Happy Saturday my wonderful & favourite challenge participants!!  I'm delighted so many of you are enjoying our challenges & submitting the most fabulous cards.  You need to keep challenging Tracey's brain when she picks the spotlight lol!  I'm sure you'll be almost as excited as me when I tell you it's less than 30 days to my concert..... You're not?  Must just be me then!!  BUT I know you will be excited to learn that we have a fabulous new challenge for you this week, hand picked by the very lovely Wedgie who would love to see your FASHION creations.

We're sponsored by the fabulous Stamping Boutique this week with a prize of 5 digi images of your choice, thanks so much Tracey!  We've showcased some of Tracey's amazing images below.

Cute & Cuddly

What a difference a week makes, there's been so much going on in my life this week that last Saturday feels like forever ago, you ever had that feeling?  I've spent most of the week in a state of extreme excitement though as I've booked to see my first ever full scale live concert!!!

Anyway, on to the matter in hand:  This week we want to see all your Cute & Cuddly creations.

We're sponsored this week by the wonderful Di's Digi Downloads who is offering a fabulous 5 digi's from her shop.  Di was kind enough to give the DT digi's to play with this week, thanks Di, we've all loved working with them.

Something unusual happening today...

Good Morning Sweet Stampers on this sunny Saturday morning. Before we get on to this week's challenge we would just like to say a huge thanks to everybody for their fantastic entries last week...we had a super duper amount so keep 'em coming!!

Today's challenge chosen by the lovely Jenny is to use something unusual, something that you would not normally use on a get those thinking hats on and get crafting but the normal rules still apply, you must include something stamped and 2 entries per person but you combine your entry with as many others challenges as you like.

Our sponsor this week is Tiffany Doodles.....

Tiffany Doodles

Tiffany is offering the winner their choice of 5 of her fabulous digi stamps.

Unfortunately our guest designer for July couldn't start this week but she will be here next week with bells on!!   Also huge thanks to Lesley who gave us such beautiful inspiration for June.

Some inspiration from the Sweet Stampers.....

The flower is made out of party favor bags, and the little tab of paper with the sentiment stamped on it is actually the back side of a paper plate that I cut with my Nestabilities, then misted it with my Glimmer Mists to make it SPARKLY!!!

This is my card for the something unusual challenge, I've used simple cardboard, I've used dies to cut out a heart & corner (behind the flowers) put them through the ribbler, painted them with crackle paint and edged with distress inks.

I have made this card for the challenge something unusual ....
I have used sugar strands on the cupcake.

Jenny used a dressing from a large supply she has in her First Aid Cupboard. She used one to make a twisted flower.

I have used "Material" as my backing "paper", material bought for another project that did not involve paper crafting.. is my card for the next challenge..."Use something unusual"...I have used some plaster scrim from my hubby's plaster bag...don't tell him...hehehe..


I used some first aid materials left over from Holly's recent mishap. I have used a sterile dressing and the flowers have been from absorbant lint.


Has decorated a pretty!!
