LIM week 30!

Morning all!!

It's my day off today so I am having a lazy day, catching up on blogging, crafting and general bits and bobs.

Over at the LIM challenge this week the theme is TAKE 3 CHALLENGES. Chrissie and Mandi want us to choose 3 from any of the previous 29 challenges and combine them our your design.
So after much deliberation I decided on :

Week 10 - Sentiment Only
Week 13 - Congrats or Thank you
Week 19 - In the Frame

I made a congratulations card for my cousin who has just got her GCSE results. She got 13 in total all C and above and she is over the moon, so I just wanted to say well done!!

Materials

CS: SU Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Papers: SU Sweet Stitches Designer Series

Stamps: SU Curly Cute

Tools: Top Note Bigz Die, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight ink pads

Misc: Sponge daubers

Love these bright and cheery colours, very summery, unlike our british weather at the moment.

Well thanks for stopping by today. I'm off for a look to see what everyone else has been up to for this weeks LIM challenge!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
