One for the Kiddies

Morning everyone, gosh its lovely and sunny here in East Yorkshire today - and I'm late - again lol.  I'm going to be taking a little break from some of DT commitments after this week for a while due to health issues.  Nothing to worry about, just need to reduce things down a bit for a while and will hopefully will be back to normal in a couple of months.  Am off for a bit of pampering later today to get my hair coloured, that should cheer me up lol no end - goodbye grey hairs rofl.

Today I have a card I done several weeks in advance for Totally Papercrafts Challenge sponsored by Simon Says and DSB, (please check out the challenge blog for details of prizes on offer to one lucky winner).  As if that wasn't enough we are so excited to have a very talented addition to our little team, the lovely Vicky has agreed to join us.  Please take a look at her creations and leave her some love - I promise you cannot fail to be inspired by her stunning creations.

"One for the Kiddies"

Here's my offering using one of my favourite images from Meljen's Designs "Party Time Cat" (I actually think they are all my favourites lol).  Melissa's gorgeous designs are available exclusively from Whimsy Stamps HERE.


The funky papers are from a 6x6 BG pad and I experimented with my new nestie for this one,  I LOVE the effect of the interwoven contrasting scallops.   I can't get enough of using this nestie!!

I'm also entering this into the following challenges.......

Everybody Art - My Favourite Thing
Fab 'n' Funky - Delight in Your Digi
Simon Says - Animal Antics
Do You Stack Up - Patterned Paper

We do hope you can join in the fun with us at TPC, can't wait to see what you create.  Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs
