Snow White's A Singing & A DT Call - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I spent a good few hours blogging yesterday and managed to catch up with so many gorgeous blogs and finished off one of the commissioned cards I need to make. Hubby had a right grump on as his cricket match was cancelled again due to the weather so I listened to his huffing and sighing for ages before I told him off and headed for some peace in my craft room, honestly aren't men like kids or is it just mine lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight we have a beautiful
 for you taken by our lovely Tanja

For my card today I have inked up my favourite Whiff Of Joy stamp from the Fall stamp club. I've never bought this stamp club before & was really worried if I'd like it or not after not liking the last Magnolia stamp club very much & I still haven't even cut the rubber, so I breathed a big sigh of relief when I saw them and looking at the little sneak peek I may have to buy the next one too lol.
Image - Whiff Of Joy from the Fall stamp club by Elizabeth Bell
Medium - Copics
Papers - Basic Grey, Green At Heart, it's retired so grab it quick!
Flowers - Hobbycraft, Kort & Gort, Prima & Wild Orchid
Sentiment - Magnolia
Button - Doodlebug
Seam binding & doily from stash
Tools - MS Cherry Blossom PATP,( currently out of stock but can be added to your Wish List ) Woodware small butterfly punch, Marianne Creatables Decorative Elegance

Sorry I haven't been able to list copic colours today, I'm still trying to get used to them & spend so long testing out if I like the combination of colours before using them on my image I forget what I've used as it's rarely the copics I intend using lol.

Here is the pretty photo inspiration we have for you this challenge

 This fortnight we also have a DT CALL at Addicted To Stamps
If you'd like to become part of a really friendly, happy, relaxed & super talented DT hop on over to the challenge blog and enter the
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Make It Colourful - ground it, Basic Grey - anything goes, One Stop Craft - bold & bright, Fussy & Fancy - use a lot (flowers), Jellypark Friends - favourite embellie (flowers), My Mum's Craft Shop - summer time, Stampavie & More - girls card, Anything Goes - birthday/celebration, Elphine House - fun in the sun, Sweet Sketch Wednesday - fab sketch, Flutterby Wednesday - punches &/or dies,  A Spoon Full Of Sugar - birthdays, Creative Inspirations - favourite stamp, Divas By Design - birthday, Cupcake Inspirations - inspirational piccy, colours & flowers

That's is from me peeps, my job of the day is pottering in the garden and cleaning out my greenhouse ready for all the geranium & fuchsia etc cuttings to go in and hopefully grow over winter, it's really time consuming but saves a fortune if you grow your own and I do love masses of flowers in my garden, now there's a surprise lol.
Thanks for stopping by
