Stamp with fun #134–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you had a brilliant weekend, but as I always say on a Monday morning, it went too fast!!  The boys are on their half-term holidays from school this week so at least I can have stress free mornings getting ready for work!  The only drawback with them being home is that they eat everything in sight and make such a mess!! 

I’m here this morning to share my card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge and we have a wonderful sketch by Andrea-Emmi41 for you to use.  Firstly here is my card:

This card was made for an order that I had from a lady at work.  She only specified that she needed a 40th wedding anniversary card and that the couple liked dancing.  As soon as I saw this image at Karen’s Doodles shop I knew it would be perfect.  It was a bit touch an go for a while as the shop was down but thankfully it re-opened just in time!  The image is called ‘sweep me off my feet’ and I coloured it with promarkers and flex markers.  I used some gorgeous ribbon with tiny hearts on each side but unfortunately I covered most of it up with embellishments lol! 

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

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

OSAAT challenge – emboss it

Creative craft world challenge – numbers (on my sentiment)

Fab ‘n’ funky challenge – distressed or torn

4 crafty chicks challenge – marker it up

Shelly’s images challenge – show us what you got

Crafts 4 eternity challenge – use at least 1 metal embellishment (my heart pin)

Totally papercrafts challenge – layer upon layer

Our creative corner challenge – fabulous faces

The pretty little ribbon shop challenge – anything goes (2nd entry)

Paper sundaes challenge – use at least 2 of black, sparkle, distressing, flowers (flowers, distressing and sparkle)

I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create.  I would like to welcome my newest followers Zenita, Nina & Claire *waves hello* – thank you so much for following me – I hope you enjoy my creations and will call back again soon.  I’ll be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge but until then thanks for stopping by.
