I'm Back :)

Wow, that was a BUSY half term! We took the littlies to Disneyland Paris for the week, which was wonderful but SOOOOO TIRING!! Thanks so much to my teamies for covering for me while we were away. Of course Mr Blogger was a very naughty boy and ignored my scheduled posts for whilst I was away (grrrrr!) so I'm here this morning trying to update everything!

Yesterday saw the start of a brand new challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD with the theme of FRIENDSHIP. The DT have all used the wonderful Roshell Friends with Basket, available from The Crafty Pad Designs in both coloured and uncoloured versions.  I used the coloured version for my card.

Our sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrap

and one lucky winner will receive this fab stamp as a prize:

It's called Best Hugs by Alisa Ramirez.

I printed blue gingham straight onto card and made a pop-out stepper card. The image was cut using a lacey circle nestie on yellow gingham. I printed one of Debbie's sentiments directly onto the card too. I added some yellow grosgrain ribbon and punched flowers using white and yellow gingham with card candy dots at the centre (coloured to match using Promarkers.)

 I inked the edges to finish. I really hope you can join us for this week's challenge.
I would like to enter a couple of challenges with my card:

I also made a project for last week's Crafty Pad challenge which was Halloween, but it didn't post as Mr Blogger wasn't playing nicely! Here's what I made:

An icicle treatbox for Halloween sweeties, using the Halloween image from The Crafty Pad Designs.
