Stamp with fun #104–DT card

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA since last Monday but I’ve been having computer problems and I only got my computer back from the shop on Friday.  Apparently it was a fan issue and now I’m £40.00 poorer – but boy did I miss it lol!  We’ve all become so dependent on them that it’s like our right arms have been cut off when we don’t have them – I think most of you will agree with me haha!

I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and are raring to go for the brand new challenge over at stamp with fun challenge.  This week we have a brilliant sketch by Tina46 to use.  Here is the sketch:

and here is my card:

I used a new image (well new for me anyway) from Lili of the valley and kept the layout really simple (as it’s for one of those ‘difficult’ males lol!).  I think the image is just perfect for a retirement card, which is an order for a friend in work.  I only added die-cut buttons and some pearls and voila! 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples for your inspiration once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.  You certainly kept us busy last week with over 200 entries.  I hope you will be able to join in again this week. 

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Pile it on challenge – cutie patootie

Sentimental Sunday challenge – cute and cuddly + sentiment

Freshly brewed challenge – 2 or more embellishments

I love promarkers challenge – go dotty (my paper)

Top tip Tuesday challenge – show me those buttons

Scrapbook sisters challenge – anything goes

Stampavie and more challenge – for a boy

Southern girls challenge – add an animal

Paper cutz challenge – use 3 patterned papers

Phindy’s place challenge – all about animals

Really reasonable ribbon challenge – one for the boys (I’ve used twine in my buttons)

Simply create challenge – do it yourself

Totally papercrafts challenge – cute and cuddly

CES challenge – die-cut crazy (die cut buttons)

Sweet stampin’ challenge – come rain or shine (my little bear is relaxing in the sun)

So as it’s Monday it means I’ll be back later with my DT card for the cupcake craft challenge so I would love it if you could call back and check it out.  I would also like to say hello to my new followers *waves* – Deb and Sam welcome to my little blog and thanks for following me.  Ok, so until later thanks for stopping by.
