Sweet & Flowery - Paper Play DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I can breathe a sigh of relief as I managed to finish the DT cards I needed to get done early and posted in one of my DT blogs, phew lol. I didn't manage to make it to blogland yesterday and post my Paper Play DT card or answer a huge amount of emails as I had such a busy day with appointments, visiting my stepmother, finishing my DT cards etc and as always the poor old shoulder is feeling the effects of doing too much.

This weeks challenge at
is

  Nicole has set this challenge and we want to see your distinctive style, the style you are most passionate about and that reflects you at your best.
Ingredients -
Flowers - Magnolia, Prima & The Works
Fancy Corner - E-Crafts
Pearls - Blue Moon

Obviously I had to use a Tilda, a punch around the page and lots of lovely flowers & sparkle to show my style. I've gone for a pink & white colour combo as it's an old favourite but I am loving the blues at the moment.

I will post a quick tutorial over the next couple of days on how I make my card using the MS punch around the page as I have loads of emails requesting the info and it will be easier and quicker to explain by taking some piccy's as I make the card
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
All That Scraps - anything goes, For Fun - flowers/Mothers Day, Really Reasonable Ribbon - Double Dutch!, Craft Us Crazy - for mum/flowers, Pear Tree - free for all, Stamps & Fun - hearts, Papertake - anything goes, Top Tip Tuesday - open challenge, Magnolia Mania - hearts, A Spoon Full Of Sugar - white + 1, Stamp With Fun - lace/ribbon, Sketch & Stash - previous sketch # 53, Timbroscrapmania - metal & lace, Magnolia Down Under - ribbon & lace, Dream Valley - flowers, Magnolia Stamp Lovers - flowers, Just Magnolia - anything goes


Hubby is working this weekend so I will be resting my shoulder, doing some blogging & having a play with the copics I have had sat in my craft room neglected for ages. They are another of those essential crafty items I "needed" and so far have been a mahoosive waste of a lot of money, so I need to check out some tutorials and get playing.
Have a fabby weekend, and thanks for stopping by

P.S I've just tried to access my emails to send some replys to people but can't access my hotmail at the moment for some reason so I will reply asap xx
