DYSU Challenge #71

Good Morning All,
Well Louise and I are back from our Create & Craft cruise and what a brilliant time we had.  Fantastic service, wonderful six course meals and partying every night!!  The craft classes were brilliant, as were the demonstrators who all worked really hard.  We received some wonderful project packs from Docrafts, Hunky Dory, Beaders Companion and Debbi Moore (to name but a few) and the Create & Craft presenters who went were great fun and so friendly. We would definitely do it again :0)  Pictures will be posted soon.

Anyway, enough waffling about me.  It's Thursday again and that means it's time for our next challenge over at Do You Stack Up? and this week we want you to Add A Flower - simple!!

And for this challenge our lovely sponsors are....

Inspired Stamps -  $15 store credit

Digi Darla - Winner’s Choice of 5 Digis

The Greeting Farm - Winners Choice of 1 Clear Stamp set

My card this week uses this adorable digital image from The Greeting Farm called Kissy, Kissy.  I think I may have gone a bit OTT with the flower though - lol.

I love The Greeting Farm images - they are such fun and so easy to colour.  I have added glitter to her dress but it is not showing up too well in the photo. I am still trying to find the perfect place to take photos in my new craft room.

Medium - Promarkers
Papers - Butterfly Garden from Wild Rose Studio and Papermania Capsule Collection
Flowers, brad, pearls, ribbon, lace, bow and doily - stash

Right, that's my little piece of inspiration for this week's challenge. Do take a look at the rest of the Team's fabulous work and I hope you will join in the fun. There are some fab prizes up for grabs. Before I go, I must let you all know that after much deliberation, and taking into account the differing time zones for our International Design Team, we are going to close the DYSU challenge a day earlystarting from this week. To enable our team to get round to the last entrants, and to give everybody a fair chance, we are now closing the challenge on Tuesdays at 5pm Mountain Time. This will enable the D.T. to get round to visiting all your creations, in good time, and leave you some love :-)

Hugs and Happy Crafting
Denise xx
