Piling it on - and on, and on, and on!!!!

Well it's been a strange week here. We've been car hunting and car buying. Then Ben caught a sniffle and then I caught it too so I've been pretty rough for a few days to be honest.

Managed to make a card tonight without sniffling all over it so that's an improvement anyway!!

Catching up on all the challenges on one card here - in the true spirit of Pile it On who want to see "Round" things. My Basic Grey Indian Summer paper is just circles galore and we've got a button and a round sentiment to cover this bit.

Then A Spoonful of Sugar want to see "Distressing" so I used my Fiskars tool to distress the edge of all the Designer Paper.

The theme from Stamp Something is to use your favourite stamp and also die cuts/punches. I've used my Magnolia Swirl stamp with Versamagic Chalk inks on the Bazzill cardstock, punched out the hearts and die cut the sentiment with Nesties.

Passion for Promarkers want to see something girly and sparkly in any colours of your choice. I've glittered the hearts and used Anita's Glitterations border peel-offs along the edges of this lovely Penny Black Hedgehog (well I think he's girly - I wouldn't send him to a man anyway!!).

Finally (phew!) the team from Penny Black Saturday want to see your "Heart's Desire" on your card and I think I've got that more than covered!!

Thanks for looking.

Still here. It's been a busy week. DH came home on Thursday. We have been tooing and froing like mad catching up with everyone and having family time also.

BIG news is that my carrots came second in the local Flower Show (well it's big news to me!!). Apparently this is somewhat of a coup in my first year so there are some disgruntled chaps. Oooops!!

Will be back on Thursday with my CCT DT card.
