Stampin For The Weekend DT Card & I Have Candy!

Challenge 8 over at this weeks Stampin For The Weekend and it has gone so quick. Thankyou to everyone who has taken part, its great to have your support. This weeks challenge is "Masking", one of my favourites. I have used PB, Pink Toes and coloured with Prismas and Sansodor. Then masked the whole image and used a Magnolia Stamp for the Background. This had been coloured with a mix of Prismas and Spica Pens. The backing paper is BG Wisteria and added lots of pretty embellishments to blend with the summery feel. The leaves I spritzed with Glimmer Mists but I dont think it shows to well. Dont do many purple cards myself but I love the feel of this card and of course the MS punches really do make a difference.

Hope to see you again over at Stampin For The Weekend, my DT buddies again have some lovely cards for you to see and our sponsor this week is Windrush Cards and Crafts, they have this gorgeous House Mouse Stamp to offer the lucky winner of this weeks challenge.

I had made an insert for this card using the Extreme Designer Inserts Disc from Bearly Mine Designs, but there is a paper jam that I just cant see so will have to take another look. I prescheduled this card and it was gone midnight. All I can say is, it must be a very small piece of paper as I cannot see anything there.

On another note, it was my daughter, Jessica's 14th Birthday yesterday. Nawty mummy forgot to put it on my blog, as I did for Zoe last week but I think I've got away with it. We all went to Pizza hut when hubby got in from work and as I type the 3 of them are on the singstar, sounds more like the cats choir - LOL.
Remember my Candy, it will be fixed at the top of the page and is open to everyone.
