you must go and check out the new stamptacular sunday challenge blog, they've got loads of challenges and the most fabulous design team who have created some amazing projects and all very different,

the first challenge is to create a card or other project for a special friend letting them know how much they mean to you. Please be sure to include the following :

* ribbon
* two different pattern papers
* sentiment
* at least one flower, and of course, some sort of stamping!

This is my entry; the image is "dancing maggie" from sugar nellie the background is "fall grass" by whiff of joy, coloured with promarkers and cut with a nestie,the papers are forever friends, the flowers are prima and papermania & the sentiment stamp from a qvc kit yonks ago, cut with a nestie and run through the stylised flowers embossing folder,the brads are papermania and the spacers are from ebay, the swirl stamp was a freebee from cardmaking and papercraft mag and the ribbon is from my stash oh and the Martha stewart doily punch also had an outing too !!
