DYSU #51 - Stripes

Good Morning lovely Bloggers,
I hope you have all managed to finish your Christmas preparations and are relaxing now!!!!! I am off to my Daughter's tomorrow and won't be home until mid next week so please forgive me if I don't comment on your blogs for a while. I promise to catch up when I get back.
Our challenge this week at Do You Stack Up? is STRIPES - striped paper, striped design, striped ribbon or even striped flowers -  :0)

Our lovely sponsors this week are:

The Craft's Meow - Winner's choice of 1 stamp set

Prairie Fairy Designs - $15 Gift Certificate

I was sent this gorgeous stamp from The Craft's Meow called "Little Frieda's Daisy" which comes with three sentiments - one of which I have also used. This card really was a labour of love - the scalloped card has been constructed from a circle and smaller punched circles stuck around the edges - took me ages!!!! (Please Santa - can I have a Grand Calibre for Christmas - hehe). I also decided to go overboard with the flowers.

Medium - Promarkers and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
DPs - Papermania Capsule Collection - Aqua
Flowers  and ribbon - stash
Carsdstock - stash - white coloured with Distress Ink

Hopefully you will have some time for playing over the Christmas holiday and we really would love for you to join us for this challenge. Do take a look at the rest of the Design Team's work - they have created some beauties for your inspiration.

That's it from me for now. I will be back later with my Digi Doodle Shop DT card.
