Stamp Something - Green & Cream, An Award and Some News!!

Good morning!! Well as the title of this post suggests, I have quite a bit to share today. 

First is my Stamp Something DT project.  This week our theme is Green & Cream and we are being sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts.

and the prize up for grabs is a Tilda Coloring Egg stamp from the Hoppy Easter Magnolia Stamp Collection and the wonderful Bow Easy tying tool. ( I seriously want that bow easy.. can I enter?? lol)

I used Magnolia's Sweet Tilda for my card. She is available on Bunny Zoe Crafts HERE. I've coloured her using distress inks and added a little dot of inkessentials gel pen to highlight her cheeks. 

I followed the sketch over on Magnolia-licious Highlites, added a charm as requested by Creative Inspirations, handmade my flowers for Crafty Creations and it also fits into the Fussy and Fancy Friday challege "Green".

My papers are also from Magnolia and I have edged them with forest moss distress ink. I added some cotton lace and tied ribbon over it then I placed 2 pins down into the bow securing them underneath with glossy accents. 

hmm, I recently saw a tutorial on how to do these handmade flowers.. I will search for it and post a link. The wonderful Michelle showed me how to make them :) So simple! 

Please don't forget to pay my teamies a visit and leave them some love. Links are over there -->

I am honoured to accept this wonderful award from Nilla. 

I need to pass it on to 6 other ladies whose blogs I really enjoy..


Now my news!! 

The wonderful ladies over on ABC Challenges have invited me to join their DT as a permanent member!! My first submission will be next Wednesday,  March 17th and I am so excited! Please do check it out, I'm sure you won't be disappointed :)
