This time my card was made using a lovely digi stamp from Bugaboo, which I printed 3 times and decoupaged for a bit of depth. I have also dragged out my nests and a gorgeous embossing folder from Crafters Companion and I have added a sprinkling of glitter as it is a special occasion.
Finally I made sure to use colours to match the wedding invitations so it would fit with the colour theme for the wedding.
Once again, there are a few challenges that I would like to enter:
well that's a very quick post from me as we are about to head out for a BBQ. Have a happy Sunday everyone!

However, it being July and past the half way point in the year, our crafty minds do tend to start looking towards Christmas because we need lots of time to get our mojo going.
So here's a card that I put together using some very traditional Christmas colours. The papers that you see are digital ones from Bearly Mine and of course Humphrey is from Crafters Companion.
It took a little while to colour this one as there are quite a lot of elements and colour changes involved, but it is well worth the effort as the final image is just adorable.
So there are a lot of Christmas challenges around this week, and here are a few that I would like to enter:
Thanks for stopping by today.

Everything that you see on this example, apart from the green matting card, is from the NitWits set, and the beauty of that, of course, is that everything matches just perfectly :-)
I actually made this card for easter but, as with everything else in life, my best laid plans turned in to a last minute panic and I didn't have time to make a whole batch of stamped cards.
So I grabbed my PC, jumped in to Serif, and hey presto - all the ingredients for a 6x6 cards fitted neatly on to a couple of pages. I printed the duck three times so I could make him stand out a bit, and he was really easy to cut out which made the whole process nice and relaxing!
I am going to enter a few challenges with this card and here they are:

I think there cannot be too many girls in the world who did not dress up and shuffle about in their mum's shoes when they were little……I know I definitely liked to try on my mum's shoes and dream of when I would e big enough to have high heels of my own!
For me this Angelica and Friends stamp is just the perfect image to take you back to the carefree days of a life without responsibility!
So, as you can see I have added a few girly embellishments to this card too - pearls, a flower and some ribbon, I have have gone for a very different colour scheme to my usual and that all seemed around the orange backing paper that you can see. This actually came from a Wild Rose Studio Milton pad which I love. i had originally torn the paper out to use for something else, but didn't in the end, so I decided to go outside of the box and use it on this card instead.
The polka dot paper came from a scrap from a Polka Doodles Cd, and the blue just happens to match the tiny flower centres on the orange paper.
After that it was just a case of finding the right Spectrum Noir colours to match and there you have it!
So - I would like to enter some challenges today and these are as follows:
Well I hope this card has brought a few happy memories to some of you. :-)

Apparently it is the hottest day of the year , so far, today - so we couldn't have picked a better dy to launch our new challenge.
For my card I have dug deep in to my old stash and found this great 'Diva' stampp from Joanna Sheen which, I think, is just perfect for a bit of flat colouring…….when you want to colour but don't want to faff around with shading!
It's also unusual for me to add sentiments to my cards, but I just had to add this one as it just says it all really. Now that the summer is coming along we really want those weekends to last don't we?
There are lots of summer related posts over at the Crafty Little Fairies blog with a surprising range of themes, so it is well worth a little look for some gorgeous inspiration.
Meanwhile, I am going to enter in to some other great challenges as usual, and here they all are:
Thanks for visiting and I hope you will pop over to Crafty Little Fairies to join in with the fun.
