Good morning fellow bloggers. What a wonderful week we have had so far! who said we never get a summer in England? The only down side for me is having to roast in an office. We have no air con and the temp is currently a steamy 32 at my desk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enough of that and on to the important matter of the new Challenge over at Diva's by Design.

Our new challenge is TAG'S.
This challenge is being sponsored by EZ Templates.
For my DT creation I have gone with the rolled pouch EZ Template.
I have a Cricut so was unable to use the SVG file so I just printed it on patterned card and cut it out.
I inked the edges of all my pieces and then assembled with score tape.
All of the bits and bobs were in my off cut tin and the metal word was free on a magazine years ago.
Thanks for stopping by

OMG I have just notice that I did not post my SFTW blog. To all my teamies I am so sorry. I thought I had scheduled it on Friday morning. I had a family BBQ to organise over the weekend so have only just checked my blog!

The challenge this fortnight is a Pink & Green / Photo inspiration.
 Our generous sponsor is Saturated Canary. 



Other Side

For my card I have gone for my Tilda stack of papers again as the colours are just perfect for this challenge. The gorgeous image is Wendy which is of course by Saturated Canary coloured with my trusty Copics's. 

I have thrown a whole host of dies at this one which are
Lala Land - Banner die
Nesties - plain oval
Nesties - Scalloped oval
Die-namics - Small and large bow die
I thought about adding some rolled roses but this was probably just a step too far so I restrained myself!

Any do pop over to the blog and check the design teams work, it is really quite stunning.

Flower bear Poppy

Good morning

It's challenge time again at Diva's by Design and all you have to do to enter is follow the theme which this week is Cute. The challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo and we have all been given an ultra cute image to play with. I choose to use Flower bear Poppy, isn't he just so cute?
I have coloured him up using my trusty Copics. I dont know if you can tell from the picture but I have tried my hand at a little decoupage with this one to give a bit more depth.
