Spotty, Dotty Frenzy!


Good Morning!

You'll be pleased to know I didn't evaporate at the Man Candy Fire Men on display at the (Blue Lolly) Park yesterday, so I can tell you all about the new Challenges over at Cupcake and Sketch n Stash.


First up, at Cupcake, Liza has designed a gorgeous Sketch for us to follow. Feel free to add any seasoning you like, so long as we can spot the basic elements of the sketch, we'll be happy!


We have two fabby sponsors; Crafty Emma's Store and Tickled Pink Stamps this week, on top of our Icing on the Cupcake Monthly Sponsor; Little Claire Designs.

Recipe
Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Blossom Soup; Jillibean Soup
Image: Introducing Alfie; Rainbow Studios
Colouring: SU! Inks and Old Faithful, Status; Love You!
Tools: Nesties, Scallop Border Die; Die-Namics
Other: Buttons and Stickles; The Ribbon Girl


Over at Sketch n Stash, not surprisingly, we have a new Sketch for you to play with, this time created by Vicky.


We're sponsored by Meljen's Designs. All you need to do for a chance to win some stash, is follow the sketch, which you can flip if you wish, or add bits too, just so long as the basics are recognisable. Don't forget to tell us about your stash, new or old.


The stamp is new, thank you Rainbows, (and will be released in a few weeks.) and as I've had the papers a few weeks, they are stash. The charm, string and raffia are vintage!!

Don't forget to pop over to Cupcake and Sketch n Stash to see the wonderful creations from all my Talented Teamies. As for me, I feel PANTS! :(

Fab cards Fluffy. Did I ever tell you the story when at Playgroup the Firemen said they would call andlet the children climb on the engine, Oh great I said. See you at 10am on Monday. Monday came and so did 10am, NO SHOW!
When they finally turned up I said Hey you lot are late, you said 10am and its nearly 11....To which the "Gorgeous" fireman (they were all gorgeous!!) said (In a very sorry voice) OH SO SORRY WE WERE JUST PUTTING OUT A FIRE, IS THAT OK!!!!!!!!!!
After I climbed out tof the whole I had jumped in with embarressment, I said OH sorry.
