Stamp with fun #117–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  Well it was a scorcher here yesterday and I dried lots of washing, which I know is really boring but I was very happy!!  As I’ve mentioned before I’m not a sunbather but I really love to go to work in the sunshine and not have to worry about a coat or an umbrella.  Let’s just hope it’s not too clammy though (can’t have it all though can we lol!). 

Anyway I’m here this morning as it’s time for a brand new challenge over at stamp with fun challenge.  This week we have a colour theme for you to follow – “lilac and cream”.  Now I’m not really a cream person, much prefer white so I may have cheated a little and used more of an off-white than cream!  Here is my card:

SWF #117 - lilac & cream

SWF #117 - lilac & cream (close up)

I have used a super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Molly Spencer’ and she is part of the ‘Spencer Family’ collection which is one of the offers of the month for June.  You get 4 family images plus a bonus of 4 doodle images too – definitely fantastic value for money.  You have to be quick though as there are only a few more days left to grab this set at such an amazing price of just £2.99.  The papers are first edition from the ‘daydream’ paper pad which is available at Crafty Emma’s store. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us. 

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

A gem of a challenge – sketch

The crafty pad challenge – bold & bright or soft pastels (I’ve gone for soft pastels)

Dream valley challenge – ribbons

Paper sundaes challenge – choose 2 from: purple, gems, wings, paper piecing (I’ve used purple, gems and wings)

Everybody art challenge – anything goes

I love promarkers challenge – anything goes (3rd entry)

Scrapbook sisters challenge – anything goes

Stampavie and more challenge – butterflies

4 crafty chicks challenge – clean and simple (no more than 2 layers)

Rainbow lady’s challenge – use a digi

The poodles parlour challenge – come fly with me (my punched butterflies)

Simply create challenge – things with wings (my punched butterflies)

Stampin’ for the weekend challenge – my favourite things (promarkers, DSB images, gems)

Mark’s finest papers challenge – make it sparkle (gems on butterflies)

Ok, so that’s it from me for now, but I’ll be back in a little while with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  I really do appreciate all the comments you leave for me and I’m sorry that I cannot always return them.  I am trying to manage my time a little better and hopefully this week I can be a little more organised with my visits – fingers crossed.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

I just noticed you seem to have the same taste in men as me - David Tennant and especially Eric from True Blood, can't believe we've got to wait till next year for Season 4!
