Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge #18

  Morning everyone, we're in for another cracking day here in East Yorkshire, more glorious sunshine is heading our way I believe - whoo hoo, just makes me wanna go off camping again lol.  

Time now for another fantastic challenge from Magical Crafts - am I alone in thinking that time is flying by? It doesn't seem  a fortnight ago the last challenge was set!  Huge thankyou to everyone who took part in the last one - we had a ball checking out all your cards for the fellas out there.  This week, our challenge is.......

"   F L O W E R   P O W E R "

which means we want to see flowers on your project be it as all or part of the main image, or as embellishment. Here's my take on it.....


Wood mounted stamp - Magenta
Card Stock - Stash
Black Stazon Ink
Colouring Medium - Starburst Stains from The Stamp Man
Embossing Board - 1 VictorianaSet 1 Filigree from The GlitterGirls
Gems - Local Haberdashery Store

Our sponsor this time is the wonderful Heidi at Simon Says Stamp.

Check out the challenge blog for details on whats being offered as a prize.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges;

Creative Craft Challenge - Stamp it Up
Crafty Creations - We Want to see you Shine
Crafty Ann's - Embossing
Allsorts - Embossing

If all goes to plan then this scheduled post should be out  whilst I'm in the land of nod, due to night shifts I'm working at the moment so ssshhhh, keep the noise down rofl!    I do hope you can join in this challenge, I'm really looking forward to all your flowery makes.  Remember, we are a multi craft challenge blog so we like to see any craft techniques as long as you stick to the theme. Please check out the challenge blog HERE and see the awesome creations from the rest of the Design Team, they've done an amazing job with this one.


 I commence my new DT role for Whimsy Stamps' new digital team  this coming week - I'm sooo excited!!  They will be releasing another set of scrummy digital images on Thursday, 1st July and I'll be showing you sneak previews from Monday!!!


Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
