I really wanted to challenge myself for this one and I decided to use just one die cut to show you all how easy it would be to join in with us, can you pick it out yet?
Its on the sentiment, just one simple die cut nestie circle that I then stamped my sentiment on!! simples!!!

My stamp is one of the gorgeous new Saturated Canary Wallflower. She is just awesome, this was her first inking and she stamped a dream!! I paper pieced her shoes and the top layer of her dress to match the papers and then cut out a couple of the little journalling shapes from the papers too pop behind her. She is  coloured with promarkers and popped up on some silicone so she didn't melt into the background. 
The twine is MME Merry and Bright.

Now before I go I want to share the tutorial I made last night with my Movie maker software! it was so much fun to play with..plus I don't have to torture you all with my daft squeeky voice!! he he he!!! its  a tutorial on how to use the new Lollipop Treats die from Die-namics. Its awesome!!! I have 5 made already!! Mo thinks they are fanatastic.....(and keeps stealing the lollies out of them!! romfl!!)
Hope you like it!!
Ok, so that really is me finished posting for today!
I have yet more ironing to finish and a cute little guy to get to school.
Thank you for popping back in on me
