Today I'm posting my first card as a DT member of the Sweet Pea Stampers challenge blog. Yeeeeyyh! It's so exciting!! ;)
In fact, I'm in a VERY busy period right now - and the weather is fantastic too, so crafting isn't that much in my head right now... But I just HAD to make a card for the SPS blog - I've finished it outside in the gorgeous weather ;)
The theme is Swirls of Summer - pretty easy these days, huh ?!? ;) And we're sponsored by the Crafty Purple Frog, amazing decoupage papers !!
First I want to thank you ladies for the warm welcome into the Sweet Pea Stampers DT. You're all so sweet!
I also want to send a huge thank you to Ellen, for sending me 6 gorgeous Sweet Pea stamps - I won them in her candy some weeks ago. Hurray Mr.Random!!! *lol*
My card is made with Chelsea's beautiful CLP sketch for June. Thank you Chelsea, you're the best! Remember to enter the June challenge, you've got two weeks to enter - and we're sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps this month :)
Well, in fact I'm in a kind of hurry, I need to do some packing for all my family since we're heading for a weekend vacation in a few hours...
This card goes to the following challenges:
* Vintageudfordring - Use a stamp as an image
* Nord-Salten Hobbyklubb - Girlpower
* In A Sweet Pea Dream Challenge - Laces
