Coffee & Cream

Good Morning Folk, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I did not sleep well last night so after tossing and turning I decided to get up and have a cuppa and tidy up my craft space. Didn't do much tidying. I decided to visit some blogging friends and browse through some of my favourite challenge blogs. This card is the result. I think I will have to get up more often in the middle of the night cause I love how this card has turned out. I took elements from 7 challenges although I'm putting him into 8, the last challenge is anything goes.

A lot of the items I've used to make it are new. I went to the SECC in Glasgow to the Stitch and Craft Show. It was great. My Daughter and I had a fab day out and spent to much money.!!! My excuse is the show only happens twice a year.!!!! The new items on my card are:
Nestablilities labels 8 - pearl hat pins - foam flowers - Ribbon - WOJ stamp, ProMarkers
- chalks -hessian and tiny wood sticks.

The challenges are:

1. Whiff of Joy Challenge: A colour theme this week of Coffee & Cream
2. Crafty Creations Challenge: Shades of the same colour
3. Saturday Spotlight Challenge: Friendship
4. Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge: Monochromatic
5. Creative Inspirations Challenge: Lace, Pins, Pearls
6. Magical Crafts Challenge: Anything with wings
7. A Spoon full of Sugar Challenge: Beads
8. Ooh-la-la-Crafts Challenge: Anything goes.

If you have come to visit - thank you - do come back and see me again soon.

Hugs Suzi xx
