As you are reading this post I am on a plane and heading off to Benidorm with Mum and Sister for a three day Birthday bash for Mandy (Sister), so let you in on all the gossip when I get home!
As it's Saturday another challenge awaits you at Sweet Stampin'. This week it's "Spring Flowers"..I hope this means that Spring is on it's way....Yipee!
Our Sponsors this week are "Petal Lu".
I hope you like the card I have made for this week's challenge, it is for my Sister's Birthday today. I have used a Printed Panel with a flower print on. This image is one I picked up last year and it's made by Kanban. I don't normally like many Kanban toppers (a bit blingy for me!) but i actually like these flower toppers and there's a space to add a Sentiment (which is what I have done).The added Happy Days is something I wouldn't have put on a card, but it's my Sister's favorite saying and tattoo, so added it at the last minute.
There are four images of these flowers to a sheet and some of the others would work perfectly as a sympathy card, and unfortunately we all need to make these at some time!
I have used some leftover papers from my stash box, I added a few enamel dots, a filigree metal butterfly and some sheer ribbon. The punched border shape is an X cut punch. The flower is sparkled up a bit with some Stickles.

Hope you are all well this Bright and Sunny Day (well for me anyway!)
I have a Scrapbook Page to show you today.
I am finally getting round to Scrapping the pictures from a couple of my Benidorm Holidays last year.
This photo is from exactly a year ago, 22nd of February 2014 to be precise.
I have managed to make three pages this week, and the other's are all of the Benidorm June 2014 Holls.
I have chosen to follow the sketch over on the "Stuck!" Challenge, it's a great sketch so thank you girls.
I have used three different sheets of Kaisercraft Papers, the background green sheet with the butterflies on is one of my favorites and I have several sheets of it. I stamped all over with distress ink splodges from a set by Stampin' Up called Gorgeous Grunge (love this set).
Arrow Dies are Little B
Crochet Flower is Little Birdie
I have also used some hessian, and paint circles.
Right, that's me off to the Gym........DebbieX

Can you believe it's February already (something tells me that this year is gunna Zoom by just like last year).
I have a Holiday to Amsterdam in 6 weeks, can't wait (apart from the flying part!). Hubby and I have not been away for ages, so really looking forward to it.
Then before I know it, I will be popping off to Benidorm again with Mum and Sister in June, and with a bit of luck we might have enough money to do another trip in November!!! Wishful thinking, but we managed it last year, so lets see!
So.......Onto the Challenge this week at Sweet Stampin'......"Add a Heart" (perfect challenge if you have a Valentines card to make!)
Our Sponsors this week are Quixotic Paperie.
I have also used the "Free" Heart stamp off the cover of February's Craft Stamper Magazine, a great stamp, perfect for this weeks challenge.
I coloured the image with Copic's and used my Tonic die's for the matting. I have added a small Hobby House Heart to the corner and a touch of mock stitching.
