Pink Elephant Challenge # 17

Morning Folks.....a bit of a change in the weather this morning....much cooler...in fact after all that glorious sunshine...it feels positively arctic and you know what they say...."the north wind shall blow and we shall have snow"....oh dear I hope not.....I am so getting used to these lovely bright sunny mornings...up with the birdies and all my non crafty chores done and dusted before 9.00am which means lots of crafty time.......it was great while it lasted....but the crafty schedule took a bit of a hit....so hard to drag myself out of the sun into the cubbyhole.
The challenge this week on "THE PINK ELEPHANT" is a recipe.......

3 BUTTONS....2 LAYERS....1 SENTIMENT
Stamps..Background: Hero Arts Old Letter Writing....Friends
Circle Journal Image: Hero Arts "Fill your Heart"
Leaves: Hero Arts "Scattered Leaves"
Sentiment: Jillibean Orange Graph Alphabet Stickers
Flowers: Prima
Buttons: Basic Grey Granola
Ribbon: American Crafts
Hearts: Fiskars Small Heart Squeeze Punch
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress...Antique Linen..Brushed Corduroy
Oh yes... another Hero Arts card but I just can't leave these stamps alone at the moment.....will apologise in advance for boring you all to tears singing the praises of these gorgeous stamps...and I have fallen in love with this cute circle journal stamp.... be warned it will be popping up here...there and everywhere.
Can't believe where the week is going.....tomorrow is Sneaky Peek Thursday already......so had better crack on and get the DT stuff done and dusted.....and then maybe some time to play... I am managing to sneak one or challenge cards in.....off to have a quick whizz round with Mr Dyson and then it's time for our morning stroll....back to the cosy fleece this morning me thinks....catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxxx
P.S. And don't forget today sees the launch of CAROL'S SKETCH FUN....so pop over for a fabulous sketch and join in the fun.
