These are a few of my favourite things!!

Good morning all! The sun is shining and it looks like it going to be a beautiful day. The only fly in the ointment this weekend is that I am working! :-( I hope it won't be too busy! The theme over at papertake weekly this week is 'favourite things'. Well for me the list is endless but here is a card I made using some of my favourite craft items and crafting techniques. I also used the technique of paper peicing {which is a favourite of mine} and which also meets with the challenge over at Simon says stamp this week. After I'd completed this card I also discovered {accidentally} that it aslo meets with this weeks challenge over at a spoonful of sugar, which is 'hearts'. I love it when you are able to combine challenges on a card, time is such a precious comodity for me at the moment. Why oh why do we have to work! Lol!

One of my favourite stamp designers at the moment is Leanne Ellis. I adore these stamps of her {by sugar nellie available at funky kits}, they are so easy to use, and so cute! I have coloured her in with my fabulous koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor, and it is the first time I have used this 'luvvie' image to give her blonde hair {Shes's normally a brunette}, I think it suits her! I have paper peiced the heart with papers from the sweet nothing range by papermania. I have also added a pearl to the flower in her hair {I adore pearls at the minute as well and they appear on nearly all of my projects!}. The CS is coredinations and I have distressed it with an emery board. The sentiment is from Elzybells {the everyday greetings set, another favourite of mine at the minute}. I created the scalloped edge to the card with my SU border punch and added the holes with my cropodile.

Well that's all from me for now, best finish my breakfast and head off to work. I'll be having a look at all your wonderful creations when I get home from work tonight!

Have a great weekend whatever you're up to and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
