Loving Wishes........

Good morning folks!

Here is the card I sent to my friend and teamie Kim who is celebrating her birthday today.......... Happy Birthday matey (waving)...... hope you have a lovely day ;o)

I used my new Sarah Kay stamp which I am totally in love with, she's so sweet! I think I might have to get a few more from the new range soon. I've decided to enter the following challenges with this card:

Paper Play Challenge - Pretty Pastels
Simon Says Stamp - Buttons, Bows and Bling
Lili of the Valley Challenge - Here Comes Summer
Charisma Challenge - Girly Card With Flowers

I really enjoyed using papers from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush collection, along with lots of Prima flowers and QuicKutz leaves. You might just be able to see that I sneaked in a punched Martha Stewart fence too and the grey flowers around my image were added using a Tapestry Peg stamp. Those scrummy buttons are something I've had in my stash for ages..... not really sure where they came from!

I'll be back on Saturday with my Basic Grey DT card..... until then enjoy the rest of your week and take care!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
