You choose over at Sweet Stampin!

Happy weekend everybody and I hope you all have a great weekend lined up!  What better way to start the weekend than with a challenge?  This week over at Sweet Stampin there is a new challenge and this time you have a choice!  Either choose to use the sweet sketch or have sparkle, spots and stripes on your creation.  OR better still do both to earn brownie points!!!  I managed to get my brownie points with my second guest designer card...

 
 



Yes, I know I only used this little cutie Little Sylfie from The Paper Shelter earlier this week, but when I saw the sketch I just thought organic and mushrooms!!!  Don't ask me why, I really should sit down now...

I hope you have been inspired to play along this week and, if not, you really should take a peek at the Design Team creations - they are fabulous!!!  You can see them all here.

Okay, that's it from me today - thank you for visiting!  I will be back tomorrow for my guest designer card for Cupcake Inspirations!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper pad
Stamps: The Paper Shelter Little Sylfie, Whimsy Friendship Ticket Sentiments Stamps (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Mediums: Copics, Stickles glue (on mushroom)
Accents: 4mm flat backed iridescent pearls (from Quixotic Paperie here), jute ribbon, Sew Easy floss (from Quixotic Paperie here), buttons and felt from stash
Tools: Nestabilities dies, Fiskars border punch, Martha Stewart grass border punch, Quickutz label die, mini butterfly punch

Oooh I am so loving having you as GD this month. This is another beauty hon although I admit to being baffled as to how you looked at this sketch & got organic & mushrooms (maybe I need to sit down lol!). Anyway it's a fab image & I really love your flowers too.

What a gorgeous take on our sketch, Mary J. I love the papers and the fact that your cards are just as lovely on the inside as they are on the outside. Tracey x

Hi! Mary J...fabulous papers, loving them, and a sweet adorable image.She's quite sassy really..lol..love the flowers and fantastic colouring...Napier in the mild 20c - 24c in the day, still sweaty weather most days, at night drops to about 12c. Just right. Got the frosts to come yet, but always a beautiful day after that.Mid winter get up to 14c and down to 6 or 7c at night.. perfect.

Luv CHRISSYxx

Really great card. I love the colour combination. You've inspired me to have a go at the challenge myself. Hopefully I will get the chance between now and my son's birthday party tomorrow.

By the way weather has been quite nice down here in London but slightly over cast.
