Sweet Stampin DT Piece & Challenges.....

Hello everyone. Hope you are well. Yesterday I had a spur of the moment and jumped in my car and headed over to the Make It Show in Farnborough. Totally unplanned and of course managed to spend a few pennies. Met up with the lovely Jacqui which is always a pleasure. Today we have a new challenge for you over at Sweet Stampin. This week its my turn to choose the theme and I have gone with
"Oh So Girly".
Decided on a notepad for a change, bought a few from Asda a while back and this stamp fits it perfectly. Stamp is "Ivy" from Tickled Pink Stamps and coloured with Copics and Pencils. Flowers are Prima & Wild Orchid, Lace from Stash and the Leaves cut on my new Pink MM Slice. I have Added Crystal Stickles and Distressed the edges of the Bazzil them dabbed over with an Adirondaak Gold Dabber. Used one of my favourite Wood Mounted Stamps - Fields of Sky.

This is one of 2 posts today. I will be back later with my CES DT Card.
In the meantime a few challenges;

Do You Stack Up - Anything Goes'
KB Cute Monday - Use Glitter
Stamps R Us - For the Girls'
One Stitch at a Time - No Square Cards
Cheerful Stamp Pad - Anything but a Card
remember to pop back later and I have candy at the top of my blog.

Hope you had a fab time in Farnborough. Love your altered notebook, and something that you can keep for yourself rather than give away. I must get round to doing one, then again I say that about a lot of things. What I really should do is a list. First thing is get off the computer and make something, lol. Enjoy the weekend.
