Saturated Canary Challenge 17- May Flowers

 Papers- Steam Funk from Funky Hand

Afternoon Peeps!!
Its time for a fabby new challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog today and it is an absolutely gorgeous one!!!! its May, and every little bulb is starting to pop out in glorious colour so this week we want to see .....

Now how much fun is that???!!! I know ya'll love flowers!!!!

This gorgeous girl I have used will be available in early June, but she is just way too gorgeous not to use!! I am very lucky because I subscribe to the awesome Designed To Color Magazine. Though you can't get her now, please don't miss out on the mag, and don't worry too much about not getting this gorgeous girl because Krista said she might release her in early June.

I have linked you into the latest issue and oooh man, you so do not want to miss subscribing to it because it really is awesome. Huge huge hugs go to Carisa and her awesome troop of gorgeous peeps for getting it made and out there for us all to drool over!! The Designed To Colour blog is here too so you don't miss anything.

I just had to make myself some daisies. I LOVE daisies, they are just so cute and they just make me smile whenever I see them. For this card I made them using my Tim Holtz mini tattered florals die. I love that die!! I layered them up a bit and added a little bit of ink to the edges to give them some umpf!! I found a little flower button in my stash too so I just had to use that! I tore the edge of my paper and curled it round so you can see the polka dot paper underneath and the sewed my button on with a bit of twine.

Now, I know I always go on and on about this Steam Funk download but hopefully from this card you might be able to see why!!! Written all over it are real, proper crafty peeps definitions, I carefully punched out the corners on my image mat to say 'skill' on the bottom left one and 'crafty' on the top right. I added a 'create' definition sticker from my stash too.

Here's a bit of a close up of the image. You can just about see the sparklies and the glaze pen dots around her on this one but she really does look awesome IRL.

I  distress inked all around the edges of my image before adding the sparklies and glaze and I love how it came out.Here's my pile of pens!!
I even coloured  up her pens to look like my promarkers!!! 

So, pop on over to the Saturated Canary Challenge blog and feast your eyes on my awesome teamies creations and then get stuck in..Just remember to use a Saturated Canary Image or a Simply Sassy stamp.

Off to work for me today and I have to say I am feeling sluggish today, its that icky time of the month and I actually just really fancy climbing back under my duvet for the day so cuppa, tablets and heat pad and I should make it to 5:30pm!!!!

Thankyou so much for popping in on me, it always fills me with so much happiness to know you have wombled in on me.
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
