Challenge time...

... Hello are you having a wonderful weekend? The weather is GORGEOUS and we have a sun bathing day planned. Like you know my sister and Luca are visiting we've been out and about yesterday and today we're taking it easy. That's what Sunday are for right? cilling out and completing the challenge over at SWUS !! This week we want you to use the following: One colour card stock, one patterned paper, one flower, one ribbon and 3 brads. And here's my example

I used So Saffron card stock and patterned paper, the stamp set is the Spring Solitude level 2 hostess set. I stamped the outline flowers and watercoloured them with the ink pad and the So Saffron marker. Added three brads to some of the big flowers and lots of glitter. My tiny flower came from the Pretties Kit. I think i got it wrong with using two ribbons instead of one but I won't tell if you don't.

I also wanted to share with you my third project designed for the online classes.

A folder that holds 6 or more A5 standard cards and their envelopes. Made in Kraft, Pink Passion, Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip colours and using the crazy for Cupcakes stamp set this will take a great gift for that non crafty person to have on hand. I hope you will have a wonderful and relaxing Sunday I will see you soon with more. Hugs Monica xxx
