiful flowers and the scrabble tiles are fantastic!
