Some Odd Girl GDT & Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges

Hi everyone. Well it's been one of those weeks. Loads to do but a million and one distractions so nothing getting done! I will be glad to see the weekend!.

Today I have 2 cards to share..... but first I just wanted to update on the GBCE event being held in the Athlone Springs Hotel, Athlone, Co. Westmeath from Sept 30th- Oct 2nd. We have twisted both of her arms and finally convinced Miss Mouse herself, from Waltzingmouse Stamps to attend!!! There will be a WMS class and the store will be there too!! All the details can be found on the GBCE blog :)

I recently won the Some Odd Girl Guest challenge over on Facebook so I get to be their Guest Designer for the next 2 mths - woot woot!! The first challenge couldn't have been more perfect for me as I LOVE to stitch my cards. -- yup, the challenge is Stitching, Real or Faux. 

Don't you just adore this little cutie - Kiss a Prince Tia. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and I just had to use it with this image, lol. 

My papers are My Mind's Eye Lost & Found "Blush" and they've been matted and stitched down onto pink and brown cardstock from The Paper Mill. I used the scalloped circle nesties to matt my image. 

Challenges -
