My Favourite papers

Good Morning,
Today's post is scheduled so Hope MR Blogger is a good boy and helps me out.... My Mum is in Hospital as she had a stroke at the weekend and I am all at 6's and 7's and have not had time to get to do any commenting so please forgive me!....

The sponsor of this challenge is 
Penrith Crafts
Yes that is right its the fabulous Craft shop where I work!
The shop is a small independent craft shop (with very friendly staff! tehehehehee!)
So please do pop in if you're in Cumbria and see us.
The prize I am offering is some gorgeous papers, 
which might give you an indication as to our theme this week  
*wink* !!!

Did you guess?
This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project

using your Favourite papers and tell us why they are your Favourites?

So for my card....
Oh my favourite papers that's quite easy
I LOVE Echo park, why? because there are soooo many different style that suit my taste no matter what mood I am in :)

while I was making this card a few days ago the sun was shining and I reached for some papers and this spotty paper from the So Happy Together stack just popped right out at me!

The flower stamp was a present from Helen (thanks hunny!) I have had it for ages I think since my birthday last July and not used it and now I am asking myself why because I LOVE the effect, Its a stampendous stamp called Ruffled Bloom, and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

Here are some challenges I am playing:

Scrappers' Delights - S is for... Spotty & Stitching
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge Stitching - Ruffled Bloom stamp and lace Punch
Crafty CalendarThings with Wings

I really hope you can come join in
at As You Like It Challenge with us and 
showcase your Favourite papers & why?
My Teamies have created some awesome projects to inspire you so be sure to check them out too!

hugs me xx
