Yes, I am managing to find time for some challenges again now that I am back to work!!?? How that figures I don't know. Anyway, Hels sets both these challenges and Sunday Stampers this week was "Flowers". I have used the new Stitchels stamps, created by none other than Hels herself. They can be bought from Artistic Stamper and they are Helen's first attempts at designing rubber stamps so congratulations to her, I love them!I have stamped four flowers and two butterflies, coloured them with glimmer chalks from Dovecraft and cut them out. I arranged them on the card, some on foam pads and other just with Sticky Dots, then stamped the greeting using Studio G alphabet stamps.
In My pocket theme this week was "ribbons". I have used papers from the Glitter Stack from DCWV. I bought this during my first ever visit to the Range while visiting down South. It is a simply gorgeous collection of papers, yum, yum! The ribbons and embellishment are from a scrapbook kit by Brenda Pinnick and the message on the front of the pocket was part of a stamp. (I notice the a friend of mine also used this idea, promise I didn't copy you Heidi, I had thought of it before I saw your pocket).The pocket is held closed with a chipboard photo anchor and brad, also from the Brenda Pinnick kit.Thanks you Hels for two great challenges and thanks to everyone who pops in for a look
