#0010 Sassy Sketcharinos Blog Challenge

Good morning Blogging Friends.

Today sees another challenge over at 
Click on the link to check us out.

As usual we have a Sketch to follow and this is my interpretation from the Sketch below


You can use anything you like to join in with us , turn the sketch another way but we ask that you have the same design as above in your creation.

I am going 'Spotty' with my card this week and using up some retired colours and papers from 
Stampin' Up!

It is a Flip Top Card to which I attached a retired
Backing Paper called - Moonlight DSP Series Paper Stack.

To go with the design I opted for Hello Honey to pick out one of the colours from the DSP.

I used pieces of Self-Adhesive Lace Borders for the stripes.
My flowers were punched out using my Itty Bitty Flower Punch and the same selection of Punch for the Heart.
A few Pale Green Pearls were added to make my card 'Pop'

Please support the blog and join in with us, we, the DT, will visit and comment on your designs and one lucky person chosen by random may even be asked to be our Guest Designer for a week.

I look forward to seeing what you create and pop back next week for our next challenge.

New Challenge Blog - 'T' is for Texture and/or Teal

I have made a promise to myself that I will search out 5 new blogs and join in their challenges.

My first find is a lovely Blog designed, I think, with me in mind!

The Blog is called 


Right up my street as my followers know I am a Butterfly Addict

Click on the link above to find out more information and maybe join in.

For my card I used the following and are all available from Stampin' Up!

Base Card in Island Indigo embossed using the Fluttering Textured Embossing Folder

Centre Panel is Whisper White to which I have stamped on, stamped off using the same colour with one of my latest Stamp Sets called Timeless Textures

My additional Butterflies are from Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set using matching punches.

For my sentiment I chose to use 'Thinking of You' from the now retired set called 
Gift of Kindness
using the Word Window Punch which is also retired to punch it out.

A few Rhinestones have been added for effect and to give the butterflies a 'body'

I would love to hear from and promise will comment back on your blogs

I am entering this into 

I have a link in my sidebar should you wish to order Stampin Up Products from me.

I am back ready to Blog

Hello everyone.

It has been a long time since I last posted on here. I have been away for the winter months and decided to give my crafting a break.

I am back home now and looking forward to sharing my creations with you.

I am a Stampin Up Demonstrator and I love everything they produce. I recently earned a promotion to Bronze Elite and sadly missed the On Stage Live which was held in Telford last weekend.

The new catalogue will commence on June 2nd and run for 12 months. There are some lovely new goodies, including a colour refresh (gorgeous colours once again).

If you would like further information or would like to join my team, please contact me at
cbettany@hotmail. I will answer any questions and I am looking to do a few classes from my home.

This is a card I made for my BIL's 70th Birthday last weekend

All the products shown here are available through me from Stampin Up

I hope you like my card and I look forward to receiving comments on my blog. I will comment back on your blogs too.

Thanks for reading
