Well as this card goes live (scheduled)...I will be flying through the air on the way to Benidorm with Mum and Sister. We last went in May, so we are soooo looking forward to going back.
We are meeting our friends at La Nucia (about 6 miles from the center of Benidorm) and other friends are already their and waiting for us.
So.... This is my card for the Challenge this week of "Use Dies and Punches" at Sweet Stampin', and our sponsors this week are "Live and Love Crafts".
Please don't forget we are a stamping challenge so some stamping somewhere (look at my card this week, it has a topper and dies and the only stamping is the sentiment, but that's acceptable!)
I have used both dies and punches on this card. I usually use these anyway, so this challenge is perfect for me.
The image is a LOTV topper and the papers are Dovecraft. The little bunting which i use all the time is a Memory Box die. The punched border is a MS punch. I have added some Stardust Stickles and a couple of Hobby House pearls. The sentiment is a Hero Art stamp.

Saturday in October means Challenge Time @ Sweet Stampin'....It's an easy one this week too, as it's "Antiques Roadshow" Which basically means "Use an old stamp".
Please remember we are a stamping challenge so you must stamp somewhere, ta.
I have chosen one of my little Easels for this week, oh I love making these.
I start by stamping a script stamp on the actual easel frame, then I work on the little topper for the frame.
I used some Pion Papers cut up and a few cut aparts from Graphic 45 papers. I have also used a large enamel heart button. The "Antiques roadshow old stamp" bit is one of my all time favorite Sentiment Stamps which I have had since I first began crafting (what feels like a hundred years ago!)
This "Live in the Moment" Stamp (by Hero Arts) has been used by me on so many projects It is always a "go to" for little projects like this..

I have scheduled this post as I am off "Spending" today...I will be at Port Sunlight "Happy Stamper" show, ooooo love it their. Come say hi if you are around.
Gosh, doesn't time fly, it's October already and only (28 days off my next holls to Benidorm with Mum and Sister) Yipeeeeee
So it's Saturday again, so another Sweet Stampin's Challenge for you and it's "Wheels" this week...
Our Sponsors are "US" so a goodie bag is up for grabs!
Please remember we are a STAMPING challenge, so you must stamp somewhere to be in the draw.
I am not very keen on the card I came up with, but I was having a play, so at the end of the day, it's all good fun.
The lovely stamps are freebies off a magazine I bought ages ago and the mask is by Clarity. I used a couple of Tim inks as the background. Wanted to keep it C&S and just play about with inks really.
