Sweet Stampin - Colours of your Flag


Well I have had a manic week, its been nuts! lol!  :)

The new puppy is a Time Bandit and my pc is poorly, the netbook has no software on it and my hubbys pc feels all blokey - its 'orrible!

Anyway, my card for today is for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin where this week our theme is 'Colours of your Nations Flag'.  We are sponsored by Letraset and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen, so brilliant prizes!

I am getting quite used to this Red, White & Blue malarky now, but I found it quite out of my comfort zone to begin with.  I coloured another gorgeous image from Crafts & Me, hand-stitched Prima and K & Co Papers and the punches are Martha Stewart (butterfly and border).  The corners are Cheery Lynn and the single flower is WOC.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Crafts & Me - Stitching
Totally Papercrafts - Lots of Layers

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I am struggling to get round commenting for the obvious reasons, but every comment is read and really appreciated and I will be visiting back over the next few days :)

Have a smashing weekend!

What a wonderful cards! Like all sparkly details :)

Sounds like you are busy, but fun, As you now have a puppy :)
For me it is just as busy, with renewing the home. We have repainted our bathroom. Tough, but it's so nice when it is finished. Then we have some other things going on here that makes me unable to access my craft corner at the moment, but it will be nice to bring order here at home. :) But everything has its time :)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend
Hugs

Sounds like you're not only chasing Time Bandit's tail but your own into the bargain. Love the delicate pale blues with the deep burgundy red. Very classy. Maybe something pink should gravitate towards the 'blokey' PC!
Take care.
