Hi, My name is Melissa. I'm a married working mum of two with a hectic schedule. I began papercrafting in 2004 with my SIL Jo, . I have always loved rubber stamps and now, through Jo, I have a soft spot for digis. I also love scrapbooking.
I started my blog in October 2010 and have been lucky enough to have joined several Design Teams in that time.
Hi everyone, its Saturday so that must mean its time for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. I have been soo looking forward to posting this card!! It's set by my lovely teamie Cathy who wants to see monochrome - tones of one colour plus white. I LOVED this challenge and opted for browns with white. I'm really chuffed with the end result. I've used one of my new stamps and had a friend in mind who, like me, LOVES cocker spaniels. She hasn't been well lately, though has just acquired a new puppy....... who is running amok lol! I couldn't resist placing some little paws trampling in the flowers.
I have added glamour dust to the flowers and some little clear stick pearls (from stash) onto his collar for a bit of added bling.
