My favourite....

Good morning folks....this will be short and sweet this morning as it's the Gala Day...woo just getting ready. First I have to share Pippi with you...The challenge over at Sweet Stampin' this week is "your favourite stamp". What a hard decision this was as I have many stamps that I really love and I have a bestest favourite which is a Christmas one but I didn't feel like making a Christmas card so I decided to use Pippi Longsocks from Sugar Nellie...she is well up there in my top few!

I used papers from Papermania - Portobello Road and Making Memories, I stitched each of the layers and distressed the edges, the flowers and buttons are cut from MFT dies, I added a twine bows through the buttons, the flourish is cut from a do hickey die, the message is from LOTV and the stamp is Pippi from Sugar Nellie which I coloured with copics....went with the red, white and blue theme since it was the Jubilee next week.

Pop over to the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog...this week we are sponsored by Letraset, who are giving away a set of pens and we also have our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen who is giving a £10 voucher.
