Totally Papercrafts ,,,,, Thank You ,, + Wild Rose Studio DT card

Good Morning :-) OOhh I have had a lovely week ,,, bought some fab bargains in the sales ,,, a NEXT opened here recently ,, my fave UK shop and the prices are fab !! Now ,,, have I done the right thing ?? I have put on a little weight recently ,, which I blame on being diagnosed with Hypothyroid and NOT on all the Cadbury's Whole Nut that I wash down with a glass ( or 2 ) of red !!! lol ,, I bought 2 pairs of jeans that are size 12 ( I went up to a size 14) ,,, but I am determined to get into them :-) I also bought a lovely coat that is a snug fit !!!! lol. I am now teetotal and the choccy has gone ,,no more mince pies ,,,, !!! Wish me luck !!!! :-)I will take a piccy of me in them ,,,, WHEN not IF I get into them :-),,, apologies if I haven't visited you ,,, been too busy shopping !! :-)

Anyway ,, enough of me ,,, time for a new theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge. Emma was the hostess with the mostest for this challlenge but due to her work commitments she has had to step down from the team :-( Joanne has also decided the time has come to step down too ,, so it is a VERY sad day for us on the TPC. It is quite fitting that Emma chose the theme ,,


We would like to thank them for all their hard work and commitment to the team over the last few months since we started. I have met Joanne and Emma and I will be seeing them again on my trips home ,, so it isn't really goodbye and I will continue to stalk their blogs
On a brighter note Mandi aka Enchanted Occasions has agreed to join us !! Woo Hoo !! I love Mandi's simple and stunning style and am looking forward to some fabby tips :-) Mandi is also a SU Demo,, so if you need any stuff you know where to get it !! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Paula from Pollycraft and she is giving 2 of her new stamps to one lucky entrant !! :-)

For my card I used this very cute Milton with Flowers stamp from the Wild Rose Studio. I coloured the image with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, I inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. The papers are from a couple of Paper Packs from the WRS too. I added Star Dust Stickles to hightlight . I used a Martha Stewart Double Loop punch and some ribbon and gems from my drawer, I also added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. The sentimet is from a WRS sentiment set. I am running out of decent DSST so I am being VERY economical with what little I have left and have got my sewing machine out !!!!
