I'm seeing spots....

or is it dots?  I can never tell.

So how are we this fine morning, my bloggy friends?

I'm here again so quickly as it's a new challenge over at Divas by Design, it's Team A's turn and the theme this week is: Spots and/or Stripes and I went with spots (or is it dots - see above!).

Our wonderful sponsor this week is:

Meljen's Designs is a lovely stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical rubber and digital images inspired by her kids and family. Meljen's Designs has new releases along with a new challenge every Thursday, freebies every Monday and a Guest Designer each month at the Meljen's Designs Blog.

This is my little creation:

Detail of image:
 So I used:

Meljens stamp: Topsy Turvy Cake - coloured with my Prisma pencils and a touch of Stickles.
No idea who the paper is by, it's been in my stuff for at least 5 years and I've finally used some of it!
Fiskars border punch
Flowers and brad from my stuff.
Craftwork Cards - card blank and sentiment.

Hope that you can find time to pop over to see the other Divas wonderful creations and join in the fun this week yourself.

Cheerio for now,

A challenge, or two:

Crafty Boots Challenges: Food Glorious Food

Addicted to Stamps: Birthday card with dots

Totally Gorjuss: Challenge 120 - Yummy!

Hi Sarah. I moved here from Lincoln last year. I used to travel up here for the GNPE show but now it is only 15 mins away for me. How lucky am I? I did go to the one at the Showground in Lincoln last year and it was good but here I can go back the next day if I wanted to(LOL).
Maybe I'll see you up here on day!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my office! If you are ever in the states come visit me haha, yes husbands can be so practical, mine says you should really keep the office neat with everything in its place....seriously? Hahaha got to love them!

Yay you for using some old paper! I'm really thinking I need to get into more of this stuff now I have had a good clean lol! I have a whole host of magnolia minis I have never used how bad is that?!
I wish I didn't have to work seriously I would just craft all the time! But hubby doesn't earn enough for me to give up altogether and I guess I do like it when it's just part time I have made a tonne of friends through it, the only way we do it is for hubby to work mon-fri and me work all weekend, means we hardly see each other but then maybe thats why we are still together lol!
Love the card and the fab image!
Hugs rebekah xx
