Going for 6

Evening peeps, oh I am naughty as trying to fit in as many challenges as possible mainly because I am still have trouble with "my peeps", see specialist tomorrow about my cataract, and my leg is still giving me gyp but after a couple of months one would think I should be used to it by now, hey ho here we go.

Stamp Something theme this week is For your Valentine. Whiff of Joy theme is a recipe of 3 Different Backing Papers, 2 Flowers and 1 Brad or Button. ABC is A for Anniversary or as they are being very kind by allowing a Valentine/Love theme too. My Time To Craft theme is Going for Gold. Kaboodle Doodles are celebrating their very first challenge of the year and the theme is a Love Theme and last but by no way least is Arty Girlz with their theme of Flowers.

3 Papers from Sugared pad by Basic Grey.
2 flowers made up with a Papermania silk flower and an Xcut retro flower punch with a flat backed pearl for centre. Just had to add a wee bit art glitter to these.
1 Gold Papermania heart brad.
Melinda blowing Kisses by Whiff of Joy, coloured with prisma´s and touches of glitter. Sentiment is a Studio G stamp.

My dear friend Susie passed this wonderful award onto me and I wish to pass this over to Jacqui at Cat´s Whiskers,Rachel at Papercrafts by Rach, Sharon at Cards n Greetings. Bev at All the things I love and last but not least Marcea at Marcea´s crafting corner.
Be prepared with cuppa in hand as these ladies all make awesome cards and will keep you engrossed for hours.
