Sweet Stampin DT card

Good morning Sweet Stampers and my hopefully scheduled post....having a bit of a problem with some browsing!!

You may have already heard the news that I have taken over running the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog with Abi....I am so excited!!

Now I would say I am quite good with computers and I know what I'm doing and I don't let anything beat me....I keep at it til it's fixed....well on the first day of my new role, actually not even the first day, I think it was probably withing a few hours of accepting my new role....I deleted lots of stuff that we needed. I thought I was doing a good turn and was tidying up the blog just a tad and hey ho...I made a boob...a big boob!! Abi to the my pc was still away getting fixed, Michael let me borrow his laptop but only for about an hour at a time and he forbid me to download anything to do with glitter, pink, fluffy or cards on it....anyway between the 2 of us and recalling Fluff for a favour too, it's all as good as new!!

Anyway this week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin is this fab sketch by Jo....

I absolutely loved working with this sketch, I don't normally do ovals as I don't have an oval die so I have to cut the oval by's a hit or a miss and sometimes I distress the edges, that also helps to disguise the hand cutting but I thought this one wasn't too bad so I left it as is and it just seemed to work for me and here is the end result....

Have I taunted you even more with these flowers Lisa??I have used MME Stella Rose papers, the image is Hippie Chick from the Simply Sassy range at Sugar Nellie which I coloured with copics. The flowers have been cut with a MFT flower die-namic it!! I added some pearls to the centres (made them with a pearl pen)....oh and I added some stitching too...still practicing that!! Pop over to the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog and check out the creations by the rest of the team.

Gorgeous card Fi, love the colours & my little cherub says " Brilliant stitching, I love it" She is quiet a harsh critic so you are highly complimented here! And now she is telling me off because I said she is a critic, she said it sounds like cricket... sometimes you just can't win huh!

P.S. What's life without a big boob or two!!!
