Stampin' for the Weekend - Getting to Know You


2 posts in as many hours, lol.. If you are looking for my Stamp Something DT you will find it HERE.

This fortnights challenge on Stampin' for the Weekend is...
"Getting to Know You"

Use inspiration from your favourite book.
 
We have two sponsors for this challenge and they are
 
 
Who is offering 12 of her greetings cards and a digital image of the winners choice..

And

Tracey from Spesch Stamps is offering a prize too


The Winner will be able to choose three Digital Images from the current selection of Spesch Stamps!

There is also some sad news over on the SFTW blog. Kimmi, co founder of the Stampin' challenge blog has decided it's time for her to step down for personal reasons. Please pop over and wish her well. On behalf of the team, I know she will be missed. 

For my card I took inspiration from my favourite books as a child, which were the Malory Towers and St. Clare books. I read every single one of them and have all but "In the First at Malory Towers" collected for my own daughter to read when she gets a little older. They are such fun books, filled with school shinanigans and midnight feasts!! I hope she will enjoy them as much as I did... I may even read them again :D 

Again, I used the sketch over on Mo's Dream Team blog and my image is called "Psst... Dani and Taylor".


I coloured my image with copic markers and added a touch of stickles to the heart. My papers are BG Nook & Pantry and coredinations cardstock. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts :) I added some pink skittles, from Pezadoodle Designs, around the corners of my papers and finished off by adding stickles around the edges of my image. All of my papers have been edged with Vintage Photo distress ink. 

Well that's it from me today.  Friday is my busy, busy, busy day and I'm away tomorrow giving a class in Galway. 

Have a wonderful weekend!!
