I am a busy bee....

Well good morning bloggers and once again my scheduled post but not because I am working's round 2...I'm off to the SECC again!! Donna my friend was definitely not going as she didn't need anything but I think when I told her about my buys on Thursday...she feels she is missing out!! so I will be en route as you are reading this...will I will be if you are reading this now!!

Today's challenge over at Sweet Stampin' is lots of layers, now I just love layers so this was right up my street.

We have 2 sponsors this week, firstly Sew Sweet who is giving one lucky winner a £10 voucher.

We also have The Stamp Fairy who are giving a $10 voucher.

And we have our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen who is also giving a £10 voucher.


For my card I have used Lenny Bee....isn't he just the cutest?? I coloured Lenny with copics, the papers are Country Drive from Echo park which I have layered. I also distressed the layers too and added stitching. The flower was cut with a sizzlits daisy die and I finished with the message from PI, oh and I also inked up the edges of each layer with some TH DI too....hope you likey!!

Hi Fi, great card - love the image and your button flower. The colours are just wonderful as well.

I'd have a go at stitching as well, if the machine wasn't broke and I knew how to fix it!!

Hope you've had even more fun at the show today.
