Hi all just want to let you know we have another great Challenge for you this week at
The challenge this week is hosted by the lovely Vee
and she has a great tutorial for you too!
so make sure you check that out!!

The Challenge this week is
In the 'Frame' Challenge

Here's my Card

The Butterfly is a Hero Arts and U have stamped it with tattered rose and cut the 2nd image down a little for dimension, My card was also inspired by a new challenge called  Less is More I found their challenge this week and well its their first challenge too! so YAY! Week 1 Colour Challenge: Pink, Black and White
It must be a miracle as they have me making a card with PINK! yes Me I made a card with Pink!

In fact I enjoyed making this card for their challenge so much I made 2....
I have been playing with this Hero Arts three ferns stamp and well I LOVE it!
also in PINK! and black on a white card
 What do you think?

Found a couple of other great challenges too!

Charisma Cardz - No embellishments - both cards
Delightful Challenges - Something that flies or has wings - 1st card :0)
Paper Play - Stamp it out (use a stamp) - both cards

Now I want to share another card with you but this one is really special and I was kinda hoping you might be able to make a special card to?  You see this card is for a little boy called Luke
My lovely friend Lacey is holding a card drive for Luke and she is a family friend and when I read about Luke and his Family I knew I had to make a card.... I really hope he likes it
If you can please make a card for Luke too!

The Layout is also thanks for Lacey and the Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge 47
Lacey has done this wonderful sketch

I have used this Cute little Monster which is a Stamp Fairy Image you can find here in Critters
I have used distress inks to colour him and distressed the Dotty Ann tape, added his name with metal tags and also some button twine and have machine stitched my card too!
Critter Challenge #51 - Critters :0)
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - Stitching - might be to late for this one ?
I'm off to my water colour class today and wanted to show you what I have been up to this week
I hope my teacher likes what I have done so far do you think he will?

Don't forget this is not a finished painting! by far! 

Happy Tuesday all x
