OK, seriously who

stole Summer?

Hello blogworld

Well we went to the circus yesterday and it rained, rained, rained and rained then nature threw in some thunder for good measure!  Made for a lovely accompaniment for the music the show people were playing!!

Weather aside, we had a great time and the kids (went with a couple of friends) were transfixed - Emily has now decided that she doesn't want to be in the Olympics - she now wants to be a Trapeeze artist!

Anyway, again, I'm not here really to waffle about my life, but to let you know that there is a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies and we would like to see your creations with 'Spots and Stripes'.

We have two fab sponsors - Bugaboo Digital Stamps and Stamp and Create - pop on over to the blog to see what great prizes are on offer.

The DT were allowed to pick an image to use for this challenge and this is what I came up with -

Arty farty side shot:

Trying to show the glitter on the wings (nice arty shot don't ya think!):

I used:

Bugaboo Digi stamp - Brats Bugs - Girl Ladybug
coloured with Promarkers

D'you know I'm not sure!  They are both scraps - I will see if I can find some details!

What no dies?!

Anything else?
Ribbon and button - from my stuff
Glamour dust on wings
Craftwork cards - card blank and sentiment
Oh and a bit of Distress Ink

That's all folks - hope you all had a lovely weekend are thinking of popping over to the Cuties and joining us in the fun!


A challenge, or two:

I love Promarkers: Challenge 128 - Spots and Stripes

Great Impressions : Walk on the Wild Side (animals) - I hope the ladybirds qualify?

That Craft Place Challenge: Things with wings
