Scallops, anyone?

Hello there blogworld

Here I am again, hopefully having finally caught up with all my commenting (am scheduling my post Friday evening fully intending to go visit everyone after doing this) and next week returns to normal in Chez Sarah - so I shouldn't get so far behind again.  For 16 days - then the school breaks up!!!!!!!

Anyhow - the real reason for the post is that it is a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin and this week we would like to see your 'scallops'.  Now I thought that I had plenty of stuff that I could use, but when I came to look I was short on scallops - I could only find one die so that got pressed into service.

We are sponsored this month by Joanna Sheen, with a £10 voucher:

Our weekly sponsor is Crafts and Me (who very kindly gave a choice of two digis to the Design Team to use)

This is my not very scallopey card:

Afty farty side view:
I used:
Crafts and Me - Violet; coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers

Die-namics - Open Scallop Edge
Memory Box - Valerian Flourish

six by six My Minds Eye - Paris & Co

Anything else?
Viva Pearls
wooden flower
ribbon (coloured with Promarker)
Craftwork Cards - sentiment

So hopefully sometime this weekend I might even get to share the pictures from Emily's birthday party. Oooooh and I might, just might, be going to the cinema on Monday - going to be a saddo and go on my own at 10.30 in the morning, I wanted to see Snow White and the Huntsman - nobody else does so I'm off on my todd!

Cheerio for now,

Finally, a challenge, or two:
