We had lots of gorgeous entries to Sue's Sketch :-) the winner of the cute Happy Hopper stamp donated by Simon Says Stamp has been published on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge blog, so pop over there to see if it was YOU !! :-)

The theme this week is,,,


We are being sponsored by Paula at Pollycrafts and she will be giving a set fabulous digi images AND she is giving all of our readers a 10% discount on all orders this week :-)

Paula gave all the DT the choice of a free digi image to use :-) I chose this lovely Baxter with Tulips ,,, isn't he cute :-) Thanks Paula :-) x x

I coloured the image with copics and added my compulory stickles to the tulips for sparkle :-)The frame is a Nellie Snellen oval multiframe which I threaded with ribbon and made the bow with a bow easy :-) The papers and ticket sentiment are from a Bearly Mine CD. I added stickes to sparkle the flowers on there too :-) I had several failed attempts at making paper tulips ,, and have a go gluing prima flowers too ,,, but failed miserably so I used roses instead and some lovely rose leaves :-)

Paula and the DT have made some lovely cards for you to see so pop by the challenge blog to see them and please leave comments too :-)
