Nap Time

Hi all,

Finally back with a challenge card. I treated myself the other day to a couple of new stamps & papers from Trimcraft. The stamps were from the Pepper & Friends range and I got the Funky Vintage Papers. I have also had my eye on some Polychromos for ages and finally took the plunge and got me some off ebay (very good price too!!). So today I have had a little play with my new stuff, I stamped up my image and knew that I wanted to to cut it out in a circle. So when I came across the Papertake weekly challenge sketch it was perfect.

The image is called Nap Time, Papers are Funky Vintage both from the new trimcraft ranges. Flowers are Petaloo with Papermania Gem Brads, MS Branch Punch, Craftwork Cards Sentiment, Tiny gems are Papermania ,Burgandy Tulle & pearl pin from my shop.

I have used the fabulous FF decoupage, teamed them with some velum & delicately patterned papers and added a bit of handstitching and flowers. I also made the matching boxes to send them in.

Treated Myself !!!

OMG!!!!!! I am so excited have just treated myself to a new car, been on about having one for ages. I sold my car when I gave up work 4 years ago and have recently begun to wish I hadn't. I really like the new minis and have been finding reasons not to have one. Anyway today my hubby saw one at my sisters garage, took me over to have a look and before I knew it I was signing my life away. Abbie loves it and keeps saying it will be our girly car and the smelly boys are not allowed in it!!!!!!

This is my new baby!!
