Good morning folks!

Boy I'm on a roll this week, you can tell I have some time off work...... here I am back with another creation! This time I've gone vintage for the Simon Says Challenge which is Coffee and Cream...... such a lovely colour combo and it just felt right to go with this Stempleglede beauty. I've decided to enter the DT call as I love the challenge and the girls on the team are all so nice.... one or two are already on the Basic Grey team with me ;o)

I used a mix of papers on this one.... Basic Grey Archaic and Papermania V&A mainly. The flowers and leaves are Prima and the Amore rub-on is by Melissa Frances. The rest of the items are bits and bobs from my stash.

I'm entering the following challenges with this creation:

CES Challenge - Spots and Stripes

Stamptacular Sunday - SOS (SomeOne Special)

Creative Inspirations Challenge - Distress

Creative Inspirations - Stripes

This topper is currently for sale on EBay here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the start to your weekend ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
