Roses On Paper # 19 - Punches.....

Good morning folks!

The sun is shining, my washing is out on the line, I have a cuppa by my side and all is good with the world today ;o)

Here is a card I'm entering into the Roses on Paper challenge as it fits in with the theme of using punches on your card. I'm hoping it may have arrived in Germany today at the new home of my lovely blogging buddy Heather, as I've sent her some images to tide her over until her missing Magnolia Summer kit arrives. The punches I've used are the little butterflies and the stamens in the centre of the flowers. I've also created some punched borders with a MS punch. I've coloured a Pixie download with Poly pencils and added lots of Stickles to the wings and flower which you can hopefully pick up on the photo. I've used MME papers and Prima flowers, the rest is bits from my stash.

I mentioned a few days back that I had been asked to join Squiggle Stamps Design Team by the lovely Tracy. There is now a dedicated blog and you can see who else has been chosen to join the team......... a fantastically talented bunch of gals me thinks and I will enjoy getting to know them all. Squiggle Stamps are a small UK based stamp company launched in Summer 2009, and carry a unique range of cute and whimsical stamps designed by a talented team of illustrators. There will be an official launch on September 1st when there will be new designs to feast your eyes upon and a candy giveaway. I can't wait for my first DT pack to drop on the doormat (hopefully later today) so I can set to work and show you some of the lovely images soon to be available ;o) Don't forget to become a follower of the blog so you don't miss the launch party!

Well the upshot of being off work and having time to craft is that my stash is now in a right state, so I'm off to have a mega tidy up and then I'll be back to catch up in blogland.

Toodles for now and have a lovely day!

Hugs Tara xx
