I'm Baaack!! - Yaayyy

Morning everyone.  I'm back in blogland after an unexpected break as life got in the way - as it does sometimes.  Gosh it feels like ages since I last posted.

Today I'm thoroughly happy to bring to you another fabulous challenge from Totally Papercrafts Challenge Blog.

This week it the turn of my lovely teamie Lols to set the challenge and she's chosen a theme of


BUTTONS AND BOWS

a nice easy one for you :-)

Here's my little effort using one of the newly released Whimsy images by artist Chrissy Armstrong and available to purchase HERE.


I've used BG papers and an unusually large amount of embellies for me lol.  The ribbon, buttons and flowers are from my stash.  The leaf punch is one by Leone Em and I've coloured with copics and stardust gel pens and glamour dust and flower soft for that extra something!!

We are sponsored at TPC this week by Squigglefly one lucky entrant will win a choice of 5 digi images from the store :-)




The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration and you can check them out HERE.  Please visit their blogs to leave some love - they really do appreciate it.

I'm having some fun myself and entering this into the following challenges...

Sundays with Chrissy - Buttons and Bows
 Creative Card Crew - Bloomin Marvelous
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Open Challenge
Paper Playtime - Ribbons, Buttons or Rhinestones
Fab 'n' Funky - Use a Digi Image

Thankyou so much for stopping by, I have missed you all and will catch up on my blogging this week.

Ta Ta for Now and have a great wekend.
