Crafty Cardmakers - Spot and Strips xxx

Afternoon all
Where has the sun gone?? Its so dull, dark and terribly clammy, guess that's our summer tho!!
I spent yesterday reading and then sort of planted some of my home-grown bedding plants, but very unsuccessful so hubby was left to do them! We still have 2 full trays of Livingston Daisy's, just need another few tubs hee!

Thanks again to all your kind comments! I do promise to be good and rest! Gotta really or no craft shop hee

Now on too my wee Dt creation!
This fortnight at Crafty Cardmakers we have a good little Challenge for you all

"SPOTS AND STRIPS"

All you gottta do is have some sort of Spotty or Stripy papers or creation on your wee project! I sort of cheated as I had my wee card made a few weeks ago, but that was good with me being so accident prone all the time hee





I used my new papers and an old Sugar Nellie Image coloured with promarkers, used my Martha Stewart Border Punch and my wee Rose flower Dies!

I would like to enter this into the following Challenges
C.E.S Challenge - Anything But Square
Sweet Stampin' - Something Old, Something New (old -Image, new - papers)
Daring Cardmakers - Something Old, Something New (old -Image, new - papers)
Fab'n'Funky Challenges - Summer Lovin'

Check out the Crafty Cardmakers blog for some amazing Dt inspiration!
Will hopefully be back tomorrow

Oh no, more gorgeous Echo Park papers I really like... I keep seeing people using them and they are so nice but I have so much paper already I just can't buy them.

Love how bright your card us and the colouring on the stamped image is brilliant.

Hope your wrist gets better soon and although it must be frustrating don't overdo it as it will only take longer to heal in the end.....

Love Mandy xxx
